Computers supporting the latest technology are installed. A host of software starting from latest edition of Windows to MS Office Suite, Adobe range of powerful designing tools, Macromedia animation tools is available. High speed internet connectivity facilitates the students’ journey to the corners of the world.

ICT infrastructure includes a fair number of machines for the students to individually practice,review and perform. They learn the proper usage of the computer to create their own little master pieces, and of course the teachers are always at hand to assist. No wonder this is one of their favorite spots. A well designed curriculum and methodology is adopted to impart training on Information Technology.

Projectors are installed in all classrooms, facilitating Multimedia assisted teaching-learning process. Internet connectivity is also provided in classrooms. Teachers are equipped with laptops and they extensively use Power Point presentations and multimedia content to reinforce what they teach in the classroom. All KG environments are provided with Apple Ipad and Apple TV with Wi-fi connectivity to facilitate display of rhymes, stories, conservation enhancement tools and other educational entertainment.The school also inculcates digital technology to complement classroom activities. Here, the academic content no longer follows the traditional style! The digitalized versions of lessons hold the children’s interest giving life to their process of learning. Classrooms are transformed to Interactive Learning Centers where the teachers use various digital aids to assist in the teaching process, replacing the conventional chalk and talk method. Technology enabled Classrooms help the teachers to use digital resources such as educational animations, videos, diagrams and graphics with audio to bring interactivity right inside the classroom, creating a multi-sensory learning for students that help improve their academic performance.Interactive multimedia assisted learning enhances the performance of the students by facilitating long term retention and retrieval, its dynamic nature encourages active learning and brings the subjects to life and promotes in-depth understanding of the subjects through its engaging content.This concept of technology enabled education takes a higher level of significance since it is incorporated in the classroom itself where the teaching learning activities actually take place.
