Integrating do-it-yourself technology (DIY) into the virtual learning environment

A session at Emerging Learning Design Conference 2011

  • Rick Anderson

Friday 3rd June, 2011

11:00am to 11:50am (EST)

As virtual technologies have embraced connecting to the web, and social media, so too has DIY electronics, and physical computing. Arduino has revolutionized the DIY physical computing movement which has allowed for low cost integration of devices like motors, GPS devices, accelerometers, temperature, and motion monitoring with virtual environments. This session will demonstrate integrating these devices, and the hacked Microsoft Kinect with virtual environments like Open Sim, as well as adding virtual devices to a web based network of things via Pachube, http://www.pachube.com. Lessons learned will be shared with particular attention on how to avoid DYI (do-yourself-in)
