In recent years, the education sector has seen a noticeable increase in educational standards, advancement and innovations. Hence, a 21st century education must provide a holistic and quality education which empowers students to optimise their potential, thrive in the global workplace, and function productively in society.
JOI® Smart Classroom provides a flexible learning approach for different environment and settings. The effectiveness of the JOI® Smart Classroom lies on the use of sophisticated technological equipment, as well as the layout and the implementation of a more flexible learning environment which aims to produce a diverse array of activities in the classroom, either collaboratively or individually which emphasizes on the 21st century learning skills, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.
A Better Learning and Teaching Environment with JOI® Smart Classroom
The use of JOI® devices eases the learning process for all students and promotes more interaction between teacher and student with more participation from both sides. JOI® Smart Classroom is adaptable to different classroom settings and equipment and thus, the solution is flexible to meet the needs of different teaching strategies and learning preferences whether in group settings or even 1-on-1 teaching. It is flexible and do not compromise learning and teaching experience even in the condition of limited or without internet access.
Through the technology and system, information can be illustrated with the help of photos, maps, graphs, flowcharts and animated videos. This makes learning more attractive, interesting and easy to understand. It encourages the ability of students to learn and memorize the topic for a prolonged period of time. At the same time, the JOI® interactive whiteboard helps teachers to deliver lectures more effectively by using the different projections in their presentation to explain the topic.
Real time data are retrieved from the integrated network and to be centralized in the School Server. It had made it possible to collect and analyse details about student performance and behaviour which enable educational institutions to glean useful insights from data in improving students’ performance. It also offer functions on both the academic and administrative sides, improving student performance to managing student enrolment and budgeting strategically.
Student learning behaviours analysis is another important application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in this smart education solution by utilizing big data and AI to intelligently identify and analyse students’ learning pattern and behaviour apart from homework, exercises and exams. These data can also be analysed to help educators to optimize their pedagogical approach and the quality of the teaching objectives.
Implementing the right educational technology is important and crucial to keep the modern classroom moving forward. Adapting technologies from the industry leaders, the expansion and extended networks of JOI® platform are scalable to integrate the future education needs including classroom digitization, global learning, extended classroom community, virtual reality in education, artificial intelligence in education, data analytics for improvement, just to name a few.
Student Devices: Choosing the right education devices that are best for learning needs across range of ages and activities, enhances learning experience through educational technology. JOI® Smart classroom Solution is designed to compatible with various form factor of computing devices powered by Intel's best-ever generation of core processors, supporting the needs of device performance that leads to meaningful learning experiences.
Educator Devices: JOI® Interactive Whiteboard OPS solution based on Intel architecture powered by Intel® Core™ i5 or Intel® Core™ i7 Processor. Its remote management capability through the Intel® vPro™ Platform enable remote management for better manageability of the device. On the other hand, the Intel® Unite Solution promotes cost-effective collaboration, enabling screens sharing and other content using a variety of endpoint devices in the classroom environment.
Connectivity Devices: Taking the classroom digital is now easier than ever. JOI® Connect powered by Intel® processor is specifically designed to store, manage and distribute lesson contents wirelessly. It makes access to digital content easier than ever and it solves the challenge of low or no connectivity transforming the classroom experience. The device content management allows lesson to be created and stored in advance.
School Servers: The right combination of cloud computing and on-premise school servers can be customized to keep learning environments supported and safe, no matter their location or internet connectivity. Intel® Xeon® scalable processors optimize interconnectivity with a focus on speed without compromising data security, at the same time optimizing learning experiences.
Visual Data Devices: Student learning and behaviour data is dynamically collected and analyse to improve teaching and learning experience. With the convergence of scalable hardware and software solutions, the Intel® Distribution of it’s toolkit will be able to boost the inference applications across multiple networks with high throughput and efficiency.
Through the application of smart classrooms in the education sector, learning has been enhanced through creation of a innovative environment that facilitate aspects of learning such as distance learning that were not possible prior to the introduction of smart classrooms. The remaining part is the improvement of effectiveness of smart classrooms to cater for emerging learning needs and the changing rate of technology.
In the long term, we foresee a linked and synchronise nationwide school network that is beneficial for the nation, in terms of curricular assessment require, data collection for education research, budget planning and resources allocation.
