This paper provides an overview of the findings from an evaluation of the role of Google Glass in education over the past three years. The authors have experimented with Optical Head Mounted Displays as a support tool for various learning activities over the past few years. The study described in the paper commenced back in 2014 and continued despite the fact that the development of the Google Glass technology was paused and then shifted towards enterprise clientele. This was a result of our confidence that the future of learning interfaces is aligned to the proliferation of augmented reality and the fact that the Google Glass interface offers an ideal tool for learners due to its light structure and seamless wearing experience. The paper discusses how Google Glass has been used for a range of learning activities and describes the learners’ experiences from using the device. The main contribution of the paper is in the form of measuring the success of the specific interface by sharing the results of three years of evaluations. The evaluation results are further analysed taking under consideration a number of profiling techniques of the learners involved including their personality type and learning style.
