Toward the Next Generation of Educational Technologies: A Survey of Internet of Things (IoT) in Education

Abstract

Internet of things (IoT) means that physical objects (e.g., device) will be connected to the Internet and be able to interact themselves to other objects. The Internet of things has competitive advantages such as content delivery, automation processing, location independence, security assurance and time reduction, thus IoT applications have received extensive attention from both industry and academia in recent years. Due to the rapid development of educational technology, IoT is being increasingly used in education. Learners’ data can be automatically retrieved from device /sensors and maintained through using the cloud infrastructure. The main IoT companies such as Cisco, Microsoft start to use IoT in the learning environment; the connecting technologies are widely applied in the diverse educational application. In this paper, a survey of the different educational IoT applications is presented. This paper is a survey more specific to how ubiquitous connectedness can transform Pedagogy.
