The adoption of Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams, Librarika, Live worksheets, Cambridge Go and other tools has played a significant role in these achievements.

The implementation of Microsoft 365 has revolutionized the way students, teachers, and administrators collaborate and access resources. The cloud-based platform allows for seamless file sharing, enabling students to work on assignments from any location and device. Teachers can create and distribute digital worksheets, presentations, and instructional materials effortlessly. Additionally, administrative tasks such as attendance tracking and grade management have become more streamlined.

Microsoft Teams has become an integral part of the school’s communication and virtual learning infrastructure. It serves as a centralized hub for online classes, enabling teachers to conduct live sessions, share screens, and engage students in real-time discussions. Students can easily submit their assignments through Teams, and teachers can provide timely feedback. The platform also facilitates peer collaboration, as students can work together on group projects and share resources within designated channels.

Librarika, an online library management system, has transformed the way students’ access and utilize library resources. Through this platform, students can search for books, eBooks, and other educational materials, check their availability, and even place holds for items. This digital library system promotes independent reading and research skills, as students can explore relevant content and broaden their knowledge beyond the classroom.

Teachers integrate multimedia resources, interactive presentations, and educational apps to make lessons more engaging and interactive. They leverage digital assessment tools to evaluate student progress and tailor instruction accordingly. Students are encouraged to use educational software, online simulations, and virtual field trips to deepen their understanding of various subjects.
