    Over the past few years, the use of mobile personal devices has witnessed a widespread take-up. With wearable technology like head-up- displays a new genre of educational technology is appearing to enhance contextualized learning. This paper reports about a Google Glass prototype for Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL). With the use of Google Glass we aim to bring learning to the next level providing a more seamless experience where Glass supports the learning- and inquiry-process just in time and in an unobtrusive way. This demo paper introduces the design and functionalities of Google Glass for the Personal Inquiry Manager (GPIM). The paper concludes with open issues for future research, especially focused on evaluation and future development.
