What Internet Of Things Can Do For LearningThe web connected people, now the internet of thingsVad Sakernas Internet Kan Göra För Lärande is about to do the same with the devices. This development we are just the very beginning of. It includes innovations like self-driving cars and wearables to improve exercise to mention two of many areas. But as wearables for physical training already is on the market. How can the internet of things be used for brain training, in other words for learning and skills development? Basically, the IoT has the potential to tear down traditional barriers in education. Such as economic status, geography, language, and physical location. Below follows four points that hopefully gives some ideas of the future of learning:

  • Smartboard in the classroom that distributes what is written to the students’ smartphone. And why not the other way around that the student can write on the smartboard from their smartphone. This could be especially interesting for live online lessons.
  • Students as creators were one of the trends in the Horizon Report 2018. IoT can boost this trend e.g. that learning by doing skills is very much required in a big data world. Where students need to learn to understand, build and control these systems.
  • Automation of administrative tasks that traditionally teachers have struggled with.
  • Interactive eBooks for learning that do much more than just digitalize the text of a printed book, including sensors for personalization and open qualitative feedback etc.
