CALIOPE mini and gamification.
The Raspberry Pi and the Arduino can be used as „toys“ for students of information systems in order to gain initial access to programming or, in the higher semesters, an introduction to topics such as the Internet of Things (IoT), smart home and smart factory , Even lower-threshold could succeed with the CALLIOPE mini, which manages for the first experiments without additional materials. The CALLIOPE mini was developed for third grade primary classes and is a bit playful. After all, he can be used as a „voltage estimator“. First, it describes how the CALLIOPE mini fits into gamification concepts. Then the concrete structure will be described. A youtube video shows the „CALLIOPE in action“:
CALLIOPE mini is a gadget for the player types „Explorer“ and „Socializer“.
The CALLIOPE mini has sensors and an LED matrix on board, which can be put into operation very easily and quickly. This invites to experiment and „explore“, the player type „Explorer“ should thereby be addressed (Bartle 1996). In the coming semesters, the Weiterlesen
