Mobile device (tablet or smartphone) is the best tool for interaction
On-site/Online/Online+On-site hybrid classrooms are all available
In the Mobile Smarter Classroom, teachers use HiTeach 5's interactive teaching functions, while students can use various mobile devices (such as smartphones, tablets, and PCs) to open Web IRS and perform the tasks assigned by the teacher, allowing teacher-student interaction while breaking the limitation of distance.
With the increasing popularity of mobile devices, from the early Student-Tablet or e-student-backpack application to the recent "one student with one tablet" policy promoted by many governments are all the development applications of this trend of mobile device popularity. Each student is equipped with a mobile device, and teachers can attend to each student through data interaction. In this way, teachers can provide suitable teaching materials for each student, cultivate independent thinking and inquiry skills, and achieve a one-to-one (one-to-one computing, 1:1) learning effect. It is a smarter classroom that can best teach students according to their aptitude.
How Mobile Smarter Classroom Works?
The Mobile Smarter Classroom is mainly composed of HiTeach 5 on the teacher's computer and Web IRS 5 on the student's mobile device. The classroom needs to be equipped with an environment that can be connected to the Internet externally, usually with a wireless AP that is sufficient to give all mobile devices external connectivity so that teachers and students can connect and interact with each other. A whiteboard touch device (interactive whiteboard or LCD TV touchscreen) is recommended to show HiTeach 5's powerful whiteboard tools.
Teacher: Install HiTeach 5 (pro. authorization) on the computer and HiTA 5 TEAM Model Teacher App on the teacher's smartphone to integrate HiTeach wirelessly for teaching and teacher-student interaction.
• In class, students can use Web IRS 5 on a variety of mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, PCs) to learn, do interaction, and give feedback/response.
• After class, students use AClass ONE Learning Companion for after-class review, pre-class preview, and remedial learning.
Classroom: It is recommended to install a touch device (such as Haboard interactive whiteboard) for teachers to operate intuitively, and use HiTeach 5's powerful IWB tools to operate/write/mark with their hands.
Wireless network environment: Set an environment that can be connected to the Internet externally, usually with a wireless AP that is sufficient to give all mobile devices external connectivity so that teachers and students can connect and interact with each other.

Over 20 years of research and development experience
Based on theoretical and practical teaching applications
Tablets or other mobile devices can never produce benefits just by putting them in the classroom, they need to be combined with appropriate teaching models and support systems before they can become a catalyst for improving the effectiveness of teaching and learning. Many teachers find that without the assistance of the teaching system, these tools often become mere tools for surfing the Internet and reading, and do not integrate into the teaching process and strategies, which is a common difficulty faced by teachers that promote mobile learning.
The Mobile Smarter Classroom developed for many years is to solve the difficulties faced by these teachers, so that the teaching support system becomes the medium of interaction between teachers and students, and the mobile device becomes the learning companion and the private tutor of students.
Web IRS 5
Student Real-Time Interactive Response System
Web IRS is a student response system developed specifically for use on mobile devices. Students do not need to install any software, and they can use smartphones/tablets/computers, as long as there is a browser, to interact with teachers and give feedback without distance constraints. It achieves exclusive features of smarter classrooms: synchronous content, synchronous interaction, synchronous task, and synchronous test, allowing every student to express their opinions and ideas in real-time.
Students don't need to download any app! They can use computers, tablets, or smartphones (Both iOS or Android are available), and enter irs5.cc in browsers or scan QR code to use Web IRS. They can instantly interact with the teacher, answer IRS questions, and send pictures/audios/files.
Ways for students to connect to the smarter classroom using Web IRS:
Method 1. Enter the URL irs5.cc
in your browser, then enter the classroom code provided by HiTeach
Method 2. Scan QR code with smartphones or tablets
Web IRS allows teachers and students to interact with each other regardless of the limitation of distance. Students can instantaneously share their thoughts without the need to install any app. They can send messages and pictures with Web IRS.
