Why be a part of the herd when you can be the trailblazer?
Student management in this century is no small feat. More people have access to education than ever before. This means that both private and public schools have an overwhelming number of students pouring in every year. This new era brings new challenges for schools. The age-old methods of student management have proved inadequate for the modern education system. The number of students, teachers and subjects available is impossible for an administrator to keep track of on their own.
Many schools have already experienced the burden of computing student data manually. Within Pakistan, the education system lags behind because it can not keep up with the data it generates. Often student records are misplaced or lengthy process is required to retrieve appropriate data. Moreover, without the right statistics schools are underutilizing their resources by basing important decisions on estimations. On top of that schools struggle to monitor and evaluate teachers, especially if it’s a big school. Inefficient hiring can stifle the growth of schools. Generally, Schools are unaware of their own potential because they fail to innovate in an effective way.
School hierarchy in Pakistan
Pakistan has a very established hierarchy of schools. The oldest private boarding schools on top, private school networks after that, small private institutions and lastly government schools/madrassas. The established system is so rigid that it seems impossible for any school to progress. Their status remains fixed and subsequently, their income does too. However, this rigidity is indeed an opening for schools looking to advance. The staunch traditionalism of some schools allows others to gain a competitive edge that can change the game. Innovation.
To innovate is to create something new. For schools, what’s new is digitization. To digitize is to use software for everyday management of the school. Instead of costly manual administration, you use affordable technology to generate, calculate and interpret data. This is the feature that other schools lack. A simple step to propel your school upward in the hierarchy. No need for completely restructure your school or spend finances on new campuses. Use technology to solve all your problems.
