Dear Hannah: LEarning (Smart Schools (Internet Of Things)) (5-28-2019)

January 06, 2020

Dear Hannah,

It's not all about engineering with me.

‘Smart’ buildings merge environmentally responsible design with embedded (“hidden”) computing technology (powered by lots of sensors).

This podcast lesson introduces ‘smart’ buildings that rely on ‘The Internet Of Things’ (a massive Web of ‘connected’ personal devices and appliances).

It concludes by asking student teams to ‘unplug’ and use only their “Spidey senses” (an innate ability to sense problems, but an even stronger sense of how to solve them) to apply these ‘smart’ concepts to improving their schools’ culture, climate, and community.
