Head of IoT at Webbylab

With a robust academic background in Telecommunication Systems Engineering, I apply my knowledge to lead innovations in the IoT domain. Starting as the first team member in the newly formed IoT department at WebbyLab, I've spearheaded its growth, fostering the expansion into embedded and hardware development alongside our core software projects. My dedication lies in pushing the boundaries of IoT technology, fostering a culture of innovation and excellence that profoundly impacts our clients' operational success.

FAQ
What are the possible areas of use of IoT in education?

The key elements of a smart education system using IoT could be the following: student attendance monitoring, special education, e-learning, elements of safety, applications for connecting per-to-peer professionals, evolving methodologies, tools for improved resource management, robotic learning decisions, and many others. You may order a custom solution, which allows you to eliminate unnecessary features and focus on exactly what you need.

Which challenges can IoT solve in education?

The Internet of Things in education can help in finding a successful response to the challenges of growing competition and financial stability. Benefits of IoT in the education sector are obvious. Schools will benefit from reduced operating costs and enhanced energy efficiency using the Internet of Things. IoT solutions lay the groundwork not only for more efficient school management but also for better experience for all participants in the learning process, both for teachers and students. You can improve attendance statistics, help scholars get better results on assessments, enhance their safety in campuses, offer broader opportunities for remote students or children with disabilities, and much more.

How is IoT beneficial in making a smart classroom?

For example, an interactive smart whiteboard allows a teacher and students to collaborate on the same document and share it with the entire class in real-time (but is far from limited to this). Small robots give an opportunity to explore complex STEM topics playfully, while digital pen enables converting any type of handwritten communication into electronic files instantaneously, just by writing on special digital paper or directly on a selected computer screen. You can build a smart system that will collect data through sensors and remotely control lighting, locks, and heating systems in the classrooms.

What to consider when implementing IoT in education?

Even though many colleges and universities are interested in using IoT to support student learning, some difficulties become a barrier to the widespread adoption of its tools. High implementation costs, privacy, security challenges, or inappropriate infrastructure for storing and processing data are among them. You should properly follow all security policies to protect data and not save on protective measures and contingency plans for the event of cyber threats. Use only trusted solution providers who apply only best practices and the latest security technologies for their products. Don’t forget to ensure using a reliable computing platform and cloud-based storage system. You also should take into account such factors as regulations in the local area of implementation, user experience features and opportunities for future scaling of the project.
