Smart Classrooms

This year has been quite distressing for students, parents, children, and school owners alike. According to the UNICEF data, more than 1 billion children are at risk of falling behind due to school closures aimed at containing the spread of COVID-19. 

In response to the unprecedented educational challenges created by school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 90 per cent of countries have implemented some form of remote learning policy.

Most schools have settled for online learning without realising the serious repercussion it may have on the performance of children. Online learning was just a means to connect educators with the learners when first deployed immediately after the virus outbreak. However, since the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have only begun to manifest, remote learning programmes must be reinvented to ensure that existing learning gaps are not further widened.

Why not online learning?

Online learning has not been proven effective. It doesn’t guarantee results, has no definite structure and students are often seen out to lunch. 

Well-designed digital learning platforms that now have started surfacing in the education space have the potential to provide interactive and engaging remote education. This could be a long-term respite for governments, schools, and teachers globally, as they are looking for the best instant solutions to offer remote learning opportunities. 

The advent of the smart classroom changed the dynamics of the Indian education system

Smart classrooms help teachers leverage technology to facilitate 21st-century skills. These classrooms are assisted by an integrated academic platform that converts ‘traditional’ classrooms into smart ones. With the help of smart classrooms, not only continuity in education is ensured but the quality of the curriculum is enhanced too. This platform has every teaching material that makes the entire teaching process easier. So teachers are no more confused or hassled about taking classes online. They can do that with great efficacy. Access to a large resource pool via smart classes makes it easier for teachers to impart lectures. 

Smart classrooms

With the help of visuals, photos, graphs, videos, students tend to retain the information better and for longer.  

Students have access to synchronised learning where with just a click they can access every learning material or can go back to the previous lectures they may have missed. This is not all, smart classrooms with the help of an integrated academic system also emphasise the practical know-how of subjects. So, for all of you who think homeschooling doesn’t bring any element of fun and is just supposed to be ‘boring’, you might want to change your opinion.
