ICT is the new medium of instruction in exclusive schools in Jaipur
A few schools in Jaipur have started using a mobile app and cloud networking system to make the school management web-based. By making use of the app, parents can have access their children's daily attendance, activity photos, home assignments, progress report, fee-deposit status, etc., through child's on-line account, reports Rajasthan Patrika.

It seems that the SmartClasses, on-line learning and web-based information sharing are becoming a fashion with the schools by switching over to intimating the daily attendance of students to parents and students through smart phones along with the school activities. The use of grade-wise websites, cloud networking and pod-casting are becoming the new educational fashion statements.

The much sought after schools of Jaipur are engaging the information and communication technology (ICT) companies with technological inputs and solutions, and buying their softwares through direct purchase and easy-to-pay installments.

Earlier, the exclusive English medium schools were considered to be better schools, but with most private schools becoming English medium now and English being taught from grade one even in government schools, the exclusive schools are switching over to ICT as the new medium of instruction.

There is a distinct switch over from the 'language-divide' to the 'digital-divide' and the exclusive school will forge ahead because of being 'rich schools' capable of buying new and upgraded ICTs.

This is being done by embracing the SmartSchool (SS) concept in a big way in exclusive schools catering education to the children of rich and wealthy parents. A new rat race in school education has started through equipping the schools with new and upgraded ICTs much to the advantages of the market forces and higher strata of society.

According to educational technologists working for the market forces, SS is the school that makes use of ICT as a medium of instruction through which teaching-learning expertise and skills are made available to students both in the school as well as at the home without compromising quality of information transfer through its digitization and availability through the Internet via cloud networking.

It is being held that the SS system will help teachers bring more collaboration and interactivity into the classroom to transform student learning processes and increase their learning engagement. 

Teaching through computer, Internet and multimedia devices has become new mantra for modernity and fashion statement in school education. That's why the exclusive 'public schools' are converting themselves into SmartSchools with ICT as the medium of instruction in their smart classrooms to remain exclusive.
