SOLL platform and its perceived usefulness and ease

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The Internet of Things (IoT) appears with great educational potential, as it is a network composed of various objects and devices connected to the Internet, allowing the performance of interdisciplinary activities. Thus, it presents the SOLL platform: Smart Objects Linked to Learning, which, supported by a set of technologies that collect and store data from a greenhouse, allows dynamic, interactive and interdisciplinary learning and a synchronous or asynchronous evaluation. In this article, the platform architecture is exposed and, using a mixed methodology, student questionnaires and interviews with focus groups of teachers, the data obtained show that both teachers and students recognize perceived usefulness and ease on the platform, at least that it responds to the structure of the learning community, adopting a different learning model, with exploration and enrichment of educational information.
