Chapter 1: Introduction
In the modern era, there have been considerable improvements in teaching methods. Students are being stimulated to think more and ask more.

With the advent of the internet, there have been drastic changes in the education sector. Smart education has acquired significance in the recent times and has made possible many things that were impossible years ago, particularly regarding aspects of education involving the personal convenience of teachers and especially students.

Visual learning using smart technologies serves the audience well through incorporating elements such as graphs, images, charts, and presentations that are not easily conveyed by classroom notes or text. Visualization allows students to use their imaginations, which develops their interest and motivates them to learn more.

Smart learning uses smart boards that are capable of doing many things. This technology requires the creation of transparent worksheets that are simply placed under a camera for viewing on a smart board. Computer monitors can also be displayed on smart boards.

Writing can be added to an image using a highlighter tool, and the hand can be used as a mouse to control the projected screen without returning to the computer.

Wall mounts can be used in conjunction with smart boards to facilitate smart learning while giving presentations or watching videos since they are moveable and students can easily approach them.

Smart education technology includes hardware (e.g., interactive white boards, interactive displays, interactive tables, student response systems, laptops, desktops, tablets, stylus pens, wireless slates, classroom wearables, wrist-worn equipment, head gear, projectors, sound systems, digital classroom (DC), and 3-D printers), software (e.g., learning management systems (LMS), learning content management systems (LCMS), adaptive learning platforms (ALPs), and assessment systems) and content (e.g., audio-based, video-based and text).

Coupling education with technology is a sure road to success. In 2016, North America had the highest share of the educational equipment market at about 40.8%.

During the forecast period, the market for educational equipment is expected to grow by 14%, primarily driven by educational hardware, which accounts for over 40% of the market, followed by software and content, which, account for approximately 29% and 30% of the market, respectively.
