Smart schools

Technology in the health sector has leapt where saving lives, diagnosing diseases, and extending life expectancy has become easier than before. Similarly, technology in education has opened up avenues for students that otherwise remain excluded. History says technological revolutions have changed business patterns, leading to broader societal changes and economic development. As a result, the medium with which students learn or have learned these years is witnessing a massive evolution. The burden of preparing the current generation for a future that doesn’t exist yet lies with the school fraternity.

In 2017, the McKinsey Global Institute estimated that “60 per cent of occupations had at least 30 per cent of constituent work activities that could be automated by 2030—meaning that as many as 375 million workers globally would have to switch occupations or acquire new skills by 2030.”

Holistic learning to cater to the future 

Schools need to evolve and rise above the primary function of imparting knowledge for the simple reason that it’s not enough to cater to the future that’s on the anvil. Cramming what’s in the curriculum, getting done with it is not all needed to excel in the future. However, schools that help new-age children with holistic learning will thrive in comparison to traditional schools.

Smart schools have surfaced globally to take care of the most ignored aspect of schooling—holistic learning. Besides disseminating knowledge when the sector is disrupted, smart schools also ensure that students develop skills to prosper in the future, such as -creative and critical thinking skills, personal skills, social skills, scientific skills, information technology skills, etc. Being a low experiment sector for decades, online learning was considered a stigma. Fortunately, the pandemic has made the sector realise that the redundancies buried deep down in the industry will lead to its doom, and the proper steps taken at the right time can lead to its success. 

Smart School ERP has revolutionised the sector in unimaginable ways.
