A Smart School has a computational Internet of Things nervous system that keeps the facilities functioning smoothly and enables a higher level of personalized learning. Smart devices throughout the school and campus send data and receive instructions over the Wi-Fi network.
How it Works?
Wireless sensors generate data which can be stored and analyzed either on site or in the cloud. The range of smart devices found in schools today includes: eBooks and tablets; sensors in the hallways, entrances, classroom spaces, and buses; all sorts of fitness bands and wearables; virtual and augmented reality headsets; robots; video sensors; smart displays; smart lights; and smart locks, to name a few.
The growing streams of school and student-related data create the opportunity and the challenge to provide a more personalized student learning experience, while controlling costs. Learning from the patterns of highly successful students could benefit the entire student body.
What’s the Benefit?
IoT can substantially increase student engagement, provide a more personalized education, and create safer schools, all while generating savings by increasing operational efficiency.
IoT Events will be addressing some of these latest trends and how institutes are moving forward with it at its upcoming IoT, Big Data Education Summit happening this fall. You’ll hear from Superintendents, VPs, presidents and the like from school boards and universities across Canada as well as leading tech companies.
