As COVID 19 survivors, we have witnessed how education industry has been
through a storm of change altogether. With schools, colleges, coaching classes,
auditoriums, halls etc shutting down, the online onscreen give & take of knowledge has
become a part of the new reality. With the help of technology, the online classrooms
have become smarter & can resolve any challenge, whether its online long-distance
teaching, two-way communication or even some real life experience in demand; with its
diversity & variety.
A smart classroom doesn’t only depends on the loads of equipment & a lump-sum
of money that goes into making it. It can be accomplished with minimal budget too. Which
is what we are here to discuss.
Lets jump right in & explore what all lays in the bucket for us all.
- Level 1: Entry Level- Smart Class Setup
This is a pocket friendly kind of budget that fits the bare
minimum requirement for a smart classroom& can be accomplished with chalk &
board setup too. With minimal budget, one can divide & invest in devices like
camera/smart-phone, laptop/desktop & a microphone and make your own smart setup.
- Level 2: Beginner Level- Smart Class TV
What a Smart TV can do for any educational setup can surprise
you. If you want to include presentations, animated educational stories,
informative videos & many more as a part of daily teaching routines, then, its
going to be a solution for all your needs jam-packed into one. Smart Televisions
along with a camera, microphone & a laptop will complete your smart class setup.
Smart TVs, being more engaging than normal board helps learner stay connected as
there is no lag-time generated by actually writing every concept & then
explaining. It just requires a one click-flick.
- Level 3: Intermediate level- Interactive Board
If you’re planning on improving your teaching experience, then,
instead of normal Smart Television, you can upgrade to Interactive Screen

by boosting their productivity.
- Level 4: Advance Level- Two Way Interactive Setup
As we move up the ladder, better education will demand more
interaction & engagement. In previous solutions, student were not properly

interaction solved the problem. An another display screen behind the camera for
clearer two-way reception & interaction on which all students will be visible to
the teacher, so that both can learn & even interact back & forth. It solves the
whole problem & makes it easier for both.
- Level 5: Pro Level- Green-Screen Chroma Key Virtual Classes
Its another way of teaching with impact that creates a
scenario-based learning & engages the learner, better. Video teaching through
chroma helps a learner transition from idea to idea that builds the whole
concept in their mind. Applying Chroma Key effects is a simple, cost effective
method to add visual impact to your training video. You can change the entire
screen behind you to play videos/image/annotation for illustrations,
demonstrations, presentation, human interaction. What more can we ask for!
These five types of smart classroom solution have entirely
changed the education industry as we know it. We are in the new age of knowledge
