How AR Smart Glasses can Improve Education
Both Students and Teachers to Benefit from Smart Glasses
One of today’s challenges for the public education system is keeping pace with an ever changing electronic world. Even post-secondary institutions are working hard to equip the next generation with the skills needed to thrive in a constantly evolving workforce.
However, augmented reality (AR) smart glasses offer a solution. Granted, academic institutions are slow to integrate the latest technological advances into lesson plans.
This will change as educators become exposed to affordable, innovative hardware. Moreover, the current generation of learners are digital natives who will no doubt use advanced tech in their future careers.
Modern classrooms must learn to leverage modern technologies.
Teaching Without Limits
As a result, the need to leverage modern tech in classrooms is pressing. Specifically, AR smart glasses present teachers several advantages.
First, learning preferences and stats can hover about students in smart glass lenses. Especially in larger classes where one-on-one time is limited, this personalizes the learning experience.
Secondly, prompts can indicate student engagement. Teachers can instantly know if a student is distracted, cheating, or on-task.
Eventually, teachers will be able to view student statistics in real-time.

Similarly, any tasks that teachers currently perform with a clipboard can be phased out. This involves administrative duties like attendance.
Ultimately, countries that successfully equip teachers with intuitive smart glasses should expect their global education rank to skyrocket.
Leaders including Finland and South Korea have lapped the field in terms of classroom innovation. Their ability to rethink learning has reflected positively on how prepared their workforce is for a demanding job market.
Vuzix believes there is no limit to who can benefit from smart glass adoption. Already, the warehousing industry has streamlined several processes using the technology.
The world of education is populated by innovators who’re deeply invested in their students. In time, Vuzix smart glasses will give them superpowers.
