Wearable Writing: Enriching Student Peer Review with Point-of-View Video Feedback Using Google Glass
Tham, Jason Chew Kit
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v47 n1 p22-55 Jan 2017
As technology continues to become more ubiquitous and touches almost every aspect of the composing process, students and teachers are faced with new means to make writing a multimodal experience. This article embraces the emerging sector of wearable technology, presenting wearable writing strategies that would reimagine composition pedagogy. Specifically, the article introduces Google Glass and explores its affordances in reframing student peer-review activities. To do so, the author presents a brief overview of wearables and writing technology, a case study of how the author deployed Google Glass in a first-year writing course, and a set of tips for using wearable technology in general and technical writing courses.