Send Pictures Anytime and Anywhere
Both teachers and students can send pictures/pages to each other anytime/anywhere, making it easier and more convenient to teach. Also, HiTeach can quickly organize pictures and messages without the need to use other software.
A wide variety of test question types are supported
The administration and correction of assessments have always been a heavy workload for teachers, and with the online distance learning due to the pandemic, assessments have become an even greater challenge for frontline teachers.
HiTeach 5's Smarter Classroom Assessment effectively integrates multiple assessment modes and enables simultaneous use of both online teaching and offline classrooms. Its automatic correction function saves teachers a lot of time and allows them to improve their work efficiency effectively.
Mobile Smarter Classroom provides four synchronous teaching modules. These four refined smarter classroom tools, including Content, Interaction, Task, and Test, have been studied by the AI Sokrates data analysis system for many years, and as long as the functions are properly combined, they will have a magical teaching effect of enlightenment and wisdom.
Synchronous Interaction: Students are focused and teachers track learning status precisely
Can you believe it? You can ask student questions in class at any time without preparation in advance, and keep track of student learning status and statistics in real-time! With the new synchronous interaction features of HiTeach 5, you can perform synchronous feedback, real-time statistics, data utilization, and other high-performance synchronous interaction modes anytime and anywhere to fully track the learning status of each student online/on-site.
The synchronous interaction function that can be used by combining HiTeach 5 and Web IRS 5 is powerful, including single answer question, multiple answers question, true-false question, cloze question, and Buzz-in. These are the teaching questioning strategies that teachers are familiar with in the classroom. By pressing the function button, students can answer with Web IRS, and HiTeach will automatically collect data from the entire class. When the teachers press the statistic buttons, various feedback data and charts are presented, which can then be used for further discussion or follow-up questions.
1. Single Answer Question
2. Multiple Answers Question
3. True-False Question
4. Cloze Question
5. Buzz-in Interaction
Synchronous Task: Multi-interaction type
In the Mobile Smarter Classroom, synchronous audio, video, and data transmission technologies can be used to support the data interaction required in the classroom to enhance the quality and performance of the classroom. In addition, during the pandemic, it is also very suitable for synchronous lessons (also known as online synchronous learning, which are teaching activities in a video conferencing environment), which have a wide range of applications.
⦁ What is Synchronous Task?
Synchronous Task is a new function that combines HiTeach 5 and Web IRS 5. Teacher's task content (e.g. presentation, questions, or multimedia content) will be automatically displayed on the student's Web IRS. As the students are doing their works/tasks, HiTeach's work collection window provides an overview of each group or student's progress, sorted by chronological order, seat number, or grouping. Teachers can select them to do activities such as observation, comparison, mutual evaluation, praise, annotation, explanation, or sharing. ⦁ Task History Browsing
Teachers can turn on or off the submission switch for each task according to the task's need in HiTeach. For tasks that are not yet closed, students can use the task history browsing function to view their task/work history. They can also submit other work to update their work. ⦁ Multiple Task Types
When the teacher starts a synchronous task, he/she can choose the type of work to be submitted, including drawing/pictures, real-time audio recording, text, or multimedia files (PPT, Excel, video...), fully supporting learning and practice activities in synchronous lessons.
1. Work Collection: Drawing or Pictures
2. Work Collection: Real-Time Audio Recording
3. Work Collection: Multimedia Files (PPT, Excel, video...)
Synchronous Test: Effective analysis ⦁ Double the effect
Tests are great ways to summarize the learning results and to know the strengths and weaknesses. Before, paper tests are used mainly, but the process was complicated and time-consuming. Now, after teachers design test questions on IES Cloud, they can use them with HiTeach's SelfPace Test mode function, and students can answer through Web IRS. After the test, visual grade results will be displayed immediately, allowing teachers to do interactive reviews in real-time. Also, these data will be simultaneously uploaded to the cloud, which is extremely helpful for teachers to track student learning situations and for students to do remedial learning on their own.
