Smart Classroom concept is a way of digital learning. From the beginning it was an imagination of the student. This type of classroom has digital equipped with a huge variety of teaching learning methods using technology. In these days many more classrooms are doing or using audio and visual components to a lesson. A smart classroom helps a teacher through technology as well. The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of smart classroom through statistical analysis. For study,10th grades students were selected. Teacher taught 10th grades student between two ways which were traditional way and other one smart teaching learning process. From this analysis getting that students are more interested to join smart class than traditional classes. The sample of the study comprised of 120 students of 10th grade students. The analysis was conducted the way of pre-test score and post test score of two groups. As a result smart classroom have more positive effect on education than traditional class.


KEYWORDS: Smart classroom, Traditional classroom, Digital equipped.




“In times of change, the learners will inherit the Earth while the knower’s will find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.”

A smart class room is where the concept of blended learning is blooming. Smart class rooms are technologically enhanced that enable teaching and learning is fun when subjects are interesting and smart classes are doing exactly that by making the student most boring subject palatable. With ICT development, various smart devices and web services have been applied to classrooms. Interactive white board has appeared and many students have smart phone and smart pads.


A smart classroom is a ramped-up mode of education which instead of taking way from education on the attention span of students adds opportunities to the existing traditional classroom setup. The opportunity to provide student with quality education by helping game understand concepts better, improve their reading and comprehension skills and achieve academic excellence. The purpose of the study is comparing the effect of the smart classroom throw data collection and analysis of the given classrooms. For an effective analysis, 10th grades in an secondary school had participated, the teacher had taught the same class twice, once in the way of traditional teaching learning and second class was carried out with the smart devices and smart teaching learning method.

Bano (2016) in her research paper titled, “Impact of Smart Classroom Learning Environment on the Performance of First Grade Students in English investigated the 81 effect of smart classroom learning on the performance of first grade students in English subject. The present study is an experimental one and is conducted in Srinagar district of Kashmir. The investigator has taken 30 first grade students from Govt. High school Bakshipora. The investigator conducted experiment on the basis of pre-test and post-test. Performance test standardized by the investigator was used for the collection of data and t-test (correlated groups) was used to analyse the data. The result reveals smart classroom learning positively affects the performance of students in English”.


Srivastva (2015) in his research paper studied, “Efficacy of Educomp Smartclass, the effectiveness of Educomp smart class for enhancing student’s academic performance and studied the attitude of students when multimedia was used in classroom. The study revealed that Multimedia Instructional Strategy enhanced the student’s cognitive achievement and also interest in Mathematics. The students' cognitive achievement and interest in Maths were enhanced mostly by the multimedia strategy and minimally by the conventional strategy irrespective of sex. It is evident that the use of video tape in teaching math’s concepts provides precise visual feedback and hence incontrovertible evidence of what happened in the class”.


Menon (2015) in her research paper analyzed, “the effectiveness of smart classroom teaching on the achievement in Chemistry of secondary school students. The study investigated 320 Class IX students from Amritsar city. Achievement test in Chemistry of 82 50 items was used to collect the data. Experimental group was taught in smart classrooms and control group was taught by conventional mode of instruction. The results revealed that students achieved higher when taught in smart classes as compared to conventional mode of instruction. Learning styles of students did not affect their achievement in experimental and control group. No interaction effect of instructional strategies and learning styles was foun


Foreign Research:

Taleb and Hassanzadeh (2015) in their research paper titled, “Toward Smart School: A Comparison between Smart School and Traditional School for Mathematics Learning, found the quality of nation’s political, social and economic future will depend on the capabilities of their young generation. Smart schools have been proposed as a solution to increase the capabilities of the new generation in the era of ICT. Recently, many smart schools have been established in Iran and other developing countries. The aim of this study is to compare smart training method and traditional training method in learningretention processes of Mathematics”.


Taleb et. al. (2015) in their research paper titled, “the effect of m-learning on mathematics learning, found that mobile technology opens the door for next generation and let the learning occurs in anytime, anywhere and to be influence in a variety of learning contexts. The study was conducted in 329 teachers from 2352 secondary school teachers of Mathematics from 19 districts of Tehran using descriptive-field method during 2012-2013 academic years. A researcher-made Likhert-type questionnaire was developed to identify the teachers’.



1.     To study of mean difference between boys and girls of smart class

2.     To study of mean difference between boys and girls of traditional class



Hypothesis H0 1: There will be no significant mean difference between boys and girls on smart classrooms


Hypothesis H0 2: There will be no significant mean difference between boys and girls on traditional classrooms


Variables of the Study:

The variables involved in the study are as follows:


Dependent Variables:

In an experiment, the dependent variable is a variable whose values are expected to change as a function of the independent variables (Cottan, Uhler, Mastors and Preston, 2010). Effectiveness of the study is measured in terms of achievement of the students. So, effectiveness is considered as a dependent variable.


Independent Variables:

Independent variables are the conditions or characteristics that the experimenter manipulates to ascertain their relationship to observed phenomena (Best and Khan, 2002). Teaching method is an independent variable. So, the teaching through conventional method, teaching through smart classroom with the support of teacher and teaching through smart classroom without the support of teacher are considered as independent variables.


Population and sample of the study:

In the present study sample of (N-120) students of 10th grade was drawn randomly. Out 120 students, they were randomly divided into two groups with reference to their score of pre- test, post- test.



Research design:

In the present study there had two groups which were experimental group and control group.


Research tool:

Self made power point presentation as smart class technique with the help of smart devices is included in the smart class.
