When COVID-19 hit the planet, experts warned the education sector about its devastating effects, including its pervasive impact on social order and the economy. In the face of it, thousands of schools in India fear a shutdown over financial constraints. The primary source of income of private schools’ teachers, including the owners, have been blocked. Moreover, as the fee from the parents took a dip, school authorities are unable to pay salaries or rent, leaving the sector in ambiguity.
Parents who remain unconvinced about the reliability of online learning shirk from paying the school fee. Though online learning was certainly better than “nothing,” gaining parents' trust remains difficult. However, it doesn't have to be this way. One of the major economic drivers of any country, the education sector, must evolve to cater to dynamic needs. Though significant scale school dismissals/closures are considered the best to decrease unnecessary infection, effective schooling can now happen from home — thanks to technological advancements.
What can be done?
To avoid schools suffering from substantial financial losses, they must think of unconventional ways to make learning better and resilient. Until parents are not convinced that their child's education is worth their spending, they will have doubts. So what can school owners do? For years school owners have been aware of the power of technology in education, yet they chose the traditional teacher-led classroom model. Unfortunately, this lack of experimentation led to the sector's fall when subjected to the unprecedented crisis.
Integrated solutions that support a hybrid model, have a student-centred approach, and offer a collaborative environment that appeals to 21st-century visual learners, will go a long way. Additionally, this solution makes smart classrooms that lead to responsible learning and encourages students to apply knowledge to real-world problems. Technology has allowed the sector to build back better.
Smart classrooms also enable school owners with crucial functions that give them an edge over the others that helps them increase their overall school revenue:
- Quick monitoring of school functions
- Real-time performance of teachers and students
- Streamlining of daily functions
- Quality learning resources
- Resources to guide teachers to conduct efficient classes
Let the COVID-19 crisis be an opportunity for schools to augment new teaching and learning models for a more innovative and immersive experience.
