There’s been so much buzz about the Internet of Things (IoT) lately –
But first let’s understand what IoT is all about.
“The Internet of Things is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data.”
Thus for today’s students, the day will come when a computer is no longer seen as a separate object or device. With technology very much entwined in the basic fabric of everyday living, our children might feel offended if their obedient room lamp doesn’t immediately acknowledge their presence by switching itself on. The realm of education is no exception to the IoT’s influence. Until now, educational technology has pivoted more or less around virtual conferencing and classrooms, online tutorials, and similar offerings. However, this is only the beginning.
Here are five ways the IoT can transform education:
IoT helps in connecting academies all over the map. One such example would be the smart boards and even smarter boards.
IoT helps to Win over students and parents with a safe and secure learning environment. It ensures safety and security with the help of sensors, RFID’S, cameras and other connected devices.
IoT helps in Conserving and sustaining to survive and flourish i.e. schools can use IoT to support its energy monitoring and control program and reinvest the savings into its education programs.
Grant parity for all: IoT has a lot to offer students who need modified learning plans and exceptions. One such example is the Lechal shoe project, which enables the visually challenged to better navigate the world through technology.
Turn learners into creators: IoT is an excellent opportunity for schoolchildren to understand, build, and control such systems themselves thereby paving way for creativity.
Get ready folks for the all new digital century!!!!!!!
