  title={Supporting Inquiry-based Learning with Google Glass (GPIM)},
  author={{\'A}ngel Su{\'a}rez and Stefaan Ternier and Marco Kalz and Marcus Specht},
Wearable technology is a new genre of technology that is appearing to enhance learning in context. This manuscript introduces a Google Glass application to support Inquiry-based Learning (IBL). Applying Google Glass to IBL, we aim to transform the learning process into a more seamless, personal and meaningful learning experience. Google Glass aids users from a first person perspective with hands-free interaction. This paper first introduces the educational background and the framework behind…
