Exploring Technology-Enhanced Learning Using Google Glass to Offer Students a Unique Instructor's Point of View Live Laboratory Demonstration
Man, Fung Fun
Journal of Chemical Education, v93 n12 p2117-2122 Dec 2016
Technology-enhanced learning (TEL) is fast gaining momentum among educational institutions all over the world. The usual way in which laboratory instructional videos are filmed takes the third-person view. However, such videos are not as realistic and sensorial. With the advent of Google Glass and GoPro cameras, a more personal and effective way to educate students on laboratory procedures has been pioneered: the instructor's point of view (IPOV) technique. To capture the attention of technology-savvy students in the 21st century, educators have to be innovative and reinvent new ways to teach procedures for conducting chemistry experiments. Here, this pilot study made use of Google Glass to film realistic IPOV videos (live and prelab) from the demonstrator's point of view. Students who have viewed the videos were found to have a better understanding of the tasks at hand when conducting the experiment.
