February 17, 2023

In the fast-paced world of education, technology continues to play a pivotal role in transforming traditional teaching methods. At S3 Technologies, we firmly believe that technology is a powerful tool for educators, enabling them to foster a learning environment that promotes increased student ownership, sharp focus on content and concepts, and higher-order thinking. Among the latest innovations is eGlass, an illuminated glass whiteboard with cutting-edge features that promise to revolutionize the classroom experience. 

In this article, we will explore the benefits and diverse applications of eGlass in the modern classroom.

What is the eGlass?

eGlass is an illuminated glass whiteboard with a built-in camera that captures your face and writing all within the same frame. Record lessons, take Snapshots, and so much more! eGlass allows you to pull any media onscreen to interact with. It will also automatically remove the background from your content, allowing you to see your students while writing.

Classroom Applications of eGlass

Screen Recording

Record your mini-lesson using the eGlass. This will allow you to circulate the room while it plays to help with individual student needs, instead of being tied to a whiteboard at the front of the room. You can also record a full lesson to share with students who might be learning from home.

Student Demonstrations

Allow students to teach parts of the lesson or demonstrate how they find answers to different problems. You could also record the student demo to share with their parents!

Onscreen Presentations

Do you have different forms of media you use to teach certain skills? Pullany content onto eGlass and the background will be removed so the students can still see your face behind what you are presenting!

Virtual Meetings

eGlass works with Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and other virtual meeting platforms. Instead of using the default camera on your computer, you will select “eGlass Fusion” as your camera input. This will allow anyone at the meeting to see your board and face!

Math Manipulatives

Drag icons onto the screen, draw on them, write on them, move them, or color them! This will help with classrooms that do not have multiple sets of manipulatives.

Paragraph & Sentence Editing

Pull your sentence or paragraph examples onto the eGlass and allow students to make edits to them. As students engage in the editing process together, discussions and debates about language choices and grammar rules become an integral part of the learning experience, fostering an environment where critical thinking is key.

Labeling Diagrams

Pull blank models onto the eGlass to allow students to label different parts. Things like organs, parts of a cell, and layers of the Earth are just a few ideas you can use to increase student engagement with the content.

How Does it Work?

eGlass has a camera that captures the writing and the teacher’s face and flips the image, so it is readable to the students sitting on the other side of the board. eGlass connects to the computer via a USB cable. eGlass comes with Neon markers that light up when the board is turned on, however, you could also use regular whiteboard markers!

eGlass Lessons

eGlass offers Math lessons for K-12 students, using the MathReps templates. MathReps templates have been digitized specifically for eGlass and allow instructors to engage students during math lessons. s. Each grade level comes with templates that are \ aligned with standards. The templates have been not only optimized for eGlass, but also for student computers. This allows students to follow along with their teacher on their own devices. Student work can be submitted to the teacher, so they can use the data for formative assessments..
