Using Google Glass to enrich printed textbooks in a blended learning environment to meet digital natives’ expectations

Salamin, Anne-Dominique (University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (HES-SO Valais-Wallis))

A great number of professors create learning resources such as textbooks to teach their students. Today, these resources are mainly available in paper format or printed by students by accessing a distribution platform. Therefore these seem unsuited to “digital native” students, who represent a large group in universities. Such groups seek new insights to acquire knowledge, based on video, simulations, interaction with the covered topics. The aim of this article is to present how “digital native” students can improve their learning capacities and strengthen their motivation for learning, by intertwining new technological tools such a Google Glass and traditional textbooks.
