Exploiting Ubiquitous Computing, Mobile Computing and the Internet of Things to promote Science Education

Deliverables

UDOO-EDU kits

The deliverable is carried out in two phases. The first phase includes a set of 12 h/w kits that will be distributed to the partners for the design and testing of the solution. The kits will be accompanied with an initial version of the programming environment. The second phase includes the total amount of h/w kits that will cover the project needs. The kits will be accompanied with the final version of the programming environment. The programming environment will integrate the best practices related to open source components such as Scratch or App Inventor 2 to drive the students from block based programming to text based programming and interoperability with the network and smartphones in general.

Intermediate version of the system

Release of the 1st (intermediate) version of the platform with all the basic functionalities and services that will allow the use of the platform for educational purposes.

Foundation of an umbrella organisation

Acting as a coordinator in a European level to align and standardise activities and support further development.

Evaluation concept-framework and piloting

A report including quantitative and qualitative information in view of the establishment of a procedure to validate framework’s components.

Protocol for the establishment of collaborations and linking to the market

Defines the business model for the umbrella organisation and local branches

Report on dissemination activities and on UMI-Sci-Ed scientific exploitable results of the 1st period

This deliverable reports all the dissemination and outreach activities and includes project exploitable results and their managers at the conclusion during the 1st period of the project

Report on carried out preliminary activities

This deliverable reports all the preliminary activities carried out during the 1st year of the project such as the definition research sample, the schedule composition and the infrastructure specification

Report on design and development of UMI-Sci-Ed CoPs methodology

Describes the life cycle, structure, learning outcomes and research tools used for establishing CoPs in UMI-Sci-Ed learning networks in STEM settings for 14-16 youngsters.

Report on the validation of the educational material

Detailed description of the essential mechanisms for the validation of educational material and implementation in STEM disciplines using UMI technologies.
