    The advent of Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) technology and its native implementation within the main smartphone manufacturers is ac- celerating the integration of these sensors in smart cities. Bluetooth LE beacons are being novelty used to provide proximity-adapted feedback in the field of shopping, access control, and home entertainment. However, the potential of this technology for learning purposes is unexplored. This manuscript gives an overview of previous work where proximity and feedback have been tackled. The proximity layered feedback model is presented as an approach to provide suitable ambient feedback services in smart learning cities. An ecology of pilots is described as an instantiation of this model in potential learning scenarios to stimulate discussion. Finally, further research is introduced.
