How can we improve teaching in schools with smart technologies in poor economies ? Are there low cost options or setup that can help schools to build a smart system ?

MOOCs etc.

Today, even developed  colleges are beginning to identify students who are adept at learning online and reward top achievers and professors. Employers, graduate and business schools are beginning to troll MOOCs [massive open online courses] seeking viable job, and academic, candidates.

In fact, when I last checked for the US, the nation’s graduate, B-school and MBA students were enrolled in more than 118 online programs. MOOCs offer greater access for a larger number of students, at significantly lower costs than on-site programs.  

Any thoughts?

Now it is accepted by many to take online education and learning. Again technology has reached in a such a position that witout smart learning education process can not be completed. Even it is required in every step of life of a educated person. Each good educational institute is also extending smart education facility for their students. If smart learning is not there student not know that. - Er. Jangyadutta 10 months ago

I think low cost computing devices are a good option. If a school can afford a projector and a low cost computing device such as raspberry pi etc, a lot of content can be played.

However smart technology education shall be expensive. as low cost facility shall not be possible to be provided in all places. - J N Das 10 months ago
It is only possible through video teaching method as low cost. - J N Das 10 months ago
Actually, many of these platforms and others, are free or very low cost - Dr. David E. 10 months ago
So it should be an approach to provide smart learning facility in to the areas where it is difficult to be facilitated to children so that complete smart education shall spread soon. - Er. Jangyadutta 10 months ago

In case of early learning smart education is difficult but now children are very smart. - Er. Jangyadutta 10 months ago
But in case of higher education smart technology has better effect and it has made students more productive and result oriented. - Er. Jangyadutta 10 months ago

Yes- Old school for elementary is always the best option. A teacher, a classroom and a book. - Hitesh 10 months ago

Learning Technology

By the same token, technology like Blackboard®, Cengage, eXplorance, BANNER and Kalture must be used to full potential.

For example, Smart phones, PCs and tablets, videos, interactive games, AI simulators and apps with Skype®-like virtual classrooms and cloud storage are obvious embellishments to online initiatives.
