The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of the Smart Classrooms through interaction analysis of the given classroom. For an effective analysis, 5th graders in an elementary school had participated, the teacher had taught the same class twice, once in the traditional teaching and learning method, and the second class was carried out with the smart devices and smart teaching and learning methods applied from the ITLA System. Based on Flanders’s Interaction Analysis Category System, interaction between teacher and students were analyzed. The results of the experiments showed, Teacher’s indirection ratio and teacher’s question ratio were shown higher in Smart Classroom than non-system classroom. On the other hand, students’ talk ratio was shown almost the same. Teacher’s lecture ratio was analyzed at a lower frequency within the Smart Classroom than the non-system classroom. Therefore, Smart Classrooms proved more indirect class than non-system classroom. Finally, we can refer that Smart Classrooms have more positive effects on education than traditional classroom.
