“Practically School Solution is absolutely a one stop shop. When we started using Practically for Virtual Classroom Management System, our teachers were extremely satisfied with the experience thanks to a number of useful features. Later on, we realised that students were performing better as they found the gamification and AR videos to be so fascinating that they were better able to retain and apply what they studied. Many of them have also gone on to use Practically outside of school hours because parents have found them to be beneficial for after-school learning as well.”, said a representative of KKR’s Gowtham Schools.
Sekhar V Das, Chairman, International Delhi Public School, Rajahmundry said, “When we shut down our campus in March last year, it was a very challenging time for our staff. Among the many solutions we saw, Practically School Solution immediately caught our attention and we have now been using it for 9 months. The pace with which we were able to on-board and replicate classrooms virtually during the pandemic, helped us keep classes going even from home. As students were excited by the videos and simulations, we noticed that they were keen on taking quizzes and assessments to put their learnings to the test! Our teachers were also able to use their exhaustive content library, scheduling and test prep features with ease. Practically has made our lives a lot easier during this tough time.”
