As technology advances, certain “narrowly defined” terminology aspects, initially highlighted by name, have been blended into the general field of educational technology. Initially narrowly defined in the semantic sense, “virtual learning” meant entering the environmental simulation in a virtual world, for example, treating posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Indeed, a “virtual curriculum” means a curriculum where all or at least an important part is delivered by the Internet. “Virtual” is used extensively to illustrate courses that do not teach directly in the classroom, but people learn to go to the physical classroom through alternative modes that can conceptually be “virtually” associated with classroom instruction. Virtual training, therefore, represents a kind of distance learning that delivers course content in a variety of ways, such as course management applications, multimedia resources, and video conferencing. Virtual and mock learning opportunities, such as games or dissections, provide students with the opportunity to link classroom content to real-life situations.
The learning content is around the learner who is pervasive in the object and is not aware of the learning process. Smart learning is the combination of ubiquitous access to digital resources and learning opportunities at various places and at various times, with adaptive learning using individual interfaces and resources and personally differentiated education. Smart learning is a component of smart city concepts.
