Student Festival for Digital Artifacts is organised in 16 cities in Greece, in order to promote ΙCT class work, initiative, creativity and collaboration of students and teachers, in subjects related to new technologies, in primary and secondary schools. Each participating group of students present an innovative digital artifact.
Presentations of students’ work, workshops, presentation of high technology achievements and speeches bring together students and teachers and give opportunities for exchanging ideas and collaboration. Is is a festival and not a competition.
Our project “Internet of Things in Aigio” based on the scenario Hand on the Internet of Things was presented in the 9th Student Festival for Digital Artifacts in Patras, Greece on 11-4-2019.
Students from Aigio, who worked on the project during 2018-2019 school year, presented the basic concepts of the Internet of Things and the smart recycling bin application and gained the interest of all. Our application was also installed in the exhibition of the digital artifacts in the festival and our students successfully described our work process and answered questions.
