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.
