Abstract: In the context of smart classrooms (SC), one of the sources that can enrich data collection, analysis, real-time feedback, and decision making are students' emotions. This research tried to analyse the knowledge published over the last 5 years about the effectiveness of emotion recognition (ER) interventions in classrooms. A total of 214 articles were chosen based on the search terms and analysed according to the PRISMA statement, and finally 39 were selected. The findings of the interpretation of facial image-based ER have been upgraded with rapid and power progress of deep learning technology. As emotions can be detected using different sort of input, such as speech, facial expressions, videos, messages, and emoticons, the main point is tracking emotions while the lesson is taking place so as to warn the teacher. It is of utmost interest if one seeks to improve the student's academic performance, improve teaching, and understand students' learning behaviour.

Abstract: Scientific literature shows that colour has an enormous impact on education, at all educational stages, and is universally understood. Colour is a fundamental part of learning environments but its influence on learning processes needed to be systematically classified. As far as the authors know, this is the first study to categorise the various cognitive and affective-social processes that are influenced by colours and their shades. In the 21st century, with the rise in educational technology and concepts such as smart classroom or intelligent learning environments, a new perspective also opens up for colour in classroom environments. “Dynamic colour” can be enhanced thanks to the possibilities of coloured light with LED technology. Few studies have been made on the issue, but those that have belong more to fields such as interior design. This study shows its future potential but should be followed by further research to demonstrate its possibilities in the field of education.
