About the Project
Connected objects, due to their lower cost and ubiquity, represent an interesting educational tool. Despite their limited capacities in terms of network connectivity and computing power, they can be used to implement educational activities combining individual and collaborative learning.
The BBC Microbit is a microcontroller with a radio module for data transfer but without Internet connectivity. However, it is possible to integrate it into an Internet of Things network thanks to the industrial protocol MQTT and the WebSockets transport.
The project proposes to make it possible to exchange MQTT data with a cluster of Microbits radios and to connect this data with a 3D visualization, in order to carry out one or more collaborative educational activities.
