IoT Workshop on ‘Arduino’

IoT Workshop on ‘Arduino’  @ BBSBEC, Fatehgarh Sahib — Remote center IIT, Bombay (8 Feb 2020)

Introduction to Workshop

IIT Bombay has conducted many large-scale teacher training workshops under the Train 10,000 Teachers (T10KT) programme, sponsored by the National Mission on Education through ICT (NMEICT), MHRD, Govt. of India, and trained over 2,00,000 teachers. About 550 Remote Centres (RC) have been established as a part of this programme.

Another award winning technology developed at IIT Bombay is Spoken Tutorial, using which more than 50 lakh students have been trained on various ICT topics. The effectiveness of this method can be seen from this TEDx talk and the testimonials available here:https://spoken-tutorial.org/testimonials/media/?foss=70. The Spoken Tutorial project is also implemented successfully at IIT Bombay, with funding from NMEICT, MHRD.

The Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching (PMMMNMTT), also an initiative of MHRD, combines T10KT and Spoken Tutorials to provide large scale blended training. Next on this series is a hands on Arduino workshop, to be conducted on Saturday, 08 February 2020, at IIT Bombay. Participants of this workshop will be able to work with this hardware by listening to appropriate Spoken Tutorials.

We will get the required hardware custom made for the Main Workshop.This will help keep the costs low, without affecting the learning outcome. All participants can take home this hardware after the workshop.

As the Spoken Tutorial method offers hands on practice, with 100% active learning, those who undergo this training will be able to continue to work with the hardware even after the workshop. They will also be able to conduct Arduino workshops for their students, using Spoken Tutorials, on their own, without requiring any help from anyone else.

Methodology of the Workshop

It will be a one day workshop on Saturday, 08 February 2020.All participants have to reach their chosen Remote Centre (RC), BBSBEC, Fatehgarh Sahib (to be opted during registration). There will be a live video interaction through A-VIEW at the beginning. After that, all participants who join this course from Remote Centre, will learn to do various experiments using the Arduino kit. There will be two more interactions during the day. There will be about 5 hours available for Arduino training and 2 hours for interactions. Participants at BBSBEC, Fatehgarh Sahib Remote Centre will be helped by Dr. Sukhwinder Sharma, Course Coordinator who would have attended the Coordinators’ workshop at IIT Bombay on 18 January 2020.

Course Content

Arduino is an open source platform used for building electronics projects. Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board or microcontroller and a software, IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on the computer. It is used to write and upload computer code to the physical board

Learning Arduino from Spoken Tutorials

  1. Electronic components and connections
  2. Introduction to Arduino
  3. Arduino components and IDE
  4. First Arduino Program
  5. Arduino with Tricolor LED and Push button
  6. Arduino with LCD
  7. Display counter using Arduino
  8. Seven Segment Display
  9. Pulse Width Modulation
  10. Analog Digital Converter
  11. Wireless connectivity to Arduino

Participants are encouraged to go through these tutorials before they come to the workshop.

Teaching Faculty

This workshop will be conducted using the Spoken Tutorial methodology. Participants will learn Arduino by listening to the Spoken Tutorials and practicing them on ‘Arduino kit’.
Prof. Kannan Moudgalya, Principal Investigator, PMMMNMTT, FOSSEE and Spoken Tutorial projects will coordinate this workshop.
Mr. Srikant Patnaik, Mr. Rajesh Kushalkar, Ms. Nancy Varkey and Ms. Nirmala Venkat, of FOSSEE/Spoken Tutorial projects at IIT Bombay, and Prof. G. V. V. Sharma of IIT Hyderabad will be the teaching faculty.

Who Should Attend

The participant should be a teacher or a research scholar from Electronics, CSE or allied engineering fields and should have basic electronics knowledge, required to work with Arduino, breadboard and electronic components.

Duration and Venue

The workshop will be conducted at Remote Centres of IIT Bombay on Saturday, 8 February 2020, from 9.30 AM to 6.00 PM. This workshop will be conducted through a blended mode, using both live video conferencing facility (A-VIEW) and hands-on sessions using Spoken Tutorials. A detailed workshop schedule will be available soon.

Criteria for Certification

E-certificate will be provided to the participants after successful completion of the workshop.

Course Fee

The course fee for the workshop is Rs. 1,100/-, which has to be paid at the time of online registration.

A kit comprising the following will be given to every participant, which they can take home after the workshop:

  • Arduino Uno compatible board,
  • 10+ resistors,
  • Breadboard,
  • Tricolour LED,
  • Red LED,
  • 7 segment displays (2),
  • 16×2 LCD display,
