Can a car talk to a house? In the future, your car might tell your house that you are five miles away and please turn on the lights and warm up the house. We are connected 24/7. Connected devices and toys can be found in most homes, and have changed how many of us go about our daily lives and how children interact and play.
The Internet of Things (IoT) extends our connection beyond our phones. Many of us already control lights and music using voice activated technology but what else can we connect to better understand and interact with the world around us?
In the IOT of Things, using Micro:Bits, students will develop basic block coding skills and interact with the world around them using different inputs and outputs. They will learn about and explore simple cause and effect logic, like ‘If This – Then That (IFTT)’. Students will collect information and data to view and test the possibilities of IoT and explore how IoT is used in a range of industries such as agriculture, health and manufacturing.
Students will learn about the concept of IoT through the following themes:
- Smart Homes
- Agriculture and tech
- Environmental Monitoring
- Smart Cities
