I remember Ross Halliday focusing on what might be deemed as ‘IoT for education’ at GTASyd. It is an interesting space. I can see the potential for it in education, but at what cost? For what impact? Here I am reminded of Marshall McLuhan’s tetrid:
- What does the medium enhance?
- What does the medium make obsolete?
- What does the medium retrieve that had been obsolesced earlier?
- What does the medium reverse or flip into when pushed to extremes?
I recently finished reading Ben Williamson’s book on Big Data in Education. Although not solely on this topic, definitely relates and worth reading.
