How smart are smart classrooms? Evaluating International Evidence

131 views

Published on

There has been a considerable progress in integrating technological innovations to facilitate the learning process. This has a potentially important implications on student’s learning process as well as the role of teachers. SMART Classroom is a machine-assisted educational platform developed in Korea that allows learners to study at their own pace while teachers play a role as advisers, coaches and facilitators. Artificial intelligence allows for identification of optimal lessons based on learning algorithms and patterns of individual learning. The session will showcase an example of a framework of Korean education policies and an initiative of smart classroom, and how it has contributed to improving the learning quality and reducing the education gap in Korea.

  2. 2. the term smart classroom is often used as a catch-all term for classrooms with technology
  3. 3. environment technological infrastructure data infrastructure pedagogical framework integration (ecosystem) smart classroom
  4. 4. environment technological infrastructure data infrastructure pedagogical framework • architecture, physical environments (HBI) • furnitures, • ambient (humidity, light, noise, air quality)
  5. 5. environment technological infrastructure data infrastructure pedagogical framework (55% Secondary schools SC) Ministry of Education, Rwanda.
  6. 6. environment technological infrastructure data infrastructure pedagogical framework • electricity/connectivity • Hardware: connected devices / smart board, tablets, phones, touch tablets, projector, camera (RFID), sensors (biometric), VR/AR • Software: platforms (LMS), cloud, contents (library), apps (games), automated scoring
  7. 7. environment technological infrastructure data infrastructure pedagogical framework Ceibal en ingles (Uruguay)
  8. 8. environment technological infrastructure data infrastructure pedagogical framework • students information systems (EMIS), • analytics (teacher dashboard), • adaptive (AI, intelligent tutoring systems), • anti-plagarism • open standards and interoperability
  9. 9. environment technological infrastructure data infrastructure pedagogical framework Jinhua Xiaoshun - Primary School (WSJ)
  10. 10. environment technological infrastructure data infrastructure pedagogical framework • teacher-student, • student-student (collaboration), • student-content (access) • synchronous (same time) and/or asynchronous (same "virtual" space) • learning setting: formal, informal (exploration), blended (flipped)
