Abstract

This research describes the opportunities and challenges of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the education sector. This research applies to library research. The analysis shows that the use of IoT aims to improve education quality and efficiency. In this case, several applications of IoT in education are Smart Classrooms, E-Learning, Personalization of Learning, Digital Libraries, Security Systems, Student Health Monitoring, Student Attendance Systems, Interactive Whiteboards, Database Management, Management of Alumni Data, and Blended Learning. There are several opportunities for IoT in education, including the improvement of communication, collaboration, class engagement, students’ comprehension, resource management, safety and security, teaching efficiency, administrative efficiency, and parental involvement. Besides, easy accessibility to resources, cost efficiency, real-time usage and updates, and remote monitoring, and increasing. During the implementation, the challenges in using IoT in education are 1) the high price to implement IoT technology because of the large amount of hardware and software required. 2) skilled technical team to ensure the effective implementation of the IoT system. 3) security and safety issues to various cyber risks and threats. 3) inadequate internet access for IoT devices, especially low-income rural households that cannot afford an internet connection. 4) blue light. Since most IoT devices require users to be exposed to a blue screen, overexposure caused by long-term use is detrimental to students' healthy development of eyesight. The solutions to overcome these challenges are: 1) increasing the understanding and competence of human resources. Supporting the IoT requires the readiness, skills, competence, and willingness of available human resources. 2) Planning for the implementation of the IoT. IoT schools/institutions must carry out careful planning related. 3) Budget allocation must be prepared. In the future, innovations will emerge in education that function to support and improve the quality of education what is called Cyber Schools, including Smart School Offices, Smart School Transportation, Smart School Building Management, Smart Student Health, Smart Classrooms, Smart Labs, Smart Cafeteria, Student Activity Tracking, and many more.
