Sorry for the shameless plug in advance but hopefully this will be relevant to some of you... OCR and IBM are hosting a free event at The Manchester College's Openshaw campus on Thursday 28th January from 0930-1230. Developments in Cloud technology allow you and your students to experience this new world from your classroom. With just an Internet connection, a modern browser and access to IBM’s Bluemix, you can take your students on a journey where they can develop applications and work with data without them needing to become a programmer. You can use the same technology being used by industry today and teach your students industry relevant skills that are transferable across many subjects. In this workshop you will learn how to create a live application on the Internet that connects to remote sensors anywhere in the world, to see the data flow and determine the data that you want to keep. You will then create real-time decision points so that immediate actions can be taken; you will store your data in a database and do some analytics on your data. Finally, you will create a website live on the Internet showing your analysis and your results.
