In the past, a lot of educators have focused on things like energy efficiencies throughout schools and campuses when talking about IoT. Those are great benefits, but I think there are far better ones.
For instance, the IoT can allow a student’s teacher to share his or her test results with their other teachers and parents in real-time, alerting them to potential issues they may wish to face in their own classroom or home. It can automatically track when homework has been completed—what time it’s being completed—and even collect data about how long it takes the student to finish the assignment. With that information, teachers can gain a better understanding of whether their methods are working, whether assignments may be too cumbersome, or if students seem to be working too late into the night. This is valuable information that could make future digital transformation trends in education even greater! And it could help bring peace to homework time in student homes just as it brings greater insights to the classroom.
