The New Way of Learning: How IoT Transforms the Education Sector

We are living in an era where the true potential of technology, like IoT, fully improves the lives of human beings. According to Statista, the installed base of IoT devices is forecast to grow to almost 31 billion worldwide, transforming the way we live, learn and work. Combined with education, we can drive greater positive social and technological changes for a better future.

In the traditional way, the heart of education has been limited to classrooms, conferences and online tutorials. With IoT, we can jump over boundaries, enhancing education in terms of quality and access. These are the ways of how IoT benefits education and learning.

Enhanced Textbooks

Learning isn’t only limited to textbooks and the Internet. Today, both students and teachers can go beyond traditional text and online world. For example, today’s textbooks mostly have QR codes that can be scanned in order to get the textbooks on our devices. Students can now easily download it and start reading it anywhere, anytime. Through the use of eBooks, one can carry more than hundreds of books with them on their mobile devices.

Connecting Students and Teachers Worldwide

With IoT, it is now possible for students to sit in their homes and interacting with educators and peers across the world and do a more engaging, personal interactions. For instance, whiteboarding and real-time communication tool. This collaboration allows teachers and students to participate in a learning session to work with each other for improving learning, communication, and collaboration. In this platform, teachers and students can choose from all available sketch shapes and screen share with the help of auto-generated unique URLs to communicate with other session members in real-time.

Smart Classrooms

IoT opens up a brand new possibility for tech-enabled classrooms can also change the way they operate. Using Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technology, the need for actual animals for dissection practice is now obviated, and students can experience the biggest events in the history of humanity as if they are truly a part of it. Wearable devices will determine when the class is too tired or disengaged and may need a break, and digital whiteboards will record all notes written during sessions.

Efficient Foreign Language Instruction

Supported by real-time feedback, immersion is of the most powerful mechanism for learning a foreign language. True, getting real-time feedback for foreign language practice can be done “for free” by interacting with foreigners. However, using connected devices, teachers are now able to determine whether students have made the correct statements or selections in foreign language simulation environments.

With reliable, secure and cost-effective connectivity like Telkomsel IoT Managed Service Connectivity, these IoT devices will provide the education sector significant improvements. Whatever our views on education may be, IoT will give a huge positive impact on this sector. It won’t be long before IoT enters Indonesia’s mainstream education system to prepare students to become tech-literate, harness data, and save money.
