The rapid advancement of information technology and ongoing education reforms have introduced smart education as an innovative teaching model. This study aims to explore the application and impact of smart education platforms in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) within four junior high schools in China. Through a detailed analysis of questionnaire responses from English language teachers, the study investigates the impact of these platforms on teaching practices. Results indicate that using smart teaching platforms has increased teachers’ engagement, motivation, and satisfaction. Additionally, teachers have reported a deeper understanding of smart education concepts, improved practical teaching skills, and overall professional development. Despite these benefits, the study highlights the challenges of implementing smart education platforms. The findings suggest that while smart education platforms can potentially enhance TESOL effectiveness, further improvements, and extensive research are necessary to optimize their use fully.
