School learning management systems

Necessity is the mother of invention. During the Civil War, Thomas Alva Edison developed serious hearing problems which made him develop the carbon transmitter, a device that enhanced the audibility of the telephone by making it possible to transmit voices at higher volume and with more clarity.

Similarly, as the world evolves, businesses around the world evolve too owing to the necessity. One of the most dynamic sectors that demands upgradation at regular intervals is Education. As technology makes inroads in this space, schools across the globe now rely on it to a large extent; they perhaps now realise that 21st-century learning needs more than just ‘books’ and ‘curriculum’. They reckon that to keep up with the fast-evolving world and its culture, GenZ’s mode of education should transcend traditional education. Though eLearning, the latest wave in the education sector, brings a breath of novelty, it can also get complex and difficult resulting in slow or no growth of students. Mere eLearning cannot be relied upon to bring about a revolution in empowering the future generation.

Soon after, School Learning Management Systems made a swift entry in the education sector resolving conflicts that were jeopardising the interests of it. It organises eLearning content in one location, renders unlimited access to eLearning materials, tracks students’ progress and performance, reduces learning and development cost, etc. School Learning Management Systems did connect students with the teachers amid uncertainty, simplified the learning process, simplified curriculum, they, however, failed to render:

  • Strong self-motivation and time management skills in students
  • Highly organised and world-class curriculum
  • Communication skills
  • Dealing with each child uniquely
  • Well trained teachers
  • Emotional support
  • Seamless online assessment
  • Novel ways of imparting education
  • Engaged parents
  • Guaranteed results

 

Despite creating ripples in the education space, School Learning Management Systems did little for the underlying problems of this sector.

According to a Harvard study, “Although rapid advances in technology—along with increasing access to new technologies in schools—hold great potential for improving educational outcomes in typically developing children, these advances must be of high quality and responsibly implemented if they are to improve learning in todayʼs global educational landscape. Moreover, as digital learning options become increasingly ubiquitous, research is needed to document the impact of these modes of teaching and learning, in comparison to traditional teacher-student classroom interactions.”

How LEAD School is the best kind of School Learning Management System?

LEAD School is the face of the evolving education system of the country. It strongly advocates the need for a few amendments required in this sector to prevent it from a nosedive. With every aspect devised carefully, School Learning Management Systems resolve conflicts of every stakeholder, especially amid such uncertain times.

Now, what is it that LEAD School guarantees? To start with, 

A comprehensive curriculum for every subject, extra-curricular activities, performing and visual art, yoga; personalised attention; easy to use interface, and engaged parents with the help of student/parent app integration for at-home learning. 

 Besides the above-mentioned offerings, LEAD School also renders:

  • Impeccable English for kids
  • World-class teachers
  • Top-notch pedagogy
  • Guaranteed result 

 

School learning management systems

Every class in pre-primary follows an integrated curriculum consisting of cognitive and development domains of literacy, numeracy, EVS, aesthetic and creative expression, moto skills development, and social and emotional development.

For students from class 1-8, LEAD offers a level-based programme called ELGA. It has 5 components:

  • Phonics
  • Whole words
  • Reading and listening comprehension
  • Grammar
  • Writing and speaking expression

 

Assessments at the LEAD School help students cover their learning gaps before progressing to the next unit. Every unit has a unit-end assessment which might be written, oral, or both. There are three big exams, the beginning of year assessment, BOY,- in the first year of partnership, all students in SKG and above undertake BOY for ELGA and Maths. In subsequent years, only new admission take BOY. In the middle of the year assessment, MOY is done after the completion of 4 units. The end of year assessment, EOY is done after the completion of all units in a year. The unit end assessment, the MOY, and EOY are common to all the different sub-schools.

Besides this, a seamless connection between parents and teachers can be ensured with LEAD School. A dedicated app for parents helps them being a participant in their child’s success. LEAD School’s progress tracker and open communication channels have facilitated student learning journey in this 21st-century educational landscape. With the help of LEAD School’s integrated online platform, parents can access their child’s performance reports, have access to videos for further learning, have a plan for home practice, and can monitor the pictures from classwork.

LEAD School understands that modern-day education is much more than connecting learners with the educator. Where School Learning Management Systems fail to make a school 100% complete, LEAD School fills in those gaps to make a school a complete entity.
