Please share USPs of your digital classrooms over other players existing in this domain.
Our digital classroom package offers the USPs of – content, innovative technology, Control system and support for teachers.
Out Content is mapped to syllabus of all boards such as CBSE, ICSE, IGCSE and 23 state boards. We have innovative technology framework, which allows content to play in classrooms irrespective of connection to server. Our remote control system enables user to control 95 percent features with only 5 buttons. Therefore, teacher is free to walk across the classroom even while using this system.
We provide end-to-end support for the teacher from lesson planning to assessment of students to generating student report cards along with high degree of flexibility, thus providing the user an option to create lessons, syllabi, etc as per needs.

How can institutions leverage their existing infrastructure to upgrade to digital classrooms?
The TeachNext solution provides everything required to set up a digital classroom in a school, if at all a school has existing infrastructure, such as a computer, audio visual system, interactive whiteboard, etc, we can install the TeachNext server and enable these computers to connect to it to stream content. eachNext provides an end-to-end solution right from cabling to setting up of the server system in the school.
Please shed light on new innovations.
Personalised learning at individual space is the next big frontier. Currently, institutions pay the same attention to each student, and each child learns at the same pace. Self-learn systems operate at a different pace from the classroom. The next big move will be a technology- enabled, integrated system in which the student is at the centre. Students will be able to move from device to device, choose their learning style, and excel at understanding the concept rather than just the words. For this reason Next Education has launched a series of Labs which help schools enable this for students.
This involves a big attitudinal shift. Schools need to be prepared to implement various new aspects of learning – BYOD (bring your own device), multiple intelligences, big-data across various products, and an integrated ERP that allows the school to collate data across multiple systems.
