How Connected 'Things' can Impact Education
Who saw it coming—a revolution sparked by the Internet of Things (IoT) redefined the way education industry operates, experiencing a seismic shift. Emphasizing on the fact that IoT will soon be called the Internet of Everything (IoE), Gartner predicts that by the year 2020, more than 50 billion connected devices will be on the Internet. The adoption of IoT has caused a major disruption in a variety of fields. Along that line, schools have also become part of this evolution.

With this rising predominance of web services in the present dynamic tech era, personalized learning is gaining more importance and is the topmost buzzwords in the sector. Gone are the days of having to attend the traditional, boring training courses in the corporate field, hassled with expressing novel ideas to the higher authorities where communication was at stake. Digital highlighters and interactive boards are some of the advanced devices that are used in the field of education, with the wide adoption of IoT. The interactive boards facilitate the information sharing and the flow of it. Additionally, the learning experience is being enhanced by transferring the data digitally to smartphones. Henceforth, these devices make it possible for students sitting in their classrooms to interact with mentors, educators, and peers across the world.
IoT helps schools to focus more on teaching by minimizing the manual intervention. In an instance, connected devices that inevitably spot the presence of students in the school can remove the need for taking attendance manually and submitting the information at a central office, among other time-consuming activities.
