It was supposed to be ambitious, but after another long weekend it is hard (still) to gather, so … it will be practically and about the future. No, I’m not trying to determine what it will look like, because it is not a simple task, and the number of threads that could be developed gives you a headache, in terms of their choice. To the point! Today will be about … the Internet! Not the one we know, but the one that is coming … about the “Internet of Things”.
The internet is evolving every day. Its beginning is a project of connections that, thanks to their dispersed infrastructure (without one base site), were to survive even nuclear strikes. The next stage is the 90s and the creation of the World Wide Web (by the way, a few days ago the 20th anniversary of its creation was celebrated), i.e. a graphical description of the site. From that moment, the resources could be viewed in a convenient and pleasing way. The range remained the problem, i.e. the number of people connected to the network (in the 90s they were mainly academic centers and companies), and the transmission speed (9600 bit/sec was a standard in Europe at that time). The beginning of 2000 is a rapid development of connection speeds and the end of the first decade of these years is a mobile expansion (de facto started with the release of the first iPhone by Apple and later the iPad). Internet is everywhere
Imagine a situation that without human intervention, our radiators, cars, shoes or meters will be equipped with systems that will communicate with the Internet. Let’s take a car. Immediately the thought associated with the location is imposed. This is already done by GPS, e.g. in-car navigation, but if the car will communicate with others and we add to it an application that will supervise the movement of cars and at the same time control the traffic lights, it can set its work so that the traffic takes place in the most optimal way. Without human intervention. What’s more, when it detects a defect, the car will send a signal to the workshop itself and even, synchronizing with the owner’s calendar, a free appointment will arrange for us in the workshop! Another example. The teacher introduces the task of reading the reading. The book, perhaps an e-book, is reporting information itself,
The world will certainly change and will continue to change. Is it in the direction desired by all? What about security issues and the anonymity of the individual? The Internet of Things brings many amenities and opens up new areas to use that we may not even think about today. One of them is even educational websites and special groups in social media, which are distinguished by a significant educational value. This is an important issue because we have access to information that will positively influence the methods and means used to conduct the classes or opt online Quran classes in USA. In this way, the objectives of the lesson can be achieved thanks to creative solutions and ideas that are foreign to relying only on a dry transfer of knowledge. Unfortunately, new ideas offered by educational sites are not enough. Individual approaches to each student should also be considered. Only then can the objectives of the lesson be successfully realized, despite the difficulties encountered.
Unfortunately, the internet also has a lot of threats. How it will be? Soon we have a chance to find out because the explosion of this kind of service is expected to be 2020-2025.
