DENVER - Could you imagine sitting in a class where your professor records every conversation and lesson with his glasses?

At the University of Colorado Denver School of Education and Human Development one professor is trying just that with his students.

Bud Talbot is interested in one thing regarding the new technology. Is Google Glass an effective tool in the classroom?

Google recently approved his proposal to use Google Glass while teaching and documenting the results. He is now known as one of the Glass Explorers: researchers inclined to investigate the use of innovative, wearable, modern technology in teaching and learning environments.

Every Friday between 12:30 p.m. to 2:10 p.m. Talbot will be testing the glasses by recording his conversations with students and lectures and analyzing the recordings.

He hopes to gain insight into his teaching style and whether Google Glass can help him become a better educator.

One thing he's noticed for sure is how much he moves his head.
