5 iBeaconi n e d u c a t i o n
iBeacon technology is transforming the way we share
information in the classroom. iPads with beacon apps
installed are becoming aware of what is nearby, so that they
can display and share data that is relevant to that time and
place. iBeacon technology is simple but very clever, and
above all...it just works!
Here are 5 easy ways you can use it....
1You can turn a teacher’s iPad into a beacon, and with just
one tap you can instantly transmit content from their iPad to
any other iPad that is nearby with the same app. You can
share text, videos, photos, audio, widgets, pdf ﬁles, iTunes U
courses, as well as link to websites and even open other
2Place beacons around your classroom or school to
create learning zones and/or information points.
Students move around with their iPads to engage and
learn from content in the beacon app. It is possible to
place multiple projects on the same beacons and the
range can be set at between 10 cm and 70 metres,
inside or outside.
3Use real-time polls, treasure hunt cards and widgets to get
students interacting with their environment, and challenge
them in a real-world scenarios.
4Send instant notiﬁcations to student’s devices when nearby a
beacon - even when their device is in their school bag.
You can also send notiﬁcations to parent’s devices at any
time so they’re just one swipe away from the latest news and
important information for their child.
Why stay in the classroom when you can get out and
about and place beacons both around your school and at
places you visit regularly like museums and galleries.
