Wireless sensors generate data often "big data"which can be stored and analyzed either on site or in the cloud. The range of smart IoT devices found in schools today includes e-books and tablets; sensors in hallways, entrances, classroom spaces, and campus vehicles; all sorts of fitness bands and wearables; virtual and augmented reality headsets; robots; video sensors; and smart displays, lights, and locks.
Data from these devices can be used for simple tracking e.
Data can also be used for control. For example, the IoT provides the means to finely tune HVAC systems to keep all rooms throughout the campus optimally comfortable at minimum expense. Airflow, air quality, temperature, humidity, and lighting can be constantly optimized in every space that can conceivably be used for learning.
Finally, flexible displays provide the important benefit of easily presenting data and status information on classroom screens or personal devices like smartphones and laptops. Modular dashboards and point-and-click control software e.
All of these IoT examples can ultimately enhance the learning experience for students and teachers, offering improved engagement and collaboration. I think we will see three categories of smart IoT-based breakthrough devices for the campus: The latter two in particular augur a new level of personalized learning.
The adaptive learning devices can track how well individual students understand course content and can provide new content or offer supplemental teaching in various forms including video, text, experiments, or even virtual field trips. What quantity of IoT devices would you anticipate having to support for the average student?
The number of different types of devices per student can be upward of five to ten. Starting with the smartphone, fitness tracker, tablet, laptop, and game device and adding jewelry like Ringly or Pebblenonportable devices like smart TVs, Wi-Fi lightbulbs, and Wi-Fi speakers for campus rooms, other small smart appliances, and a head-mounted display results in more than ten.
What are the most exciting academic and administrative benefits enabled by the IoT for higher education? One of the major academic benefits the IoT brings to higher education is a dramatically improved, higher-quality remote presence.
Students who are unable to be physically present in the classroom can still experience the images, the sounds, and even the smells of the room. Similarly, students no longer must be physically present in a laboratory to run science experiments.
IoT devices such as TetraScience connect experiments and instruments to the Internet for control and monitoring from anywhere. PocketLab and Lab4U attach to smartphones to provide powerful, but still low-cost science lab instruments capable of measuring acceleration, force, angular velocity, magnetic field, pressure, altitude, and temperature.
Combine these sensors with robotics and controllers, and online students are able to run, monitor, and directly participate in science experiments of all types.To mark the occasion of publishing the magazine's 1,th article, the Our World team reflects on achievements and shares its thanks.
We don’t need to tell you that our world is changing rapidly. People are innovating and finding solutions all the time. We set out to analyze and report on these solutions so as to inspire learning.
