Digital Innovation for Making Visual Connections in Virtual Classrooms

eGlass brings digital innovation to the classic chalkboard by harnessing the power of technology to allow teachers to write important information on a pane of glass while still maintaining valuable visual connection in virtual and physical classrooms. Featuring a web-integrated lightboard and foldout camera, eGlass allows students to clearly see the teacher through a transparent writing surface at the same time they are viewing important, written content through automatic image mirroring, so nothing appears backward to students.

Math teachers have successfully used eGlass for virtual instruction. Because teaching math involves explaining deep concepts in a visual way, math teachers can view students’ expressions to see if they are getting it and can adjust on the spot if necessary. Every student gets an equitable learning opportunity, seeing the teacher’s face and glowing writing, whether they are in the front row, back of the class, or learning remotely.

This innovative digital teaching tool is the result of a partnership between a physics professor at San Diego State University, who invented a product called Learning Glass, and the CEO of the educational technology firm Pathway Innovations.
