Cynthia Johnston Turner
Associate Professor of Music, Cornell University
The speakers will share their experiences and research as beta-testers for Glass, Google's wearable technology. Jeremy has been using Glass in his multimedia skills classes, guiding 10 students as they experiment with new first-person video storytelling forms. He has been doing research on the experience and, while the work is in progress, he'll share some of the lessons learned from the early data. Cynthia and her team have been using Glass in conducting labs as well as in a variety of performance spaces. Their research has implications for how we give feedback and access learning, as well as how musicians make music and share with audiences.
