IoT Workshop for American School in Japan Staff
For this half-day workshop, Make It Creative teamed up with a local IT and Education company, Sentree, to deliver a custom-made workshop to a group of 8 teachers at The American School in Japan.
Whilst the school already had a flagship IT / Robotics / Digital Fabrication curriculum, the teachers wanted to find out more about very recent developments in the world of Arduino-based IoT-connected systems.
MIC and Sentree took the participants through a process exploring the basics of IoT device programming, and introduced straightforward ways to create prototype IoT devices using the Intel Edison board, plug-and-play sensors and an iOS-based cloud platform.
The teachers will use this knowledge to create their own programs introducing IoT devices to students.
