Below are three resources that make a traditional classroom turn into a smart one.

Voice Assistants

With the rise in the use of voice assistants, there will be new innovative applications coming in for voice to complement the smart classroom experience. Currently, voice assistants are offering immense significance to everyday life while adding the same value to the classrooms as well. Educators can make use of the tools in real-time to set reminders, which can advance the schoolroom processes and assist learners in their instruction and build their knowledge base.


Connected whiteboards are a set of other tools that make a classroom smart. In the past, all the assignment topics, exam dates, and the schedule had to be taken down from the board, which sometimes the students would forget. With smartboards, the issue of noting down certain things is eliminated because the shared record will be available to everyone in the class. The method will lead to high collaboration rates among learners who can talk about the notes through digital management systems.

Digital Textbooks

Digital textbooks stand as a significant resource for the smart classroom. Along with being environmental-friendly and cost-effective, the compact nature of the textbooks makes it easy to carry and take up less space. Compared to conventional books, digital ones are interactive and can be effortlessly connected to the smart classroom.

Digital textbooks can help students in highlighting the information and working together on topics that are difficult to understand in digital books. At the same time, an individual pupil’s notes and workbook can connect to a schoolroom’s smartboard to be shared with the whole class, and learners can share notes through the textbooks. Moreover, most digital texts offer interactive practice and quiz material to supplement the classroom instruction that presents significant value to teachers and students equally.
