Can we use sensors to measure what is affecting our climate and then visualize it using dashboards in our classrooms?
Climate change is affecting us all and many of our children and young people are deeply committed to finding solutions to the challenges they bring. Can we facilitate the teaching of how the climate works and make something concrete out of an issue that might otherwise be perceived as a bit abstract?
We test sensors that measure climate-influencing factors and then visualize them on a dashboard that can be used in teaching.
Through workshops, students and teachers at Västra Ramlösa and Gläntanskolan have learned more about what IoT (the Internet of Things) works and looked for ideas on what can be measured in that way. We are now collecting students 'feedback to see which data sources are interesting and what the students' thoughts on visualization look like.
