Abstract

Smart Objects are computationally enhanced versions of everyday objects such as shoes, coffee makers, pens, and more. They have the capacity to process information, sense and act on their environment and interconnect with each other and the Internet, creating an Internet of Things (IoT). IoT and Smart Objects technologies have been adopted in industries such as transportation and healthcare, however few implementations exist in the educational domain. This article presents a survey of Smart Objects applications in learning environments and explores the opportunities that exist in this domain and the main challenges that hinder the adoption of IoT in education.
