Co creating the Internet of Things with children: Towards Changing the Paradigm

Researches have showed that due to inadequate educational system, kids rapidly deteriorate their capacity of creative thinking. Therefore, schools need to develop projects that are more intuitively interactive, open source and smart. Helping schools to become more flexible and up-to-date with technologies, but informative about privacy and security, means helping kids to better understand the context of the environment in which they learn and live. Also, implementation of peer learning approach in education at schools means nurturing kids’ creativity in learning process.
