Smart education – a synergy of electronic and distance learning and the fundamental element for the development of a digital society.
A new look at learning
It's not just about technology, but also about the special philosophy of education: Smart Education is flexible learning in a living and ever-changing educational environment. As the information is freely available, knowledge becomes as accessible as possible. An interactive approach to the educational process makes it more exciting and diverse.
In addition, through the transition from passive content to active - online - a two-way communication appears between the teacher and students. The teacher continuously receives a feedback from each student - even if he does not express himself directly.
Thanks to the Internet of things, such passive elements of the interior, as a board and desk, can turn into intellectual assistants. Different subjects and applications that make up the educational environment can be programmed in a specific way depending on the task, for example - acquire a certain physical skill, teach three foreign languages in parallel, assimilate certain material, etc. It can be programmed so that it helps to focus on learning by disabling all distractions or by encouraging "bonuses" for a small achievement.
- Systems of artificial intelligence in the form of advisory services and decision support systems.
- Electronic bracelets to control attendance and obtain individual tasks.
- Sensors on the head, watching the brain activity of students.
- smart desks with a touchscreen for teamwork.
- Electronic boards.
- Virtual audiences.
- Electronic diaries.
- Chambers in classrooms that broadcast lectures online.
Relevance is justified!
The development of digital technologies and telecommunication systems changes the ways in which knowledge is recorded, transmitted and created, and skills are formed. In addition, IT changes the process of assessing and recording achievements.
People can control the trajectory of their intellectual development. The described technologies are fundamentally transnational, they can penetrate into any organization. Economic dynamics in industrially developed countries dictate the demand for new types of competencies and new forms of training.
Today, businesses need people that are as creative as possible, quick and flexible, independent and located to team work with different technological environments. At the same time, there is a growing need for lifelong learning models that allow constant training of personnel in accordance with a changing range of tasks.
Education is increasingly perceived as an intangible investment asset, the process of formation, fixation and capitalization of which must be made as manageable as possible - and in this successfully helps the Internet of things.
