This session will help Affordable Private Schools (APS) to acknowledge and absorb
methods of using Technology and 21st Century Learning tools (Windows and Office)
• How APS’s need to embrace using technology to enhance education. Although there are some reservations regarding technology’s utility and Internet safety, the majority of users view technology as an integral part of a modern and global education. Each stakeholder’s perspective plays a different role in how technology is used and purchased.
• School leaders purchase new technology to increase students’ learning levels. They also buy technology to remain competitive among other APS schools and to keep their customers-the parents-satisfied.
• School leaders see technology as a tool that can bridge important gaps in school like improving spoken English, alleviating heavy bags, and connecting students and families globally.
Schools are places where children are cared for, supported, and nurtured into becoming productive citizens. School Teachers have an ethical role of creating and maintaining a learning environment which respects students by allowing them to mature into productive citizens of our larger democratic society.
Great Teachers create Great Students. And the research shows that a learned and informed teacher is the most important ingredient in building a successful career of a student.
Jasper Trips specialises in outdoor trips for schools. Our school trips are a combination of adventure, service, learning and of course, fun. We are proud to state that over 10,000 students have participated and benefited from our specially designed school programmes.
Our school itineraries include a wide variety of activities such as easy rafting, trekking, cycling, wildlife safaris, nature walks, outdoor skills, nature education and community service. The programmes intends to evoke students’ interest in the natural and cultural heritage of India and to also make them sensitive yet dynamic global citizens.
