Exploiting Ubiquitous Computing, Mobile Computing and the Internet of Things to promote STEM Education
Day 2 Friday 29/9/2017, Workshop code WS-10
Organiser: DAISSy Research Unit 3, Computer Technology Institute & Press “Diophantus”
Target Group: STEM teachers, high school (student ages between 14 and 16)
Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp), Mobile Computing (MobiCom) and the Internet of Things (IoT) as state of the art technologies (collectively mentioned as UMI) represent the most recent and explicit attempts to move computer technology beyond the confines of tool usage towards a pervasive penetration of everyday life. UMI technologies emerge both as educational means but most importantly as support mechanism for developing powerful careers in domains such as science education. This workshop will be based on the educational scenarios that have been developed in the context of H2020 project UMI-Sci-Ed. Participants will be given access to UDOO kits (an extended Arduino-based platform with peripherals) to implement the scenarios during the workshop.
