Insights in School Learning

There have been numerous scientific studies done on the learning process of students. The reason behind this effort is that a good understanding of learning helps us in creating optimum curriculum. It also helps teachers in defining the right strategies to be employed in the classroom to get effective learning outcomes. Different boards like CBSE and ICSE have also made efforts over a period of time to impart this training to teachers, hoping this will result in better student results.

The 10 points below is a summary of a lot of this research to help schools and teachers use learning management systems and integrate school applications to achieve these objectives easily.

  1. Learning is a process that involves self-work, errors, reflection on errors, and refinement of solutions and strategies of solutions.
  2. If teachers can involve and think consciously about the learning material helps students be attentive, build and connect learning, and make meaning and its applications easily understood.
  3. Communicating high learning expectations and setting challenging learning tasks for students helps each student reach their potential. A few modules in TutMe can really help teachers use this.
  4. To help students retain learning, repeat practice of concepts help strengthen memory and also helps students apply these learnings into daily life..

5.If the same concept is taught by using multiple type of content, presented in different forms and mediums at different times help students learn better. The video lectures in TutMe help meet this requirement specifically.

  1. It is important to set the context right by explaining the objective of learning any concept. A clearly defined application helps student develop an interest in learning and gives better learning outcome.
  2. It is imports t that there is an enriching environment created for student learning. An environment that involves parents and thereby help students feel safer and comfortable improves learning. School Management applications like TutMe help achieve this objective.
  3. Collaboration and social interaction can be powerful learning experiences because they encourage deeper processing and engage the ‘social brain.’
  4. Students’ physical well-being, including nutrition, sleep, and exercise, impacts learning.
  5. The classroom environment including the teacher behaviour, the light and temperature and props used affect the learning tremendously.

While it looks very simple to use these approaches in the classroom, the fact is that most of the teachers and schools fail in implementing these, unless thought through very consciously. All this has to be thought through during curriculum planning and integrated into the lecture plans. Initially someone beyond the teacher needs to review the lecture plan prepared by a teacher to help her achieve this objective.

School Management Software in India

I work as a consultant for schools in India and I keep coming across products for schools. I have seen and experienced schools working with various softwares. Most of the softwares have been legacy system based and have failed to fulfil the basic premise of data security and consistent performance. In this context, I was pleasantly surprised by a recent product in amongst school management softwares. This product is aptly named as TutMe. I recommended it to a school as I liked the UI but with positive experiences there, I have now recommended it to a lot many schools and am happy about it.

So why I liked this product. First, as I mentioned above, it has the cleanest UI amongst various school softwares. It is very easy and simple to use and very relatable. It clearly shows a great thought which has gone into defining the product. The system is very stable and it makes the entire experience of using it wonderful. Whether, it is taking attendance or studying the pattern of student-wise attendance, the graphical representation is wonderful. The attention to detail in design is something which stands out everytime one uses it. There is no other software available for schools which helps management as much as this one.

The school management has always looked for flexibility and reliability with data security in any software. This product meets this requirement perfectly. The encryption of data gives user the comfort while a great support team customises the product to a great extent. Whether a school has 100 students or 10000, TutMe school management software meets the challenges very easily. The stability of this software is another feature which makes it the best school software in India, currently. It never fails and clever tweaks to allow user to get comfort while looking for data makes it easy for user.

So use TutMe if you are a school owner and make your school management simple and comfortable.

How to Teach Maths Using a School Management Software

In India, schooling has traditionally focused heavily on the Knowledge part, with pedagogy heavily relying on rote memory. This is true even for subjects like Maths. However, recently, Skills have begun to gain more importance in education. The key to making learning both effective and engaging is making your students understand that the learning has value. The worst thing that can happen in the teaching–learning experience is for the students to wonder why are they learning something.

The tough part is how can a teacher fit all this in a class room session. You can use technology to make your work easy. You can use school management software like TutMe to assign study material or evoke enquiry. The assessment and homework ensures you always track the progress of your students.

