Satisfying students’ different needs for learning is an important issue in the education domain. However, teachers used to take an exam to understanding students’ learning progress often in the past, resulting in increasing students’ stress and frustration. Owing to the advent of sensor technology, it provides educators a new way to conveniently assess every student’s learning status in diverse dimensions. For example, a cushion with pressure sensors can find the variety of learners’ sitting postures. With the experiences in the development of sensor and educational technologies, we have seen an emerging trend in the application of multi-sensor technologies to educational environments. Therefore, this article aims to investigate the suitability of different kinds of sensors for the educational scenario, and the potential benefits of integrating multi-sensor technology in schools. It is hoped to suggest readers a further research blueprint for this topic.
