With the anticipated gadget about to hit the market, there have been a number of places where the Google glasses have already been banned from, except the classroom.

The new tech specs that has been pushed to be released in 2014 has so far been banned from movie theaters, strip clubs and other private events, but the glasses with its ability to record and have images and notes appear right before the eyes may help students better learn new material. Students can record, share and stream things that they found useful during there lectures and make studying for test more easier as they do have to always bee buried in a book as they can read through the eye of the glass.

Dr. Quincy Martin III, who serves as the Associate Vice President of Triton College, said that although he doesn’t know much about the new eyewear, he thinks it can be useful in the class room. “I do believe that various technologies can be infused into the learning environment to enhance it. For instance, students or teachers could use Glass for assignments, projects, or activities that may entail conducting interviews.” Martin said.

“This way, the interview could be perceived as more natural while recording and seeking ways for improvement after review. Or, perhaps Glass could be used by students in a speech class to capture the reactions and nonverbal of their audience in order to strengthen public speaking skills. I am quite certain there are numerous benefits to Glass. The challenge is determining if Glass is the most effective option for desired results.”

Just as the banned places mentioned earlier, there too maybe bans in schools with all that the eyewear can do. Some places along a school setting may have banned signs for the glasses including locker rooms and pool and shower areas.