Everything you teach should have a clear value, that’s important.

In Maths in particular, knowledge would be stuff like numbers, formulas, theorems, equations, etc. Skills would be the stuff that students then have to do with the knowledge, for example adding, comparing, differentiating, etc. Finally, application is when they would need to do this in real life, what problems it would help them solve or what new outcomes it can help them realise.

These examples have been given here with the basic assumption that the person reading this article doesn’t have to be a maths expert. Somebody with a deeper knowledge of Maths than normal should be able to fit more concepts into the basic model.

Once you have your Knowledge, Skill and Application for each lesson you want to teach, get as many real life examples as you can to demonstrate the principles you’re teaching, and get the students to practise by solving real world problems.

Maths is best taught by connecting it to day to day life. For example, adding a bill, keeping your daily accounts or helping find out the speed required to travel a distance in a given time.

We are living in a fast paced world. The demands on our time is increasing to a level where we struggle to take out time to do most important tasks also. In such a situation technology has been a great saviour. With various apps to help improve efficiency and transfer of information without manual intervention has helped immensely. A tracking system for student transport has made life less stressful for parents, specially the ones who are in nuclear families.

It, therefore, helps avoid situation where one doesn’t know as if a vehicle is getting late. It allows you to be just in time in the place to receive your ward, taking the stress out of the process. As this app comes bundled with a lot of other useful functionalities for schools, parents and students, it makes it that much more useful.

But how does the Bus tracking app work? It starts with installation of a GPS device in the school vehicle or any other vehicle. The GPS device is tracked through standard google app and is shown on the google map basis the coordinates for it a particular time. These coordinates (also known as lat-long) help track the vehicle at any any point in time. The scheduled stops where a student has to embark or disembark is preset with the help of coordinates of that particular location. It helps system to show as to how fas a vehicle is from a scheduled stop at a particular time.

In the endeavour to provide an all encompassing solution to schools and parents, TutMe has been designed to take care of this small yet significant part of the entire process. The state of the art technology ensures that almost any device with a GPS capability can be easily paired and work efficiently and effectively. One can even track the vehicle using the mobile device of the driver.

The transport module in TutMe has many features and this is just one of these. The module also helps keep a track of the vehicle, its fuel consumption, the details of the driver etc also. These are increasingly becoming important as state governments are increasingly making this as a responsibility of schools. We are trying to help schools manage all these without the stress involved.

School management system – Traditional vs. software

Schools have existed ever since the early days of civilization. Learning has been a critical link in the development of the human being. With time, the character of educational institutes also changed. This was necessary for 2 reasons – 1. Number of students, 2. New developments.

Different countries and continents have moved differently on this path. While the western world moved from private tutors to organized schools and universities, Indian schooling evolved differently.

However, in today’s world, it is impossible to manage a school without a School Management Software. Such software ensures that teachers and administrators can manage all their works smoothly and efficiently and ensure complete communication with parents and students. The essentials of today’s school management systems is to have Attendance process and a fully integrated fee system. The schools who use such software, ensure they can do more while using much fewer resources. Can you imagine managing a school with 5000 students managing everything by using traditional methods of writing every detail on a register.

Modern schools have evolved as large branch-based structures. These are not only multi-city but multi-country operations. Managing the local requirements while ensuring certain standards to be followed everywhere needs strict controls. The same can be achieved only through a strategic integration at a macro level. If this is not done properly, the branding of the school will be battered and the school will struggle to meet its ambitions.

The schools, therefore, should evolve as modern organizations have evolved running multi-country, multi-brand operations. The school management systems (software) like TutMe help achieve just that. These softwares not only help schools manage and orient themselves properly but make all routine works simple and enjoyable. The improved communication with parents helps improve the academic performance of students. Parent involvement also ensures lower incidents of indiscipline, which is quite an issue across educational institutes. Such systems also help schools organise their internal teams much better. The work-flow for staff improves ensuring everyone in the system understands the requirements they have to meet and critical requirements are known in time. All this goes on to contribute to establishment of great institutes which create a legacy that survives for hundreds of years.

