The recent innovative technologies have dramatically changed the future of humanity. There are many pros & cons of this excessive impact of technology on our lives. The main goal behind the advancement of these technologies was to increase our day to day efficiency. At a larger scale, it aimed on more productivity from the industrial zones, alleviation of poverty and improve life index of people. This era of smart society, which is a result of investing huge amount of resources on IT Infrastructure of Smart Cities to automate life of its citizens with a quest for perfection has raised the bars for competence level required in all walks of life. The students of Smart Societies of the future will be seeking state of the art knowledge platforms and teaching aids that would be interactive and effective for attaining knowledge. On the other hand, the teachers of this smart era would have to enhance their knowledge, teaching skills and expertise as per the demands and needs of these students. The educationists would have to educate these students to deal and compete with machines (e.g. in Industry 4.0 where robots will be replacing workers at different levels of industry and eventually will totally replace human workforce). This is essentially a paradigm shift that requires non trivial forms of teaching and learning methods for preparing the students to meet the needs of increasingly complex digitally driven AI based Smart Societies. We discuss these challenges of the Smart Societies and their possible solutions by positively introducing these new technologies in pedagogy, curriculum design, ICT skills, fast learning, technology oriented and outcome based educational environment, where student will not feel any change while moving from classroom to the industry.
