BROWN SUMMIT, N.C. -- Students are helping test Google Glass at Brown Summit Middle School.

Curriculum Facilitator Anthony Woodyard is testing Google's latest technology with 6th, 7th and 8th graders during a 30-day trial at the school.

Thursday, students in Mrs. Crisco's sixth grade science class tested the glasses and discussed the pros and cons of the device, how they could be useful in school classrooms and what the social limitations could be.

They agreed Glass could be useful for research and presentations but weren't sure they'd actually wear them in public.

The school's debate team decided to take on Google Glass as their next topic.

Mr. Woodyard will have the option of buying the product for about $1,500 after they send feedback to Google. He doesn't think it's the right time to spend that much money on Google Glass but hopes they may one day be more affordable for classrooms.