School Management App in Noida

Gurgaon is emerging as a major hub for education. Haryana in general has remained deprived of good schools and universities, but new schools and universities are being setup in Gurgaon, which meet these requirements. The parents in this city are also very well educated and most of the students come from nuclear families. This results in high demand for information of what is happening in the school regularly.

To this objective, the school app can play a very significant role. A school app helps schools connect with parents on a regular basis in a positive way. The schools can share all the information that a parent needs at home – whether it is related to what has been taught in the class on the day or what assignment has been given. The tests can be announced here, so that the parents ensure students are well prepared on the day of test. Performance metrics help parents understand their child’s performance vis-a-vis the class performance.

As it is clear from this, School Management App in Noida like TutMe are highly needed in all modern schools, specifically the schools, where parents are young and tech-savvy. That is why schools in towns like Gurgaon and Noida are increasingly using these school apps.

How can TutMe help schools help students

Every student is unique and they all learn at a different pace. Each of them have a different learning style and a classroom teaching where you can’t offer different methods to different students is sure to fail. However, for a teacher it is impossible to offer personalised learning solution to every child. That’s where school app like TutMe offers help.

 TutMe has a very method to share digital learning resources with students and parents. There are library resources which have been created for educators to check and assign to the class. As an educator does it, the students and parents are notified about it and they can go through the details. That’s where an educator can make the difference.

school management app in noida,K12 school erp in Gurgaon

 Assume that you have a class of 40 students with about 25 students at almost the average learning level of the class, 5 students are much ahead of the class and another 10 students typically are behind the class learning level. As a teacher, you would be teaching at average learning level of the class. However, if you can assign some challenging material from the TutMe library to select group of students who are ahead of the class learning level, you create reason for them to remain engaged and learn advanced methods. Similarly, you can assign some material on the topics you have already taught in the class to students and assign it to the ones who are falling behind the average level of class, they can be encouraged to keep learning instead of losing interest as they have not been able to grasp what is being taught.

 This is quite like your examination paper setting, where most of the questions are set so that average student in the class can answer those. However, one always puts a set of questions in the exam paper to stretch the best students in the class. Furthermore, with regular detailed comments on student performance which can be updated in the app, parents could be kept involved with the educational development of the child. An approach where educator and parent work in tandem to help a student learn have been seen to be doing well across schools.

 The technology used in TutMe is child focussed to ensure better learning outcomes and an overall development of the child. The more a school communicates with the students and parents, the more it contributes to their development.

7 Teaching Methods Indian schools must use

Education, like any other industry in India, has been growing on the back of a young population and over all effort to improve literacy. Traditional pedagogical techniques, based on a teacher explaining a topic and students noting down, is still the most common method of teaching. However, educators and schools should make all efforts to develop curiosity and creativity in students. This is a dire need, if we want our kids to be prepared for future jobs.

School software,Educational institute software in delhi,

A number of different teaching methods have been tried by different schools. However, most of the schools are stuck, as they believe that these teaching techniques are only for so-called elite schools. I personally believe that even the smallest schools should be able to use the modern teaching methods to inculcate appropriate abilities in kids. I have discussed 7 such teaching methods below, which integrate simple and cheap technology into education for better outcomes.

