THE RIGHT ENVIRONMENT

Each child develops differently. At Podar, we understand this perfectly and provide our young learners with the ideal learning environment where they are not limited by anything in their endeavours to learn.

School Infrastructure

Students should be comfortable while learning.

Classroom Technology

We provide access to technology from a young age.

EduTech

Encouraging the effective use of Technology in Education.

School Infrastructure

At Podar International School, we develop our school infrastructure with an aim to maximize the potential of each student to learn, reduce distractions, enhance focus and remove any form of discomfort or difficulty.

Hence our schools are designed incorporating the principles of ergonomics at all levels. Our classrooms are spacious making sure the students can focus on the lesson. We have specially designed furniture in each of our school classrooms that make sure the student is comfortable all throughout the school session. Other facilities include:

  • A fully equipped medical centre with requisite first-aid as well as a trained medical professional.
  • Multiple Labs such as Science Labs, Maths Labs, Innovation Lab so that students get practical learning experiences.
  • State of the art Library. Since we train our students to ask questions, we also inculcate in them the curiosity for research and give them the perfect playground for finding out more about everything.
  • Safe transport for students to school and back in buses that are comfortable, clean and professionally managed. Each bus has a specially trained driver, lady attendant and a conductor. These buses operate on extensive routes.

Classroom Technology

At Podar International Schools, our teaching methodology expands beyond the boundaries of traditional board and chalk teaching to include technology and modern techniques wherever possible. To help students understand and visually relate to complex concepts, every classroom has been provided with projectors & visualisers. With the help of such technology we make sure our students have a firm grasp on the subject matter and are able to think in three-dimensional space.

The Schools are provided with secure and fast Internet connections secured by Firewalls for security. Each school is equipped with the ICT Lab for computer practicals. The school has a very robust ICT curriculum covering topics ranging from coding, design, web applications, mobile apps and 3D Printing.

EDUTECH

Meeta has challenges with writing. She uses a text-to-speech software that enables her to write with almost 98% accuracy.

Nishad finds it difficult to visualise what a heart looks like. His teacher prints a heart on a 3D printer and now Nishad learns not only how it looks but also how it works!

There are innumerable examples to show how technology has helped us learn things that were difficult or not as effective using any other means. Keeping this thought in mind, the EduTech arm of the PIC ensures integration of technology into education, in a responsible way, so that it facilitates student learning rather than hamper it.

Innovation Lab

Podar International School has introducted state of art Innovation Labs that will enable students to get a hands-on education on the latest technologies like Robotics, Drones, 3D Printing and Virtual Reality.
Robotics and drones help them to learn programming, automation and coding. Through 3D printing, we encourage students to use their knowledge and zeal to solve problems through designing. Virtual reality helps them explore the extreme environment and faraway places.
The Innovation Lab is a dedicated space designed for children to apply STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics concepts with an integrated curriculum.
The Innovation Lab is an avenue to reach students who want to express themselves creatively. Podar International School want these spaces to be places where students can be creative, collaborate, think outside of the traditional boxes.


Cyber Safety and Digital Citizenship

Technology can be a boon or bane – depends on how you use it. We strongly believe that controlling is not the solution but educating is. Thus, instead of just adding filters and firewalls, we also conduct cyber safety workshops for students of Std V to X and ensure that they become good Netizens.

Parent-Teacher Communication Portal (Between Us)

Every student of Podar International School receives a username password of BetweenUs for online learning. Podar International School incorporates a Virtual Time Table for students to impart learning online. This is achieved via BetweenUs Portal which allows the schools/parents to communicate with each other, submit assignments, view the resources as well as pay fees online.

During the Covid-19 associated lockdown synchronous and asynchronous classes are being conducted for students by all the network schools. This has led to the generation of some top-class visual educational content for students of various grades, across the boards - CBSE, ICSE and Cambridge International. These comprise of videos based on different core subjects for students across all grades.
The EduTech team in coordination with the other verticals of the PIC created video-libraries on the popular online platform – youtube.com for each board. Access to these 500 plus video libraries have been brought together and made available to not only the students and parents in the network but also to the general public for the larger benefit.
