Description of the scenario as PDF
Later on: Video
In the Living room switching of the ceiling lights is done by two-way circuits with conventional switches. Another luminaire is a
floor lamp, which is connected to the power supply via a 230V socket. In a first task the control of the floor lamp and the conventionally constructed two-way circuit should be replaced by smart home devices.
1. Start by planning the required workflow and document your workflow.
2. Discuss your workflow with the other members of your learning group and correct it if necessary.
3. After documenting your planning, please realize the work steps by using the smart wall.
4. Document the working steps you have done.
5. Document the problems during installation and configuration as well as the way to solve those problems.
a. Integration of the Phillips Hue LEDs
b. Integration of additional switches
c. Implementation of voice control
d. Network communication in a smart home network
Depending of the learning group, the task could be formulated open or in narrow steps. The document 1_Smart_Light_control_students-tasks-v1-ENG.pdf is an example for an open formulation of questions, the document 1_Smart_Light_control_students-tasks-v2-ENG.pdf is an example for narrow steps. The best way of collaboration is group work, 2 to maximal 4 students per group.
Depending of the learning group, the first task of the described module needs 4 to 6 h, without a final documentation like the video clip or a detailed process-orientated project documentation.
More detailed information about the tasks teacher and trainer will find in the document 1_Smart_Light_control_student-tasks-information for-teachers-ENG.pdf
The students will realize the tasks described before by using the “Smart Wall”.
After installation and configuration they will test the function of the smart home devices and thy will discuss with the other students the results and the problems that occur.
The Smart Wall is an experimental setting which contains a conventional two-way circuit, Controller for Bosch smart home devices and for Phillips hue light as well as the 230V AC power supply.
The description of the “Smart Wall” for teachers and a detailed component list you will find in the following two documents:
The documentation, for example, could be a video clip or a process-orientated project documentation.
The video clip can be produced with a smartphone and an app like Quik or Adobe Clip
means a narrative scenario which is presented in an authentic situation.
means the development of the concrete tasks, the work plan, (international) division of work, ways of collaboration
means a multidisciplinary or multinational problem solving, implementation of the tasks
means an assessment of training success
Reflection and evaluation
means a meta-cognitive self-reflection and evaluation of the learning process
