In the past year, students and teachers had to adapt to online learning, and many struggled because they weren’t equipped with the right tools and devices.

Technology has progressed at a rapid rate, and now is the perfect time to harness the power of tech in the classroom.

Nowadays, many teachers are still conducting lessons using the blackboard while students learn through textbooks. However, there are tonnes of educational materials accessible online.

To help bridge the gap, SNS Network has come up with a Smart Classroom concept that will make teaching and learning more effective for both teachers and students.

A smart classroom creates an inclusive environment where both the students and teachers are able to engage with one another digitally. Usually, in a normal classroom, it’s a one-way learning process where the teachers teach and students listen.

But these smart devices allow for a thriving environment where both teachers and students can function and engage productively, whether from home or in a classroom.

In other words, it’s the classroom of the future, where teachers and students rely on computers, laptops, and other devices in an innovative environment.

Check out these smart devices designed for future learning:

1. Teachers can give live demonstrations with JOI Smartboard

It allows for the teachers to prepare their lessons easily and efficiently without wasting time writing down on blackboards repeatedly. The JOI Smart Board comes pre-installed with Android apps as well as sidebar widgets that the teachers can use to enhance their teaching methods.

When information is presented through the JOI Smart Board, it helps make learning much more interesting and easy to understand as students are able to witness demonstrations done over presentations.
