‘’If you think that the internet has changed your life, think again. The IoT is about to change it all over again!’’
The Internet of Things, the connection of devices (other than standard products such as computers and smartphones) to the Internet, is in the process of transforming numerous areas of our everyday lives.
And education is another sector which is constantly transforming.
Creating and evolving – The IoT indeed promotes and paves the way for creativity – and for children, there’s nothing better than learning the nuances and applications of hyperconnectivity firsthand.
After all the predictions regarding the enormous number of connected communication and decision-making devices in the years to come, this is an excellent opportunity for schoolchildren to understand, build, and control such systems themselves
Safety is a priority – Safety has always been the foremost priority of parents for their children. Data on the last-known locations are stored on a server which ensures that every area on campus is accessed only by the right people. The cards and wristbands also act as digital wallets and enable cashless payments. School buses are also enabled with GPS tracking, which makes the journey to and from school safer and lets parents know their child’s whereabouts.
Global networking – Students can now interact with peers, mentors, and educators worldwide using connected devices such as digital highlighters and interactive boards while sitting in the comfort of their home or classroom. Digital scanners aid the learning experience by digitally transferring text to smartphones. Similarly, interactive boards simplify and accelerate learning by receiving, acknowledging and reciprocating information.
