#ECOOchat: The Internet of Things and Education

As we see more and more things connected to the Internet, you just know that it’s only a matter of time until things in your classroom will be connected.  Last year, at an OSSTF Professional Learning session, Ramona Meharg led a workshop and conversation about the Internet of Things.  We approached her and she agreed to lead an #ECOOChat and get us envisioning what IoT means to the classroom.

I invite educators everywhere to unleash your inner futurist and share your thoughts/concerns about an IoT classroom in your future.


Join Ramona Meharg (@RamonaMeharg) and members of the ECOO Board of Directors on Wednesday, April 4th 8:00 pm for an #ECOOchat on Twitter.

We’re going to be discussing the developing role of “The Internet of Things” (#IoT) and Education.

Questions in line for discussion include:

  • Q1: What Internet-connected Things have you seen arrive in your school/classrooms over the years?
  • Q2: What Thing or task would you like to connect to the Internet or automate in your school/classroom?
  • Q3: Is there something in your school/classroom that you think should be disconnected from the internet or never connected?
  • Q4: How do you see #IoT improving your pedagogy? How do you see yourself leveraging #IoT (reporting, assessment, attendance, productivity, curriculum)?
  • Q5: How might #IoT impact student engagement/productivity/performance?
  • Q6: How might #IoT be used for Home/School/Community Communications?
  • Q7: What are some dangers/concerns that come with using #IoT in schools?

Please plan to join us and share the message so that others can join the fun and learning.
