The future classroom emerges as an approach to enhance pedagogy. Classroom
participants can become more involved in their learning by interaction and collaboration.
This becomes practical due to the extensive availability of modern electronic
devices and networks. To implement an environment that supports the future classroom,
an integration mechanism for various types of devices is required. In this paper, a framework
design is proposed using the concept of the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT aims
to model an application domain as a set of things that are associated with the Internet.
By analyzing the project requirements of future classroom applications, the Extensible
Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is selected as the communication method for
the things. Two examples are also provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the design.
