Anne Gläsel is Editor of The EdTech World, the Medium outlet run by Setapp, our newest media partner.

Here, guest writer Christian Golden, PhD, offers a brief overview of the potential benefits, and challenges, that might arise from an attempt to incorporate the IoT into the environments in which we learn.
