Leo Gaggi: Mobile sensors and the “Internet of Things” in learning
Mobile sensors and the “Internet of Things” in learning, by Leo Gaggl: "With the Internet of Things slowly becoming mainstream the potential uses of this technology can also be seen in the Education sector. This blogpost is the first installment of a series of posts that highlights practical examples that can be used in teaching and training. Environmental Noise Monitoring:Noise pollution has been a serious problem in many large cities all over the world and with the help of common mobile devices (smartphones) this can be easily measured, monitored and compared with a large quantity of samples from other cities/regions.
Some of the skills taught in these projects are:
- Environmental science
- Citizen science (collaborative data gathering)
- Measurement / sensing
- Data visualisation
- Data comparison
