RFID based Devices for Educative Environments

Ahmed Alzahrani, Vijey Thayananthan, Muhammad Shuaib Qureshi


Educative environments such as universities and schools are involved with advancements of academic infrastructure using computer networks. RFID based devices are also used around and in the educative environments, for instance, library, car park, laboratory etc. However, there is a problem of organizing curricular activities and encouraging students’ learning capabilities with peaceful way. In this paper, we design a theoretical model of RFID based device, which helps to improve the curricular activities and students’ learning capabilities. When RFID based devices are installed around or in the educative environments, the class time will not be wasted at all because registrations of students are monitored automatically. Both teachers and students maintain their punctuality, which is the fundamental issue of increasing students’ activities and memory capacities. Learning attitudes depend on the students’ physical and mental fitness at the time. In this situation, RFID based prediction system can be used as new device, which monitors the students’ fitness and provides quick resolution to encourage the student to be a good listener or active participator in the class.
