The digital revolution that began in the 1980s has touched and changed almost everything in today’s world. People, though initially conservative, started seeing the world through a different lens. The buzz about ‘Internet’ helped itself to grow without any bounds. Within the next few decades, the Internet grew so much that it was considered to be a magical potion that every household must possess and consume.
But this was majorly limited to E-Commerce & social media and formal education was linearly exempted. Of course, the Internet was used to gain access to many research and study materials, but it wasn’t included in the mainstream educational practice aka the Classrooms. But this changed when many educationalists supported the introduction of the internet in schools.
As a result, by the year 2002, almost 99% of the schools in the USA had access to the internet. It opened up access to a plethora of resources that were hitherto available and gave students in far flung corners access to modern educational content.
How did the introduction of Smart Classrooms change the Educational System?
Before understanding this, we must understand what a Smart Classroom is? The traditional way of teaching has helped many students across the globe over centuries. But it cannot stay the same especially when the modern students are majorly gadget-drawn. Thus, Smart Classrooms were introduced to tackle this problem and enhance the methods of teaching. The elements of a Smart Classroom include projectors, smart screens, digital white boards, LED pointer pens and many more. Many schools even provide the students with Tablets.
Now, coming to our primary question “How Smart Classrooms changed the Educational System?”. Simply by changing the way of interacting with students. Any content presented in the right way will reach the audience hassle free. In the same way, after introducing Smart Classrooms, teachers were able to deliver the content much more effectively and efficiently by projecting audios and visuals related to a topic. Smart Classrooms also allowed the students to be creative and also allowed the teacher to view each and every student’s work without any physical bias. Smart Classrooms enabled the Educational Institutions to regulate their platform and this further streamlined the cumulative communication.
