Internet of Things – Integrating with the World Around You
Wednesday, May 31
Ever wonder what the Internet of Things is all about? Are you interested in learning about automating common tasks or using various sensors to trigger specific events? Then this is the session for you!
During this TLTC Summer Series event we will:
- Start by defining the Internet of Things (and the Internet of Everything)
- Discuss a couple of real-world examples of the Internet of Things at both the corporate / industrial and the home scale
- Examine custom-build versus commercially available Internet of Things devices
- Set up a common Internet of Things device designed for home-use
- Create an IFTTT (If This Then That) recipe to trigger an action based on an event (for example, blinking a light when you receive a text message)
- Create a Microsoft Flow that automates a process (for example, automatically downloading email attachments to OneDrive for Business)

Games can be used to create meaningful learning experiences, motivate learners, and provide a space for practice and iteration (permission to fail.) In this workshop, you will get practical advice and hands on experience with simple and serious games for learning. We will also play several examples of games, discussing which elements provide the most benefit for classroom use.
