With electronic learning being gradually introduced in most private schools in the city, teachers feel the move has resulted in students taking more interest in studies.
Gurmant Kaur Gill, principal of Guru Nanak International Public School, Model Town, said, “EduComp smart classes have proved to be very beneficial and this system is more helpful to weaker students, as this practical technique of studying encourages them to learn more. Also, science subjects can be taught in a more detailed manner with practical demonstrations.”
BCM Arya Model Senior Secondary School, Shastri Nagar; Kundan Vidya Mandir, Civil Lines and Sacred Heart Convent Senior Secondary School, Sarabha Nagar are among the schools that initially adopted digital classrooms in the city.
Vandana Shahi, principal of BCM School, Dugri, said, “In theoretical classes students tend to form a perception about the things they are taught, but through this system they learn easily and quickly by seeing the real picture. Moreover, the electronic method encourages students to take part in discussion, which is not the case with lectures.”
Vandana Sethi, principal of Bhartiya Vidya Mandir, Udham Singh Nagar, said, “e-learning is very effective in teaching English and science, as students grasp things quickly.”
“The burden on teachers has also lightened as they simply have to explain the matter,” she said.
