Gone are the days of a traditional high-cost, high-battery usage connectivity model – Wi-Fi to pads and computers. Innovative smart campus’ are accelerating their use of connected devices connected via long-range Bluetooth low energy, including phones, drones, robots, sensors, pads, and augmented reality tools. Moreover, the education experience is changing from information consumption to a student-centered, adaptive learning model designed to enhance student “agency” enabled by technology (Bjerede, 2017).
The outdated “virtual highway” is only one of many routes for students. Cassia Networks has assembled a Bluetooth IoT gateway at the center of the smart school experience, dramatically lowering costs, and providing bi-directional Bluetooth connectivity. The digital generation is coming of age in a hybrid of physical-virtual interactions where Bluetooth low energy connected devices fly, submerge, drive, and soon will be embedded into, ingested by, and bore into smart “things.”
