From Educate 1-to-1 – A recent development by Apple, iBeacon is a simple technology allowing devices to signal their presence. Similar to a lighthouse beacon signalling the presence of a nearby coastline with a pulse of light every second, an iBeacon does exactly the same, but with a pulse of a bluetooth radio signal. Thankfully, it’s also on a much smaller scale to a lighthouse, with an iBeacon device being the size of a small pebble, and its signal reaching around 50m.
I feel blessed to be an educator. I have had the good fortune of working as an English teacher, an Assistant Principal, a Principal and an Assistant Superintendent. I currently serve as the Assistant Superintendent of Burlington Public Schools (MA).
