In the context of rapidly advancing smart education systems, the effective management and optimization of modern classroom remain critical challenges. This research presents a novel methodology leveraging cloud and fog computing-based simulations, with a specific focus on the implementation of iFogSim. Empirical findings validate the efficacy of fog computing in monitoring classrooms, demonstrating significant improvements in performance metrics compared to traditional cloud computing architectures. Specifically, fog computing ensures remarkably low latency, with a mere 7 milliseconds, even with scalable integration across multiple classrooms. In contrast, cloud computing infrastructures exhibit considerably higher initial latencies, starting at 210 milliseconds, which further escalate with the increasing number of monitored classrooms. Furthermore, our analysis reveals substantially lower network overhead associated with fog computing, measuring at 5,231.8 kilobytes, in sharp contrast to the significantly higher network usage of 80,808 kilobytes observed with cloud computing solutions. These findings underscore the potential of fog computing as a promising solution for efficient and real-time management classroom in smart education environments.
