1. What is Smart Education

What is Smart Education

“Smart Education” is to create a new pattern of education in an all-around way by use of information technology. In the field of education, comprehensively and deeply use information technology to develop educational resources, and share innovative achievements. Smart education is conducive to improving the quality and efficiency of education and teaching and promoting the historical process of educational reform and development. Smart education is an important symbol of educational modernization. It has become a strategic requirement for the development of China’s educational undertakings to drive educational modernization with educational informatization.

2. What are Examples of smart education?

What are Examples of smart education

Intelligent Classroom

The intelligent classroom can realize real-time feedback of dialogue through a virtual classroom, which will make students feel more intimate and highly accepted in the way of dialogue. Personalized dialogue guidance can also be developed according to students’ previous learning data. Through automatic detection of students’ classroom status, including the number of students, sitting posture, behavior, facial expression, etc., intelligent statistics of indicators such as head-up rate, mobile phone rate, concentration, and leaving rate can be realized.

Intelligent learning system

The so-called intelligent learning system refers to a system constructed with the help of technologies such as “Internet +”, artificial intelligence, virtual simulation, and big data. Path. The system provides an effective learning guide to help students complete the system of personalized learning activities, realizing dynamic planning of learning.

Intelligent search and homework correcting

Intelligent search and homework correcting are OCR text recognition and handwriting recognition applications.

Intelligent voice commands

Through voice recognition technology, the APP can automatically identify the instructions of students and realize the automatic page turning, query and search, page jumping, and other command functions. It can cooperate with students’ teaching content, automatically and smoothly read the contents for students. It can also automatically convert the teacher’s words into writing words and directly display them on the screen so that students can quickly and clearly understand the teaching content.

3. The future trend of IoT Smart Education

trend of IoT Smart Education

Smart education is educational informatization. In the current society, information technology has been widely used in various fields, and the education industry is no exception. Among them, people have begun to comprehensively use information in teaching management, educational research, and education teaching in the education industry.

“Smart education” is a modern education information service system led by the government and jointly constructed by schools and enterprises. The system consists of cloud computing, Internet of things, Internet, digital courseware, public service platform, and cloud equipment to form an open campus and realize cross-city and cross-local sharing of educational resources. Education authorities and schools can also achieve clean and efficient management through the system. Under the influence of artificial intelligence, big data, and “Internet +” and other technologies, education has gradually changed from traditional education to intelligent education.

4. Why smart education is important?

Why smart education is important

01. Achieve remote intelligent control

Intelligent classrooms through the Internet of things technology enable the teacher or the student to control the teaching auxiliary equipment such as computers, the electronic blackboard in the classroom through the App, remote control, intelligent analysis, etc. In addition, the environment system like the curtain, lighting, air conditioning, and entrance guard can be controlled too. The teachers and students can both switch or adjust the equipment according to their needs.

02. Achieve remote inspection tracking

The intelligent classroom can realize remote inspection of the equipment in the classroom. Tracking and managing the life cycle of the equipment in the classroom, provide a decision basis for whether to replace the equipment, which will greatly reduce the cost of labor management.

03. Achieve remote monitoring and teaching

The intelligent classroom can realize the safety management of the classroom asset. Once the assets are taken from the classroom, the management center will sound the alarm system in time! The intelligent classroom also has energy consumption analysis ability. The system carries out energy consumption statistics and analysis according to equipment, classroom, building, etc. Intelligent operation and maintenance, reservation management, live streaming, recording, on-demand, and course networking are realized.

04. The teaching mode emphasizes students as the main body

The teaching model of the intelligent classroom emphasizes the use of “student-oriented, teacher-led” exploration and assisted learning methods; It emphasizes students’ autonomous learning ability. Classroom teaching should pay more attention to the process of teaching and learning, rather than the traditional form in which the whole class is taught by teachers and students only passively input knowledge. Through the assistance of Internet of Things information technology, two-way and equal communication between teachers and students can be better achieved. This helps to achieve the purpose of happy learning and effective learning.

5. The challenge of IoT intelligent education

The challenge of IoT intelligent education

Smart education is of great significance to the promotion of modern teaching and education, but it also brings many challenges, mainly in the following three aspects:

First, the business level: Many important business systems require high security and reliability of the structure.

Second, the operation and maintenance aspect: Intelligent teaching requires a large number of systems and network devices, and at the same time has high requirements for the operation and maintenance of these systems. The time and energy consumption of operation and maintenance personnel is also greatly increased.

Third, the data aspect: The data generated in the teaching process is collected into the system.  The data needs to be saved and backed up in time so that it can play an active role in the teacher’s teaching in time.
