Since March 2020, nothing has been the same, especially in the education industry. Traditional classes got replaced by online classrooms, and school management became a nightmare. When social distancing was not a norm, conducting classes or managing a school was not a gruesome task, but the global pandemic has put the traditional framework of how learning is conducted in schools or how a school functions in question.
Education ministries in different countries adopted online modules to keep learning a continuous process. While learning did get saved from a sharp plunge, managing the school efficiently still looked like a distant dream. Stuck in an uncharted boat, uncertainty and confusion prevailed among the school owners. Since the school closure timeline remains unknown, a robust structure to run a school smoothly and conduct its day-to-day functions is required. In response to COVID-19, education systems must be strengthened to ensure they overcome adversity and stay resilient to even future risks.
A report by Microsoft says, “The response to the coronavirus has demonstrated how technology can help transform how we teach and learn. But the push for change started long before the pandemic struck, and it will go on long after the threat subsides. For years, policymakers have been exploring new transformative approaches to K-12 education that go far beyond just online lessons at home.”
Can school owners get a respite?
School functioning in the current scenario is challenging. But since technology has made its way in the sector, management can be easily taken care of. School management app is the new-age solution for the disruption caused in the sector. Let’s look at a few of its advantages:
- Enhanced productivity
School management app boosts the productivity of the school across departments. From maintaining records to achieving accuracy, everything can be done with a single click. When less time is spent in managing manual tasks, the productivity of the school gets boosted.
- Access from anywhere
With the help of the school management app, owners can access any detail about the school from anywhere, anytime. In a traditional setup, an owner must be present in the school to get an update from principals and teachers to know what is happening. Now, with just a single click, day to day functions are traceable in real-time from anywhere.
- Reduction in workload
School management app brings down manual jobs substantially. When the management has ample time in hand, other functions that require human intervention such as maintaining relationships, promoting schools, ensuring things are smooth in every class can be achieved.
- Working in an online/offline mode
Now that the education sector has been disrupted once, it must prepare itself for any such future uncertainty. To do so, a model that’s viable for any disruption where classes can be conducted remotely and then switch back to classroom learning once possible without any learning loss is required. The school management app gives an option to school owners to run a school without any hitch.
