Google Glass at the iSchool

“Anthony Rotolo, Assistant Professor of Practice at the School of Information Studies (iSchool), is known for integrating new technologies into the classroom. This fall Rotolo plans to use Google’s new wearable display technology, Google Glass, in one of his classes to see what this unique product has to offer in an educational setting. Rotolo plans to use Glass to display Tweets that he encourages students to share during his lectures.  “Twitter is often hard to filter, so I am working with engineers in the NEXIS lab to create software to filter what comes across my Glass display,” explained Rotolo.” (via Syracuse University)

The iSchool’s First MOOC: Lessons Learned

“I recently worked with a team that offered a four-week massive open online course (MOOC) here at the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University: “An Introduction to Data Science with R.” I’m an iSchool doctoral student and eScience Fellow, and felt fortunate to have an opportunity to get my feet wet teaching data science research methods and improve my presentation and video production skills in this new educational medium.” (via Information Space)