Synchronous testing and quick automatic correction
When starting SelfPace Test mode, teachers will select an exam file and students can start answering the questions and control their own progress. During the process of answering, the progress of each student's answer will be displayed on the HiTeach. When the teacher ends the test, HiTeach will automatically correct and calculate the score
of each question (including single answer, multiple answers, true-false, cloze, and question set questions) and the total scores, and immediately display the correct rate of each question, the student total score, the grade analysis graph, and the test data for each question required for interactive review.
Interactive Review: Enhanced absorption
After the test is finished, the test results are immediately displayed, including the correct percentage, distribution charts, and score tables, as well as an interactive page for each question, which includes the test question, answering data, pie charts, and bar charts. Teachers can browse through the statistics and test difficulty to select the questions needed to be reviewed and do interactive review by using functions like SMART Pick-out, Flip Cards, or do differentiated teaching by sending different materials to students based on their learning status. This is a very efficient way to review tests.
Display each student's score
Show the correct rate of each question. Green: 70% or more, yellow: 50% or more, and red: 50% or less.
Score Distribution and Key Concept Radar Graph
Learning status analysis ⦁ Teaching students according to their aptitude
HiTeach will automatically upload all test data to the Team Model Cloud after the tests are completed, and the assessment data support the PLAYTOL Dynamic Assessment Analytics
(an optional feature of the Team Model Cloud), allowing teachers to access test question analysis, score analysis, diagnostic analysis, and remediation planning. Teachers can fully grasp the data and charts that are useful for understanding learning status analysis by each subject, all subjects, school year, and each test.
Synchronous Follow-up: In-depth understanding of the process behind the answer Synchronous Follow-up
is an excellent tool for teachers to see more of their students' thought processes and to create a change in thinking. In HiTeach 5, by linking data and teaching, Synchronous Interaction + Synchronous Task
, you can easily create a synchronous follow-up situation in the classroom. Using the single answer, multiple answers, true-false, and cloze question functions of Synchronous Interaction, all students' feedback data can be quickly collected, and then the teacher can use Synchronous Task to ask students to answer why, why not, or how they solved the problem based on the feedback data, providing synchronous feedback to the teacher's follow-up questions.
Extended application: Hybrid Learning (online+offline)
During the pandemic, Mobile Smarter Classroom solution is also very suitable for synchronous lessons (or online synchronous learning), which are teaching activities combined with a video conferencing environment. Whether it is synchronous lessons where all students are online, or a hybrid learning model where some students are in the classroom and some students are online, all can show the best teaching results.

It fully assists teachers in assessing the situation, effectively clarifies misconceptions, and inspires follow-up discussions
- Improve the interaction mode between teachers and students: Assist teachers in effectively mastering the fairness in interaction, so that all students have equal opportunities for learning and expression.
- Improve the fluency of teaching: The system encourages students to focus on the key points of learning, saving teaching time, and making classroom context interesting without losing control.
- Convenient for teachers to use: The system is simple to operate, so that teachers can focus on teaching, and teaching thoughts are not easily interfered by technological tools.
- Increase the diversity of teaching and focus on every child: Teachers can design questions to allow students to feedback and interact through option/text/image/audio/file and other mechanisms to increase the diversity and richness of teaching. Every student must respond, achieving paying attention to each child.
Students think fully and grades improve by 5-10 points
West Virginia University in the United States used IRS to conduct a two-year teaching research in the courses of the medical school, and found that IRS can significantly improve students' academic performance (about an average improvement of 5-10 points
). An experimental study on elementary science teaching at the National Central University in Taiwan also showed that the average performance of students in the IRS class was also better than that of the control group (about 7 points). It was also found that the standard deviation of the experimental group’s performance was significantly smaller than that of the control group’s students. (It means that there are more students in the control group with low learning effectiveness).
