In this paper an experimental Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) platform is introduced as an aid in teaching location techniques based on RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) in the frame of a an radiolocation course at graduate level. The platform is implemented using low-cost commercial modules and one easy-to-use software program. The teaching methodology tries to develop the learning by doing theory and it is completed with a final practice that implements the learning-through-play theory. Both techniques have resulted in positive learning outcomes by enhancing the student role in the learning process.
