iBeacons at Clevedon School

Back in 2014, Lewis implemented and experimented with iBeacon technology at Clevedon School as part of iClevedon and the Clevedon School Handbook app.

Together with the assistance of Mr G. Smart, Assistant Director at Clevedon Learning Hub and Apple Distinguished Educator, we put together an application utilising this technology.

The app supports context-based (location and time aware) notifications and prompts students to download resources when relevant to them.

Within 2-3 weeks of development, we were able to give a demonstration of iBeacon technology integrated within the application at the Apple offices in London.

The project incorporated bespoke integrations to services like Foldr and Firefly, alongside an online drag-and-drop interface for scheduling resources.
