KHS Students Attend Google Glass Class
Students enrolled in the Computer Science & Software Engineering class at the KHS were introduced to Google Glass Wednesday, October 23rd. "Susan Woehrman, PLTW (Project Lead The Way) Partnership team member, was able to coordinate a visit from Darrin Clawson, the CEO of Engage Mobile to demonstrate Google Glass to the 24 students," says Mary Howard, the PLTW Engineering Instructor and KHS Algebra II teacher. She went on to say, "students recently completed building their first App for android devices. They were very excited to hear that they would be able to see Google Glass and hear from a leader in the industry about how it works and how its Apps are built." Many students dressed in slacks and a tie to show professional respect for this business and technology leader. Mr. Clawson wore the titanium framed, no lens glasses during the presentation and gave it swipe and voice commands to take photos, post photos to social media websites, take video, send email, and make phone calls. He provided examples of practical applications in the business world and encouraged the students to seek creative solutions using Google Glass for different industries. During and after the presentation the students asked innovative questions such as "is it possible to use the motion of your head to scroll through menus on Google Glass?" and "Could it be used to assist the blind become more mobile?" Several students had ideas for Apps for the Google Glass. One idea discussed was a translator function. Mr. Clawson shared an example of a practical function for two surgeons. A surgeon in the US could call the best surgeon in the world, who is in China and only speaks Mandarin. The surgeon in China could watch what the surgeon in the US while he operated and at the same time, the surgeon in the US could see the surgeon in China in the small Google Glass window above his right eye. If the translator App was installed, it could allow each surgeon to speak in their native language and be translated appropriately. After the class was over and students were dismissed, several stayed and many more students and teachers filtered in from other classes making sure not to miss the opportunity to see Google Glass. The Kearney Courier attended and was able to document this occasion as well. Google Glass has only been distributed to 800 technical companies in the nation and is not currently available to the public. With the future possibilities for Wi-Fi technology, Phase III of the district's Infrastructure plan is under way and sets the ground work for a district wide Wi-Fi solution, allowing for the BOYD initiative to launch district wide.Read More
