Much is being said about the Internet of Things (IoT) but there is little focus on education regarding the possible opportunities and threats of IoT. From smart homes, to smart cars, to wearable technologies such as the Fitbit, current trends suggest that, regardless of what the “thing” is, if it can be connected to the Internet, it will be connected and soon. In a number of sectors, settings, and fields the convergence of different technologies working together through IoT to solve problems is being harnessed to improve outcomes. Few would argue that IoT has significant potential to impact how we live and work, yet there are many complexities surrounding the data that is being collected from everywhere on almost everyone.
