IT Innovation Lab in Secondary Schools
IoT and drone technology are becoming more significant in the modern information age. INSPIRE ®Education launches IoT programming and drone technology education package for the 'IT Innovation Lab in Secondary Schools' programme 2020/21- 2022/23 to equip students with the latest knowledge of information technology.
About IT Innovation Lab
SThe OGCIO implements the “IT Innovation Lab in Secondary Schools” (IT Innovation Lab) initiative under the existing “Enriched IT Programme in Secondary Schools” (EITP) to provide funding support of up to $1 million in the three school years from 2020/21 to 2022/23 for each publicly funded secondary school to upgrade their IT equipment and facilities and organise IT-related activities.
IT Innovation Lab solution by INSPIRE ® Education
INSPIRE ® Education team launches IoT(Internet of Things) and drone programming education packages tailored for IT Innovation Lab in Secondary Schools. Our packages includes: customized programs for beginners to advanced learners and necessary education equipment (MODI IoT system, Programmable drones) for IT Innovation Lab scheme.
INSPIRE Education elite introduced MODI-IoT System, which let teachers and students to experience IoT technology conveniently and easily. The modular design of MODI IoT system make students build their own system by simply adding sensors and control modules in the system. Students can use it to design smart aquariums, automatic watering systems, lighting systems, and other smart IoT systems that are suitable for different scenarios.
Programming, Aerial Filming & 3D Mapping
In recent years, drone technology has become widely used around the world, from recreational applications, professional photography to geographical surveying. INSPIRE Education elite provides a series of courses on using this technology, including aerial photography production, 3D mapping and surveying, and drone programming courses. Students can deepen their understanding of this potentially unlimited technology through experience learning. during the class.
The concept of IoT (Internet of Things) originated from the 1980s in the early days of the Internet development in the last century. The Internet is like a net that connects computers to computers. With the advancement of information technology, people begin to connect things other than computers to the Internet. The Internet of Things, the concept of connecting objects and objects into a network, came into being. Objects collect data through sensors and network devices, communicate with each other, use resources more effectively according to usage needs, and bring convenience to life.
The Internet of Things programming course allows students to use their creativity to design smart furniture/campus systems and make them aware of the latest information technology/Internet of things technology. Colleagues hope to cultivate students' interest in system design and programming.
The MODI IOT IoT system introduced by the INSPIRE team can provide teachers and students with the most convenient and smooth IoT learning experience. The modular design of the MODI IoT system can add and subtract various sensors and control modules in response to learning themes to design smart aquariums, automatic irrigation systems, lighting systems, and other smart IoT systems suitable for homes and schools.
The MODI IoT system is designed with modularity, and its advantages are as follows:
Different sensors and control modules can be added according to learning topics, and block-based programming and advanced programming language Python are also supported. It can be used for introductory and advanced IoT programming teaching just by using the same IoT system.
Its plug-and-play design can reduce hardware connection problems, allowing students to focus on the design and programming of the IoT system.
Drone technology-programming, aerial photography, 3D geomorphology scanning
UAV technology has become more and more widely used in recent years, from recreational applications, professional photography, to landform surveys, and even cargo delivery , traces of UAVs can be seen . The INSPIRE team provides a series of drone-related courses, such as aerial photography courses, 3D terrain scanning, and drone programming courses, so that students can deepen their understanding of this potentially unlimited technology through experience learning.
INSPIRE's UAV programming course uses DJI's Tello EDU UAV. Students can use the Tello EDU application to perform block-based programming. In addition, students can also use more advanced software such as Swift Playground and Python to program multiple sensors and components of Tello EDU, and even design programs that allow multi-units to fly. In the course, students instruct drones to perform a series of problem-solving tasks, learning programming becomes lively and interesting.
