Smart Class

Over the last few decades, everything has changed in our lives with the all pervasive intervention of technology. However classrooms have remained untouched by technology. The classrooms that our grandparents went to are exactly the kind of classrooms our children study in. Chalk and blackboard, a packed classroom, text books, regimented curriculum, a teacher painstakingly explaining abstract concepts with the limited tools at her disposal.

Smartclass brings about a complete transformation in classrooms. The Science teacher while explaining how a DNA replicates is able to show the class a 3D animation of the DNA replication process on a large screen. She can explain the fine points of the process, zoom in to show the relevant visuals, freeze and annotate when and where she needs to emphasize. Similarly the History teacher shows the class a virtual walk through of the Harappan Civilisation. Uncovering the relevant parts step by step as a part of her lesson plan , while the Geography teacher shows a virtual Block mountain being formed…all with engaging animations, colors, music, sounds and voice. The teachers gain complete attention and interest of every child in the class. Every child gets a visual input on how it happens and the concepts are well understood and internalised.

It provides tools and content for interactive self-paced learning by students, as well as rich-media presentations for teacher-led classroom learning.

Smartclass is for teachers and students over the web, and will also be installed on the school’s local server for faster and more reliable access to the content.

The content available consists of pedagogically sound and visually rich curriculum resources mapped and customized as per the school's Scheme of Work. This content will be streamed into the classroom and shown by teachers in the classroom to make abstract concepts real.
