Research Revealed: Better Student Outcomes with the Learning Glass Project
Do teaching modalities matter when it comes to student outcomes? Dr. Matt Anderson says yes. He’s making his physics courses more effective with the Learning Glass, an innovative instructional technology that allows faculty to teach complex STEM problems on a see-through glass whiteboard. He’s done a side-by-side study comparing the efficacy of the Learning Glass vs. a document camera.
The result? More engaged students with Learning Glass technology, and better outcomes as well.
Join Dr. Anderson, physics professor and Learning Glass creator, for a live webinar where he’ll demonstrate his learning glass and share the results of his efficacy study. You’ll learn how:
- Students respond to identical content taught in two different environments
- To incorporate academic technologies like learning glass and video into your course design
- To make lectures more personal and innovative by adding technology
Dr. Anderson grew up in Palo Alto and San Diego. He received his BS at UCSD, PhD at U. of Oregon, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Rochester.
He joined the faculty at SDSU in 2000, and his research area is ultrafast laser physics. He has published 24 papers, received numerous research grants and teaching awards, and holds two patents. Recently he has become very interested in educational research, particularly with an eye towards new approaches to instruction.
Learning Glass was not his latest creation. He previously invented a toy called “StrobeFX” which he licensed to a toy company that sold over one million units.
He has been married for 20 years to his college sweetheart (a nursing instructor) and has three children ages 14, 12, and 5.
