SCOPE

The IEEE IoT Community defines the IoT as: “… a self-configuring and adaptive system consisting of networks of sensors and smart objects whose purpose is to interconnect “all” things, including every day and industrial objects, in such a way as to make them intelligent, programmable and more capable of interacting with humans’’. According to information technology researcher Gartner, there are more than 6.4 billion devices connected to the Internet excluding tablets, cellphones and computers. That number is projected to hit 20.8 billion devices by 2020, as everything from a coffee maker to a kid toy is hooked up. The goal of this special session is to explore how IoTs can be applied in the field of education.

TOPICS:
- Current and future trends in applying IoTs in the field of education
- Security, privacy and trust in IoT
- IoT system design methodologies in the field of education
- Big data processing in IoT systems
- Educators and learners in the loop in IoT systems
- Standards for IoT applications
- Architectural Frameworks, patterns for IoTs applications
- Experiments, Assessments of applying IoTs in the field of education
- IoTs and Online learning, m-learning, u-learning
- Performance evaluation of IoTs
