Expectations regarding the use of new technologies in educational environments are increasing with to the development of technology. Many new applications that enhance communication and interaction have emerged in educational environments through the development of computer, internet and mobile technologies. In particular, the widespread use of augmented reality technologies in the areas of education is increasing and use of these technologies are getting easier. Augmented reality technologies are expected to contribute to experience-based learning in the learning environments. Wearable technologies as a widespread use of this technology will further increase the importance in the educational settings. Thus, it is important to recognition of these technologies by educators. Wearable augmented reality technologies may be various products such as hats, sunglasses, t-shirts, watches, shoes or accessories. In recent years, Google produced "Google Glass" technology and introduced. This technology considered as an educational wearable augmented reality technology. The Google Glass which looks like classical glasses has a technology of camera, system of reflecting, voice communication and using without hands. Also, it is movable that has increased reality technology using different scopes. Researches increasing to using Google Glass in education like some technologies. Some of the researches is academic researches that is continuing, some of them is occurring that the winner of the Google’s competition. The most known is Andrew Vanden Jeuvell, American physics teacher, went to CERN with supporting of Google and he showed his trip lively. Also, there are lots of incident of experience of the Googles’ competitions winner. Google Glass still is not selling in some shops. However, a lot of lecturer wants to try it. Due to this research, increased reality technology of Google Glass that still not sell in our country examine to the using in education. Researchers advised to the using in education.
