As one of the key trends affecting education today, the Internet of Things (IoT) is playing a bigger role in schools everyday.What exactly is the Internet of Things? It can be complex if you look at the technical side of it, but Forbes offers a rather clear-cut explanation: “Simply put, this is the concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other).“This includes everything from cellphones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, wearable devices and almost anything else you can think of.”With the advancement and increasing speed of broadband networks and WiFi, the IoT is fast becoming a reality as smart cities, homes and buildings become more connected.