  1. Case Studies : This method is based on trying to find a solution of real-life cases through brainstorming, group discussion and innovative ideas. This technique was often used in my MBA class to analyze real cases experienced by companies in the past. And I am sure this can be used to impart learning in a much better way even to youngsters. It, of course, will require some pre-work by the teacher to connect the concept to be taught in the class with real-life situations where this concept shows up or is used. Experts at TutMe can help subscribing educational institutes do this effectively.
  2. Flipped activity – This is the simplest yet most effective thing you can do in your class. So what does the flipped activity mean – The Flipped Classroom activity involves encouraging students to prepare for a lesson before the same is dicussed/ taught in the class. Thus, the class creates an involving environment in which students delve deeper into what they have already studied. Students prepare a topic at home so that the class the next day can be devoted to answering any questions they have about the topic. This helps students to involve in learning making it an inclusive process.
  3. Gamify Education – Learning through the use of games is one of the teaching methods that is quite prevalent especially in elementary and preschool education. By creating games around the content that has to be learnt, teachers can make soaking of information by students simple and effective.This needs preparation, but once done the same routine can be repeated. TutMe helps you and make suggestions for gamifying Science and Maths content.
  4. Explore surroundings – We have all heard about Shantiniketan experiment by Guru Rabindranath Tagore. The reason why they had classes into open was for students to explore, observe and learn. This method of learning used intelligently can deliver excellent results across age groups and subjects. Also, this is a time when students learn without realising they are learning and therefore, those students who feel threatened by books deliver excellent results when your learning strategy involves this.
  5. Self-paced learning – In the rush to attain high marks, we sometimes push our students towards rote learning. But is that delivering any results which will prepare them for future jobs. A self paced learning, where student has been given tools and then left to explore on his own works very well.Tutme has modules where a teacher can assign projects and study material to students who can explore these at their preferred time and at their pace. This helps them learn at their own pace without any student getting intimidated by pace of teaching.Conceptually mind maps is a starting point for this also. Educators can create a theme on a Mind Map and let the students develop it further.
  6. Online learning tools – Internet is full of tools, both free and paid, which are amazing for learning. However, this process should be strictly guided by teachers, else, it might do more harm than good for students’ learning. There are tools like online quizzes on TutMe to help educators use the same without any hassle and integrate it with daily learning routine.
  7. Social Media in Classroom – Social media is a great tool to remain connected and to help everyone show their specific capabilities. Yes, there has been a negative connotation associated with Social media. However, if used under guidance, this could be a great enabler for learning. In fact, the forums on TutMe or similar other places can let everyone contribute to solve everyone else’s problem, irrespective of which institution one is associated with.Online school management software in Gurgaon,Online school management software in Noida

I am sure today’s classrooms will have to look different from yesterday’s classrooms. The advent of technology – simple, powerful and affordable makes it simple to achieve. Immersive experiences help children become not only better learners but also great world citizens. Go give it a try!

Fee management in schools

Schools are for teaching and learning. However, there are a few functions that schools have to carry out to sustain their existence. There are services like maintaining cleanliness, ensuring safety of students and providing safe transport for travel from and to home.

 However, one task, that needs a lot of time and effort for administrators in school is Fee collection. This starts from Fee generation and ends with Fee collection and reconciliation of accounts. While it looks simple, the variety of Fee structures and the kind of concessions/ scholarships offered to different students make it one of the most tedious jobs for schools. Something that they have not been equipped with and have struggled to do effectively and efficiently.

BANGLADESH_-_1015_-_Scuola_cattolica

 Traditionally, the Fee was collected in cash and a register would be used for recording all transactions. However, with advent of technology, there are different modes of payments being used. As per a survey in all CBSE school, almost 40% of Fee is deposited as non-cash. Which means it is deposited using cheque or through electronic means. CBSE has also made it compulsory for all schools affiliated to it, to provide parents an option to pay fee electronically to ensure more transparency and ease of fee deposition. With popularity of wallets and UPIID, even parents in mid to lower socio- economic demographics are using electronic payment methods.

While fee collection is an important aspect, the fact that fee details should be kept updated all the times is critical to ensure correct information. While the correct information is important, the process has to be simple enough to ensure schools can conduct it with ease. In this context Fee management softwares become very important for schools.

TutMe is one revolutionary platform which attempts to make the administrative work at school very simple. In addition to ensure a seamless Parent communication, attendance, Exam and reports and academics section, the fee module in TutMe is very easy to set and extremely efficient. Hundreds of schools across India are already using this platform to make their work easy and smooth.
