In Belgium the ministry of education has adapted the way students, of technical oriented schools, are evaluated. In fact students are getting more autonomy on when they spend time on a specific course. Courses are split into fix "teaching in a classroom" and flex "working on a course as part of a project" times. Therefore there is a need for technology that underpins this new approach providing the following features:
We implemented IoT boards with RFID readers at the school gate with open/close steering of the gate and a generic badging node at the secretariat. For the student courses timings we implemented IoT boards with a TFT screen connected so that, based on the student classgroup, courses show up for selection. The fixed classrooms have IoT boards without a TFT since only one course can be teached in there. All this data is send to our cloud based application server where we offer different functionalities as shown below.
