The study explores an instructional experience at the tactical level. Basically how does the teacher deploy tactics to realize a particular instructional strategy. With the advent of wearable technology we had the opportunity to see what the teachers sees in delivering the lesson. Each teacher wore Google Glass while they are delivering their lessons. The recordings were uploaded to YouTube. YouTube has a variety of features that allow both for creating of a transcript as well as captioning. We opted for the captioning feature which created a rudimentary draft copy which we edited in order to provide a more precise rendering. The results indicated that the structure of an instructional event at the tactical level was important in creating and maintaining the instructional experience.
