The future of education

The Internet of Things can enable schools to embrace digital transformation, empowering things like: remote learning, unlimited data storage, smart boards, digital attendance systems, improved safeguarding, greater accessibility, VR and gaming, tablet and mobile learning, and enhanced security.

While all these aspects can enable better learning and improve educational outcomes, the Internet of Things can also enable schools to treat every pupil as an individual. As we know, every person learns differently. IoT, however, allows for targeted learning and examinations that cater to individual preferences, resulting in a much fairer education system.

This, in turn with the use of more interactive styles of teaching, is likely to boost engagement both in and outside of the classroom. Traditional teaching methods have always been inaccessible for certain pupils, and this often has nothing to do with their academic abilities. With IoT in education, however, every child will be empowered to achieve their full potential.
