Abstract

Information technologies continuously transform the educational landscape, while the dynamic labour market expects fresh graduates and talents ready for the fast-changing job requirements. Smart services, defined as da-ta-enabled and contextualized digital services, can propose new models for learning personalization and adaptation. However, the teachers proved to be essential in introducing the needed changes in the educational system. The present research aims to outline the role of smart services in educational transformation, supporting teachers to adopt personalized and student-oriented teaching strategies. The paper is structured as follows. Firstly, it outlines the specifics of the smart services and explores the teacher’s challenges in embracing the new educational roles and teaching methods. Then, the third section identifies how smart services can support teachers’ strategies for learning personalization and learning experiences differentiation. Last is pro-vided with complex individual and class dashboard models of learning indicators and analytics, evaluating smart services effectiveness.
