In smart classrooms intelligent systems are embedded in the learning environment. The implementation of these systems is widely accepted to introduce a more personalized learning experience, but the educational context has yet not been fully scrutinized. The examined approaches fail to capture the complexity of the learning experience and underdetermine the pedagogical aspect. Therefore, directions are indicated and discussed to clarify the educational context of technological implementations.
