In view of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, the Delhi Government announced the shutdown of all primary schools in Delhi until March 31. The announcement was made via a tweet by Manish Sisodia, Deputy CM, Delhi.
Yet, the students at the Global Indian International School (GIIS) India will continue to get the daily lessons, courtesy virtual classrooms. “The NOIDA based school Global Indian International School (GIIS), has commenced GIIS virtual classroom for its students from today, offering school lessons through online video conferencing technologies,” informed Mr. Atul Temurnikar, Co-Founder & Chairman, Global Schools Foundation.
The virtual classrooms are very easily operated by students of age groups from 5 years to 18 years, by simply clicking a secure virtual classroom link within MyGIIS, a proprietary EduERP system developed by GIIS R&D at its SEZ operations in MIHAN NAGPUR.
The students will continue to receive education on a seamless basis. The school has put in place several innovative teaching techniques that the students can now take advantage of, to keep themselves safe and secure at all times. GIIS has implemented a Continuity Plan (CP) for its students and teachers to minimize the impact of the virus and minimize disruptions to students in their learning journey.
Global Indian International School (GIIS) has seven campuses in India, of which one campus is in Noida. GIIS Noida has 1400 students.
GIIS schools in Bangalore, Pune, Surat & Ahmedabad will follow suit in a day, and with these, over 11,000 students at these & overseas located GIIS schools would be able to enjoy virtual classes from the comfort of their homes. GIIS is the first school in the world to deploy virtual classrooms on such a large enterprise scale.
