Abstract

The Smart Board is another piece of technology that enriches student-teacher science learning and provides teacher educator with the skills necessary to adapt to a highly technological society. This specific device can be used in the classroom as a gateway to new technologies and its enhancement to ones learning of teacher education. A Smart Classroom is a learning environment that contains all course materials of education. The conception of the smart classroom has made it possible for students to tackle the features of the internet to create a meaningful and constructivist learning environment of School education. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing an important role in the teaching-learning process of the smart classroom. It increases the flexibility of delivery of education so that student-teacher can access knowledge anytime and anywhere easily. At the same time, the student-teacher gets knowledge or skills from some programs and assignments in the concept of the learning environment. The Smart classroom was considered as one of the essential methods to transform the traditional instructional model. From the last two decades, information technology has brought a great revolution in the education department. Information technology provides additional opportunities to the student-teacher for attractive learning. As a results technology usage has been widely increased in teacher education institutions. From the last few years, the teacher education classroom learning process has been significantly changed. Today the smart board is being utilized as a new educational tool for the teacher educator and student-teacher. This technology attempts to provide the delivery of teaching-learning from teacher educators to a student teacher in a highly flexible and comfortable way. This technology environment is one of such broad technology that has been evolved to rapidly deliver rede in classrooms. The Smart Board is used to enhance ones learning and encourage interactive participation from student teacher. Some teachers, teacher educators and student teachers are not familiar with the Smart Board and tend to shy away from it. The main focus of this study identifies effectiveness smart board technology in teaching of science among teacher training students.

This paper introduces a comprehensive mobile learning (m-learning) model in the context of smart classrooms environment as a part of a holistic approach to implement an efficient Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Environment. In this new model, the mobile learning components, as a crucial part of the smart classroom, systematically integrate the “mobile tools” with the teaching-learning practices. However, there are many challenges to generalize such kind of learning to any educational system. A major reason for these challenges is the lack of an integrated model in a holistic approach of the smart classroom and TEL environment. Another critical challenge is designing and developing an efficient m-learning in a smart classroom and inside smart school environment which is due to the complex environment that incorporates many pedagogical and technological elements. The proposed model in this paper is based on an integrated m-learning framework to implement a holistic e-learning approach capable of overcoming these challenges.

The large number of reasonably priced computers, Internet broadband connectivity and rich education content has created a global phenomenon by which information and communication technology (ICT) has used to remodel education. E-learning can be explained as the use of available information, computational and communication technologies to assist learning practice. In the modern world, education has become more universal, and people are looking for learning with simplicity and interest. Students are looking for more interactive and attractive learning style rather than old traditional style. Using technological learning, we can enhance the education system. We can deliver quality education to students as well as we can ease and uniform the process of education by using the modern technologies and methods. In this paper, we propose a smart class model to manage the entire educational activities and hence to enhance the quality of education.

A Smart virtual classroom is an online learning environment that contains all course materials of education. The conception of the smart virtual class room has made it possible for students to tackle the features of the internet to create meaningful and constructivist learning environment of School education. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing vital role in teaching learning process of smart virtual class room. It increases the flexibility of delivery of education so that learners can access knowledge anytime and from anywhere. At the same time the students get knowledge or skills from some programs and assignment in the concept of learning outcomes. Keywords:-Learning outcomes and smart virtual classroom. INTRODUCTION Technology plays a vital role in every sphere of life and education is no exception. The advent of technology has deeply impacted the educational scenario of the world. Technology has certainly changed the way we live. It has impacted the different facets of life and redefined living. In the present era, the development in various aspects of computer technology has reached beyond our imagination and expectations. As computer becomes part and parcel of our life, knowledge of computers is very much needed for everyone. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing a vital role in teaching and learning to meet the needs and anticipation of the learners' in large scale. The main purpose of ICT in education means implementing of ICT equipment and tools in teaching and learning process as a media and methodology. The purpose of ICT in education is generally to make students familiar with the use and workings of computers, and related social and ethical issues. Due to miscellaneous requirements in teaching and learning for a Smart board, there are opportunities and challenges that are to be addressed in usage of the technology and the service(s) being provided through ICT. REVIEW OF RELATED STUDIES Anurag Chaudhary (2014) This paper is about the much growing technology "SMART CLASS and E-LEARNING". The usage of smart teaching techniques is now more prevalent in school as well as other colleges and institutes. It was generated back in 1980s and is growing since then. This new technology helps the students with the benefit of learning with a different experience. The methods of e-learning make the classroom more interactive and interesting. It has also created a greater impact on our society as well as on education system. The government has also
