MetEd » Home11 class activities with sensors you didn’t know your phone hadMobile devices can do more than we imagine! Rebecca and Chrystian Vieyra developed apps for classrooms to tap into their sensors. (Google Hangout screenshot) Smartphones and tablets are powerful devices that people use every day to make their lives easier. They’re even smarter than we give them credit for. For example, many devices have: an accelerometer that measures acceleration forcesa magnetometer that measures magnetization/magnetic fieldsa light sensor that measures the strength of lighta gyroscope that measures orientationa hygrometer that measures moisture in the atmospherea thermometer that measures ambient temperaturea barometer that measures atmospheric pressurea proximeter that detects when something is close Try to put a series of instruments together like that in your classroom and the price tag will make it next to impossible. That’s where Rebecca Vieyra and her husband, Chrystian, come in. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. This wasn’t the end of the conversation! Related
