It is a thing of the past when teaching and learning were restricted to classroom sessions prominent with white chalk, dusters, and blackboards. The concept of Digital Class creates an environment where learning and assessment is fun and the opportunities to learn are equitable among the rural, semi urban and urban children. Smart Class is introduced in Government schools covering classes 6th – 12th to attract and retain children and also in the process, enhance quality of learning by making “Learning play”, “Assessment fun” and “Equal Knowledge for all”
These are technology enhanced classrooms that foster opportunities for teaching and learning by integrating learning technology, such as computing devices, audio/visual capabilities, networking, hardware monitoring and state of the art technologies to identify real time behavioral analytics of students using artificial intelligence.

As education continues to develop through the integration of technology in and outside the classroom, the mentality among many teachers has started to shift as well. There used to be a fear that technology would eventually replace the teacher, but the more prevalent view now is that it is a tool which can be applied to enhance conventional teaching rather than replace it. Integrating technology in education helps students stay engaged. Technology uses all interactive modules like videos and presentations and these visually attractive methods of teaching become appealing to students who are already struggling with the traditional method of teaching in a classroom. This is because the audio-visual senses of students are targeted and it helps the students store the information fast and more effectively.
