Translated title of the contribution: The innovative dimensions of the internet of things practice in education

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The Internet of Things (IoT) is based on a set of technologies that allows, from technological devices, such as sensors, to connect objects to the internet and from these to collect data from the analog world, in real time, enabling immediate actions or their storage for subsequent analysis and control. These dynamic scenarios can contribute to the enrichment of learning, evolving teaching to a model based on the development of skills, which requires students to perform more actively. Thus, it is intended to investigate the innovative dimensions of the practice of IoT in education, through the analysis of the application of the project SOLL – Smart Objects Linked to Learning, with students of the 3rd cycle, in an interdisciplinary approach to science. In this sense, using a mixed methodology, questionnaires to students and survey by interview, in focus group, to teachers, the data obtained show that, in general, this platform has an innovative dimension for education, as it promotes improvements in educational results, introduces new and/or improved products and services, such as new pedagogies or new combinations of pedagogies, including e-learning services and/or new ways of organizing activities.
