Collaborative Learning: In a smart classroom, with products such as Spark devices powered by Eins.ai technology, collaboration within a class becomes very easy. Teachers and pupils can come and collaborate on the interactive display, which has multitouch feature, or from their dedicated devices to push their thoughts and doubts on to the display for everyone in class to see.

The internet content is always updated and filters out anything irrelevant material for classroom purposes.
A Teacher’s Assistant App:
It is not uncommon to find a teaching assistant in a traditional classroom. Just like any other assistant, the teachers will find a confidant in AskEins. AskEins is an in-built learning assistant in Spark devices that helps teachers prepare for lessons and teach concepts effectively.
Remote Classroom Access: Absence in class is a common incident; be it the flu, fever or a holiday. Now students in a smart classroom won’t miss a day of learning, thanks to the Eins.ai technology which enables remote access to an ongoing class. With the permission of the teacher the student can attend the class from wherever he or she is at.
Lesson-Plan Creation:With the help of AskEins, a teacher can take a break from the painstaking process of lesson planning. He or she can make lesson plans on the go! One needs to only login and ask the assistant to populate information pertaining to the topic from the curriculum and Voila! A lesson plan for the particular session is ready. Teacher can now focus on teaching.
Save Class Option: If a teacher feels that the class is worth saving for future reference or to pass on to students for revision, he or she can do so. The entire session can be saved in MyCloud and can be revived anytime it is necessary.
Animated Modules and Videos: In today’s classrooms children are smarter than the methods of teaching, as they have access to alternative source of information like the Internet. So, a smart classroom, in order to keep up with these tech-savvy children, attracts attention by displaying animated media, such as videos, pictures and audios pertaining to the lesson in hand. This not only enhances the aesthetics of teaching but also helps students remember and visualise concepts in their mind, making them easier to learn.
