Increase in the use of portable and personalized devices like smartphone, tablet, etc., that has changed the way of traditional interaction in face-to-face communication. This work is to explore the popularity of these devices in an affirmative way to enhance the classroom interaction. In the present classroom, even with the use of multimedia demonstration of educational content, it is difficult to set up an interactive one-to-one relation between a teacher and students. With the affordable self-paced learning platforms students are already equipped with the content to be discussed in the classroom; thus, making it difficult to maintain the integrity and interest level of a classroom beyond a certain time. To maintain pace with the latest technology that pre-feeds and provided on-demand knowledge into the student population, we are proposing a BYOD-based platform to increase the interaction of students in classroom by a one-to-one interaction relation with teacher. This can be summarized as a computer-mediated predictive analysis of students interest that may allow the teacher to steer the classroom interest for catering to every students individual needs. As most of higher classes students move with their devices, we propose here a framework to utilize the advent of BYOD to increasing the formative learning and assessment of student interest to avert the boredom of monotonous learning in classroom.
