Challenge

A shift in India’s education policy and the introduction of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) greatly increased teachers’ workloads and required more collaboration and documentation. Educators needed a technology solution because they couldn’t efficiently meet CCE requirements through a traditional approach.

Solution

R.N. Podar adopted Google Apps for Education in 2011. The school now has 6,000 Google Apps for Education accounts, one for every teacher, staff member and student. Although they initially adopted the solution for CCE, teachers soon discovered that Google Apps for Education also delivered exciting possibilities for teaching and learning. As classroom time became more productive and engaging, student learning improved dramatically.
