Latest Innovations to make education more accessible and interactive for students in the current pandemic situation

The unprecedented times called for innovative ways to let the lantern of learning blaze. We introduced the licensed version of the Google Classroom, G-Suite, in our school. Our teachers were trained to practice and employ cutting-edge teaching tools/software like Nearpod, Padlet, Mentimeter, Quizizz, Edpuzzle, etc., making our virtual classrooms enjoyable and interactive. We are now moving ahead to inculcate blended/hybrid learning at our school.

Our take on STEM-based education

STEM education has brought an exemplary shift in the learning styles of students. They have begun to question, experiment, observe, analyze, conclude, infer and then design leading them to learn vitally better and more profoundly. Furthermore, other essential skills like problem-solving, critical thinking and design thinking are augmented by providing students a platform to explore the transdisciplinary tasks through annual celebrations of STEM Fests.

Our thoughts on NEP 2020

NEP 2020 focuses on developing competencies and enhancing skills through a transdisciplinary approach and experiential learning strategies more than content delivery. NEP envisages an equitable and vibrant society by providing high-quality education to all and making AIL (Art Integrated Learning) a part of the teaching-learning process.

Our Vision for the future of Education

The overall dimension of the distance learning environment and the advent of newly adopted teaching tools will stimulate a paradigm shift in the future of education. Schools will soon become a nerve center of innovative pedagogies through hybrid and blended learning, amplifying community participation, Art Education, experiential learning; therefore, we envisage a transformative and life-changing educational journey ahead.
