Microsoft India will train 800 teachers of Sri Chaitanya Schools as the schools embark on their digital classrooms program. Sri Chaitanya Schools recently announced adopting Microsoft India’s Edu-Cloud infrastructure and 14,000 Windows-based tablets for their students and teachers of Class 3, 4 and 5 in 80 schools to connect, collaborate, create, and share content, with an aim to make teaching and learning fun. The teachers’ training will be as per the recommended guidelines of the Microsoft’s well-known, global ‘Partners in Learning’ (PiL) program.
Microsoft’s PiL program introduces innovative approaches to pedagogy, supports teacher professional development, and provides teachers with the tools to implement and manage change. To drive education reforms across their schools and build teacher capacity, Sri Chaitanya Schools will also use the Microsoft Innovative Schools Program and Microsoft Educator Network.
Neeraj Gill, General Manager – Public Sector, Microsoft India, said, “Technology is transforming education and empowering students, teachers and educational institutes the world over. Our Partners in Learning and other school programs equip teachers to use technology in pedagogy that bring out the best in students and help them prepare for the future. We are glad that Sri Chaitanya Schools have chosen these programs and adopted 14,000 Windows-based tablets to gain from Microsoft India’s Edu-Cloud, driving a holistic in-classroom experience in their schools.”
