It is said that evolution occurred over millions of years leading to a lot of gradual changes. But if one were to map the changes that have occurred over the last hundred years, it has changed the world in a way that is beyond imagination. It is difficult to grapple with the changes that have occurred even in the last five years. From relativity theory to discover of the milky way and a man setting foot on the moon; discoveries in the field of biology and medicine, inventing drugs for previously incurable diseases; the invention of motorcycles to hyperloop, telephones to wireless technology and cloud computing, drones & even self-driving cars. The list goes on and on as inventions and discoveries are taken place even as we speak.
On a similar note, describe a story and it is up to the imagination of the listener to picture. But present a visual picture and it helps in comprehending the information in a far better manner. As the proverb goes - “A picture is better than thousand words”. Today, picturizing has become easier, thanks to the advancement in technology, with CAD, 3D and 4D technology.
The boon of such scientific advancement is its applicability in all spheres of life. The field of education and learning has gained immensely from the various developments. Even a decade or two ago, learning took place via the plain chalk and talk method. Teachers were forced to use materials that were available at disposal to explain concepts and impart knowledge. However, smart technology has resulted in better learning with the help of smart boards, high-tech laboratories, and 3D printing and so on.
Samsidh, as an institution, places the highest importance in adapting the latest technologies in aiding our students’ growth. A whole host of technology has been integrated into our teaching curriculum at all our centres in Bengaluru. We have a fully networked educational environment with internet access at all points throughout the school campus. Some of the other adaptations include:
- Internet Access in all classrooms to aid learning through Smart Boards
- Smart Class – is an interactive medium of learning which includes smart boards, projectors etc. This provides the students with an experiential learning experience that etches the concepts in their minds in a better way. Usage of photos, maps, graphs, flowcharts, animated videos are all attractive ways of holding the pupils’ attention. Smartboards also help teachers in accessing the internet to project more videos for further explanations or clarifications of doubts
- Computer Lab with the high-speed network – with a seating capacity of 35 students in a lab, personal attention is given to each and every student. Equipped with the latest software, the lab has high-speed internet network, children are allowed to work on their practical and project work.
- Active Website and Active Facebook – taking advantage of the presence of the website and social media, parents are kept updated constantly and instantly with all the latest happenings in the school
- Parental Portal (ACE) – to keep our parents informed about the overall development of their wards, the school has adopted a comprehensive school management system. This acts as a platform through which parents can access the child’s attendance, assessment results, health card etc. The portal also consists of general information like the school calendar, important announcements etc. The portal is accessible 365*27 and on any platform and any medium. Regular SMS updates are also dispatched
- The Labs – the school also has a math lab, language lab, composite science lab which houses various kinds of latest types of equipment for students to grasp better.
Thus, all our learning centres have been transformed to increase cyberliteracy, towards which the world is inching in this age. Adoption of smart technology has helped our students not only in an effective method but also efficiently. Usage of tablets, phones and other devices for learning has helped save time and efforts while making it interesting and fun.
