Samsung technology helps create future classrooms where anyone can learn to do anything. In future classrooms, anyone can pursue their passions for knowledge and bypass any physical limitations with technology-based learning, which may previously have been difficult. Samsung envisions a future of education where even students who live in rural, remote and isolated areas can interact with other students as well as subject experts around the world to enhance their learning, and even students with developmental challenges can learn to maximize their capabilities through bespoke education, utilizing digital devices.
Since 2012, Samsung Smart School has been supporting schools in rural and remote areas that lack digital educational resources. Since 2016, the program has reached out to various educational institutions, including hospital schools, multicultural schools and special needs schools. Samsung Smart School provides selected institutions with Samsung smart devices as well as tailored future education models and technology solutions to begin a real change in classroom learning. There are numerous examples how Smart School has brought about tangible changes.
A small school in a remote, isolated area with only five students which was once at a risk of being closed down, has been transformed into an education hub in town with an increase in the number of enrolled students and much improved student performances.

There is a school in South Korea near the Demilitarized Zone
(DMZ) between the two Koreas. The school is isolated from other
cities and centers of commerce. However, this area is no exception

interact with students from other countries through digital
devices and tech-based learning and helping them find their
passions in class, hopefully leading to a their dream jobs one
Education should be equally accessible to everyone. Samsung
Electronics has made consistent efforts to improve and innovate
educational environments across the globe over the past 10 years,
thinking about the future. Samsung Smart School is a model for the

Also, Samsung Future Teacher Award is given to teachers who dedicated themselves and worked behind the scenes to innovate education.
