The first thing which pops in our mind when we think of a classroom would be a room with a faded blackboard, a few wooden benches and tables and a teacher with a few pieces of chalk and a dusty duster in his hand. You can also visualize a few charts on the walls explaining some important things. But, with the advancements in technology today the management of many educational institutions and schools are inhabiting the developed smart classrooms to give a new concept of the classroom to their students.
Introduction to a Smart Classroom
A lecture room that is technologically smart and can provide learning and teaching opportunities to increase learning outcomes much better than ever, is known as a Smart Classroom. In these smart classrooms learning is made fascinating with the adoption of new high-end digital technology, learning devices, special software products and visual and audio systems containing unlimited questions and adaptive quiz programs.
Why are Smart Classrooms needed?
Today smart classrooms have become the need of the time due to their salient features like:
Active Learning: Certain technology-powered products are used in smart classrooms in collaboration with traditional classroom courses to make them easy to understand for the children. The interactive display can be used collectively by the teachers and students to improve their thoughts and clarify their doubts using certain features of these dedicated devices or various other features.
Interactive Display: To show active interactive multimedia content on the plasma screen, an LCD screen or glass window of storefront interactive displays are used. The system of a smart classroom can make a flat surface interactive by using camera-based devices with technology to recognize gestures.
