The Internet of Things is shaping up to be the ideal vehicle for introducing pervasive computing in our everyday lives, especially in the form of smart home and building management systems. However, although such technologies are gradually becoming more mainstream, there is still a lot of ground to be covered with respect to public buildings and specifically ones in the educational sector. We discuss here \Green Mindset", an action focusing on energy efficiency and sustainability in Greek public schools. A large-scale sensor infrastructure has been deployed to 12 public school buildings across diverse settings. We report on the overall design and implementation of the system, as well as on some first results coming from the data produced. Our system provides a flexible and efficient basis for realizing a unified approach to monitoring energy consumption and environmental parameters, that can be used both for building administration and educational purposes.
