The nonprofit has been selected as one of five winners of Google’s Giving through Glass Challenge, an open call for U.S. nonprofits to share how they’d use Google Glass technology to make a positive impact.

Lisa Monarski is a senior manager at Deloitte and a member of the board of directors of Classroom Champions. She joined Melissa Ross to discuss how they will be using Google Glass in this week's Tech Tuesday segment.
