Let's fathom the innovative ideas that a digital educational environment has to offer.
Digital classroom. Digital classrooms are upgraded and vibrant study-places where learners can engage themselves in intuitive study. Unlike traditional brick-and-mortar classroom, digital classroom does not bound the students with strict guidelines. They can engage in a audio-visual conference, a small-group or even 1-2-1 conversation whenever they feel the need of it. The classrooms are designed to help students to express their ideas explicitly.

"They have gone from being the sage on the stage to meddlers in the middle," Jeff Zoul, the assistant superintendent for teaching and learning Deerfield Public Schools District 109 said. "I can walk in in the middle of the class and talk to the teacher. I couldn't do that in maths class. They still spend a lot of time in the front of the room."
