Smart Class O3 (One-On-One computing) Program community is for students and teachers using this revolutionary new program to raise effectiveness of teaching-learning in classrooms. Under Educomp’s O3 program, all students are provided with a laptop, a Classmate PC (CMPC) from Intel. All teachers are also equipped with laptops. The teaching and learning process for Science, Math, English, and Social Studies in the school is adapted to integrate technology to enhance learning. The O3 program rolls out a series of functionalities to help students under this initiative. The students and teachers use the systems for regular school activities like learning, assessments, projects and problem solving. The teachers are trained to work with the program.
Some of the key benefits of this innovative methodology are a dramatic increase in individual attention that the teacher is able to give each child, the individual screen allows greater proximity to what is being taught, concepts can be introduced in a thrilling and exciting manner, assessments that are done provide instant results which further helps a teacher to assess what percentage of the class has understood or not understood a concept taught and the concept is then taught again with greater clarity and emphasis.
Students are also given specially customized computer games to reinforce learning. Children can be divided into groups even as they are seated in their respective place and encouraged to work on any unit, the quieter ambience will lend to greater learning. Classmate PCs have parental control buttons and teacher locking to make it safe for the children to use it even at home, ensuring they do not browse any site they should not.
This community aims to exchange ideas on innovative teaching and learning suggestions. Brainstorm to overcome challenges or simply share experiences. From time to time there may also be training update sessions for the group and also a lot of stories from teachers and students!!!
