What is Smart Learning?
Smart learning is a branch of electronic learning which uses advanced educational technology to deliver interactive lessons and assessments carefully designed to suit each learner’s cognitive abilities. It describes a learning approach that employs mobile, wireless communication, and sensing technologies to enable learners to interact with learning materials at their own pace without the barriers of space and time. Smart learning is relatively new in the Nigerian education space, but it is fast gaining acceptance by students, schools and parents because of its role in helping students to better grasp and retain lesson content with ease.
The Difference between Electronic Learning and Smart Learning
Electronic learning and smart learning very closely related terms. Even though they are often used interchangeably, there is still a slight difference between them. Electronic learning is a broad educational concept primarily characterized by the use of electronic media and other types of communication technologies such as computers, mobile phones, smart TVs and the Internet. Smart learning, on the other hand, is a subset of e-learning which focuses on making learning personalized, interactive and engaging through the use of devices like gamification and progress control.
