Peek into the future and explore this hands on workshop with Google Glasses. Attendees will get to experience the world through the Google Glass lenses. Google Glass connects the physical world and virtual world like no product has ever in the past. This revolutionary hardware is just becoming available to consumers. Libraries throughout the world are finding unique and educational ways to utilize Google Glass as a resource. Join in to hear how Google Glass and the Internet of Things are changing the way we will interact with computers, each other, our homes, schools and libraries in the future.

Academic Library staff will be interested in this workshop because Google Glasses have the potential to transform research. As a core part of the academic research community, academic libraries are now lending Google Glasses to faculty and students for research and enabling transformational learning.

Public Library staff will find this training beneficial because Google Glasses are a transformative technology that can impact how librarians interact with the public, look up data, help users with job training and more. These glasses will change the user experience and your experience.
School Librarians and Media Specialists will benefit from this course as they are often the technology hub of the school. Google Glass will transform student research and help bring information to life in new revolutionary ideas including virtual field trips. Schools are using Glasses to see school through the eyes of students of all age ranges. Find out about success projects and Google Glass implementations in school libraries during this program.

Special Libraries will be interested in this workshop because it will help them stay ahead of the technology curve, how Google Glass has the potential to transform how they work and live.
