Mumbai-based edtech company LEAD School, today announced the introduction of ‘hybrid school system’ for 2021 academic year which will empower schools, teachers, students as well as parents adopt to the ‘new normal’ of learning.
With the introduction of this system, LEAD School becomes India’s first and only company to provide this unique solution which will enable schools to deliver uninterrupted quality learning both online or offline and at home or in school, while using world-class teaching pedagogies.
The ongoing pandemic has adversely impacted the education sector across the globe. While Government and educators have been yearning for pre-covid classrooms and restoration of normalcy, they have not been able to successfully come back with suitable solutions to ensure continuity of learning.
The Hybrid School System makes it easier for schools to monitor student’s performance, gives an option to switch between school modes (offline/online/both), lets the schools decide the days on which students will attend online class or physical school, add new subjects, and allocate teachers per classroom. Schools can also make use of the pre-set hybrid time-tables and operate schools either on alternate days, half week basis or customise schedule for weekdays.
At the same time, it equips teachers with a teacher tablet which is a one-stop solution for lesson plans, audio-visual resources, and training resources. It empowers parents with a Parent App that gives them information on homework, attendance, marks and unit progress. It will also allow students to have a single view of their Hybrid time-table, making it possible for them to attend live classes daily, attempt quizzes, and also ask doubts in real-time.
LEAD School Co-founder and CEO Sumeet Mehta said, “Our mission has been to provide uninterrupted, quality education to our students through the pandemic. With schools opening in a staggered and partial manner, teachers, principals, parents and students – all need a system of schooling that runs across online-offline, that is seamless between at home and in school. We are confident that LEAD School’s Hybrid System will not only deliver high-quality learning in all circumstances, but also prevent any learning loss caused due to frequent interruptions.”
In the post-lockdown world, schools need to work together with parents, communities, education departments, and local governments to create safe and healthy environments of learning for students, teachers, and staff. A post-lockdown world is going to look completely different from what we are used to seeing.
