Smart Education is the influence of diverse technologies (Combinatorial Optimization, Machine Learning, Big Data, data visualisation, Internet of Education Things, Learning analytics, and others) to enhance the quality of education. In other words, Smart Education is the process of optimally managing human, economic and technological resources from educational institutions and research centres. Smart Education is part of the Smart Society (a component of a Smart City). The Smart Education components are the Internet of Education Things (Wireless Sensor Networks, RFID Technology), management of the education physical, infrastructure, smart classroom, smart campus, smart learning, Learning analytics, Smart Analysis, data science, Education Impact, and Educational Policy. This paper is a guide for understanding Smart Education components by presenting a survey of the characteristics, taxonomy (Education-Hard problems and Education-Soft problems), smart education indicators, history and future trends.
