For an educational institution, admissions happen to be the backbone. During this pandemic, while all institutions are trying to cope up with the changed way of imparting education, many institutes have taken this challenge in the true spirit and are working strongly to make full justice to the new ways.
Mr. Vivek Sharan , Founder of Ignify solutions, Hyderabad’s top educational consultancy, says, “this virus has played an evolutionary role in reshaping the age old teaching – learning process. This pandemic has introduced us to a new world of learning which is powered by numerous strong tools which, if used effectively, can bring a new wave of learning and enlightenment.”
According to UNICEF, more than 1 billion students across the world are expected to be affected due to the ongoing Pandemic. The age-old chalk and talk method seem to be taking some more time to get its glory back. School and college buildings are shut for students for more than four months now and normalcy seems to be still a far-fetched thought. The Pandemic has changed how millions around the globe have been receiving education till date.
In such unprecedented times, there is a lot of pressure on educational institutes to keep the positivity quotient high and continue the noble work of imparting knowledge without hiccups.
To deal with such tough times, it is important that schools and colleges have a well-designed action plan to execute keeping in mind the new normal. Educational consultancies like Ignify Solutions are trying to help schools and colleges to design ways to keep admission flow intact while keeping the standard of education high.
Schools and colleges have already started using the digital/online medium to conduct classes. Thousands of students all over the country are receiving education through these digitally designed online classes. At this point, it is important for institutes to keep these points in mind:
With a rapid increase of mobile internet users in India, which is expected to reach 85% households by 2024, technology would play a key role to take education to the remotest parts of the country. But the biggest challenge here would be to bridge the digital divide as our country still has a big chunk of population devoid of internet facilities. Such challenges may lead to many break through
Marketing activities for the institutions will have to take a completely new turn as the older USPs might not work any longer to attract parents for admission of their wards. Therefore, schools and colleges will have to now develop a complete and robust USP which ideally should focus on imparting value based education which would also be a result of a balanced digital approach with all round focus on other developmental parameters of a child. The educational institutions along with the top consultancies like Ignify are coming up with unique and rewarding techniques to bring smile to every child’s face and help them achieve their intellectual goals.
