IoT (Internet of Things) exchanges and compiles a range of information connecting a network of various devices like electronics, software, and network connectivity. It becomes the imminent technology in the fast-changing world of education. It leverages the maximum potential of the education sector by integrating rapidly changing technology into existing technology. IoT provides digitized education by facilitating core competent IoT technology. Sooner academic institutions can access more IoT-enabled devices than smartphones.
Assisting Special Need Children
IoT plays a major role in connecting devices and can make a smart grid of embedded devices. IoT gives a nice interface where physically disabled children can interact and involve in active discussions in a class with the help of a mobile device. IoT will enable the refined user interface that can assess the individual physical limitation. This will further help them to develop learning and writing skills step by step. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is the key component of IoT (1) where it helps visually disabled children to track the location and they can easily access all the amenities provided in the schools.
The concept of smart classrooms can be possible with the help of MQQT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport). (2) It is the most suited connectivity protocol for IoT. It refines the accurate data by filtering only the requested data and eliminating the need of ambiguous data. The speech is incorporated into ALEXA by the Wi-Fi mode of communication. Various types of sensors and actuators control humidity, light, and temperature by remotely and automatically turning on and off the electrical appliances. It becomes the facilitator of energy conversion and automation by eliminating traditional architectural practices and providing a friendly interface for every type of user.
Safety and Security in Schools
Security becomes the top-notch problem for academic institutes. The major concerning areas are vaping, smoking, noises, disturbances, bullying, theft and cyberbullying. (3) Out-of-suspension compels administrative personnel to do additional oversight, counseling, augmenting criminal justice costs, parents meeting, and many more. Institutions employ a variety of tools to monitor their security procedures. IoT integrates CCTV cameras, HVAC systems, and sensors to give a seamless experience of security measures. It fulfills the expectations and goals of all the important users in academia like students, teachers, parents, SPOC (Single point of contact), and vehicles by providing the seamless experience of communication. It also facilitates crisis management, staff training and intervention strategies fostering a safe place for students in institutions.
IoT: Facilitating a safe gateway for students
Future Career Prospects of IoT
Many universities are focusing on IoT based courses and it gives a diverse set of career opportunities. Business Intelligence (BI) gives the fine picture of corporate data by combining software tools, software applications, and data from internal and external sources. The onset of IP-enabled devices has increased cybersecurity threats. Thus expert IoT personnel are in high demand to give a safe interface of data security. Application design needs various systems and tools to deliver outstanding graphics quality. In the future, the industry needs those designers that can implement various graphics tools in one format by assisting IoT and transform the layout of company products. Mobile technology is transforming generation after generation. The industry needs those personnel that can implement AR, VR, cloud computing, wireless technologies and mobile technologies on mobile applications.
IoT can furnish latency, competent bandwidth and incomparable security to various educational infrastructure. IoT is globalizing education by facilitating the latest trends in technology and providing a seamless interface of accessibility, efficiency, and security.
