AbstractThis research proposes an architecture based on the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies for primary school learners to know about various parameters in their environment, that is, the temperature, light, vibration, sound and gas levels. This particular system can be integrated into, not only a formal teaching environment but can also be an additional learning platform outside school. The platform can work in, for example, a physical science class, environmental science class or a geography class. The architecture has the arduino as one of its components. The arduino is fitted with various sensors that can detect the environmental parameters. The information generated by the arduino is fed to learners' Twitter accounts which they can access via mobile phones.
