Creating Learning Opportunities with Internet of Things (IoT)



Have you ever wondered how information from physical phenomena around you can be recorded to reveal insightful data patterns? This series of three workshops will teach you how to do that through the application of Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Inquiry-based learning in STEM and STEAM curriculums based on authentic learning environments is a growing trend in schools.

Main Objectives
Each of these workshops will familiarise student teachers with IoT technology through the play of different sensors available in the IoT@NIE Learning Lab and equip them with the knowledge and skills they can apply to their own projects and classroom teaching as an approach for Inquiry-based pedagogy.
Note to participants
You can register for your preferred time on a first come first serve basis. Each run is limited to 20 participants. Successful candidates will be notified. Thank you. Please bring your laptop for your session.
Prerequisites
No prior knowledge required.

PROGRAM

IoT Workshop 1: Using Google Science Journal and PocketLab for Datalogging
 
Students will learn
- identifying the affordances of Google Science Journal and Pocketlab as dataloggers in conducting experiments of a physical phenomenon such as movement, sound and light.
- how to design an experiment using Google Science Journal and Pocketlab.

Google Science Journal is a free mobile app that enables the sensors on the handphone to collect data in real-time. Pocketlab is a portable hand-held device that can be paired with an app on a mobile device to record environmental data.
