1 (2)
Most educational institutions, especially junior and high schools don’t allow students to bring cell phones at school. But does that really stop students from bringing the same? The reality is, students do bring in cell phones in their trouser pockets and school bags. When we can’t deny the reality, why can’t we think of ways by which we can utilize cell phones to educate them.

We all know how easily children gets acquainted with gadgets nowadays and how fast they learn to operate cell phone technologies. So, definitely teaching them how to use the technology for learning won’t be a difficult task. Read this article to know some easy ways by which you can utilize mobile phone technology as a learning tool.

  • There are various types of mobile apps that facilitates the use of cellphones in learning. There are some wonderful teacher apps like Evernote and Dropbox that helps teachers and students share notes, write-ups and photos so easily over the phone. Evernote allows you to take down text notes, share photos and even clip a web page. While Dropbox, also a cellphone app, lets you share documents, photos, etc with others by just putting them in the Dropbox.
  • Another smarter way to use the mobile phone in classroom is by teachers who can record their lectures, be it an audio or a video and let students utilize them at their convenience. Save a lot of classroom time and let students utilise Youtube in the most appropriate way.
  • One of the easiest and fastest ways for teachers to communicate with your students out of classroom is by a phone call. Its upto the teachers to find clever ways to get students start using cellphones more effectively for learning. Exchanging messages on homework and assignments can be made smooth using mobile phones.
  • Teachers and students can make use of different learning platforms available like the School Town and communicate with each other through chats and sharing learning fundamentals. This kind of platforms allows sharing materials from teachers to students.

Use of mobile phones in learning: The problems

Every student can’t be expected to possess a mobile phone; but this problem can be met with a solution. Forming students group with a single cell phone can work out and can help in reporting out and delivering in any message to teachers. Besides, there might be connectivity problem, particularly when students go out of wireless network area. Most schools don’t offer wireless connection in school premises and most students tend not to use providers signal. In this case too, teachers can rely on group works where one student with proper connectivity can communicate with teachers on behalf of his group.

Above all, the main task of teachers is to teach students how to make the right use of cell phones for learning. It is the responsibility of the teacher to guide students to proper usage of mobile technology without being victims of sexting, cyberbullying and other cyber crimes.

The K-12 Education System and its Presence in India

The introduction of technology has revolutionized education and that has given birth to new modes of education. One of the new modes that have changed the way education is imparted is K-12 education. K-12 education is an educational concept that is widely gaining in popularity in countries like the United States of America, Canada, and India as well, among other countries. This kind of educational system is different from the conventional method of teaching and involves a more teacher-student communication than the conventional version. Read on and find out more on the K-12 education system and its presence in India.

The K-12 education is the term used to denote the education imparted in the primary and secondary phases of school life, including K or kindergarten to 12 which stands for the 12th standard. This particular system covers education from kindergarten till the 12th grade. The concept is slowly gaining its importance in India with the government introducing new educational schemes like free compulsory primary education throughout the country.

The K-12 education system includes a lot of teacher-student interaction with the teacher encouraging a lot of question-answer sessions, assignments that would promote interesting learning habits in students. Individual attention is another key factor in the education system. This method of teaching is beneficial and let the students develop learning and understanding capabilities on their own. The teacher plays the ideal guiding star in their success. One of the main points that sets this system apart from its conventional counterpart is the fact that, other than the typical classroom activity of students preparing and submitting assignments, they are also encouraged to add values to their assignments in the form of personal views and ideas. They are also motivated to take part in various discussion clubs and forums to exchange ideas and views.

The introduction and rising popularity of the K-12 education system in India itself stands witness to the reformed education system in the country. The mode of teaching, as well as the content and resources, have changed to a great extent to facilitate more involvement of students. Schools nowadays invest a good amount to create the best infrastructures for their students. Students, on their part, just grab the best of these facilities and available resources offered for optimum learning. This kind of platform is what the K-12 education system promotes and this is what more and more schools in India are adopting.

If creating individuals is what the main aim of the present day education system is all about, then the K-12 is all that should be adopted. More teacher-student harmony and more self-reliable, independent individual who can create the difference, not just for the school, but for the society as a whole is what this new educational revolution has to offer.

Fedena Integration with Tally

Fedena Integration with Tally: How it Works

Tally (1)
To maintain the financial system, most educational institutions use Tally. On the other hand, Fedena allows you to maintain all kinds of financial transactions like payment of salary, fees transactions and a whole lot of others. But when you want to transfer all transactions from Fedena to Tally, you cannot do that manually. Instead, you can use the Tally plugin with Fedena which is nothing but a bridge between the two. Once it is synchronized, all financial transactions will be copied from Fedena to Tally. To know more about the Tally plugin, read on this article.

How Tally integration with Fedena simplifies the financial transactions?

Login to your Fedena account and go to ‘Tally Export’ in ‘Finance’ that can be found in the main menu. Once you click on ‘Tally Export’, you reach the ‘Tally Export’ page, a screenshot of which is given below.

‘Tally Export’ offers you four options. Let’s see how the options will help in using the plugin:

1. Settings:

Click on ‘Settings’ and you get the options to manage settings for the tally export. ‘Settings’ allows you five options to manage it. For configurations, you need to select ‘General Settings’ to include tally URL and live sync start date.

a. The ‘Organisations’ option lets you manage your organizations for which, you first need to ‘Add’ your organization’s name to it.

b. ‘Voucher Types’ lets you create and edit all types of vouchers.

c. Similarly, the options ‘Accounts’ and ‘Ledgers’ allows you to manage your Tally accounts and the ledgers for Tally respectively. You can create, view and edit ledgers for Tally with the ‘Ledgers’ option.

2. Manual Sync:

When you want to synchronize with Tally manually, you need to choose the ‘Manual Sync’ option. Click on ‘Manual Sync’ and select the start and end date for the manual synchronization.

Click on ‘Schedule’ and you see that manual synchronization has been scheduled successfully.

3. Bulk Export:

The ‘Bulk Export’ offers you two options for the export.

You can schedule a bulk export for Tally, using the ‘Schedule Export’ for which you need to select the start and end date and also the ledgers which can be some selected ones or all of them.

For downloading any pre-scheduled export, go to ‘Downloads’ and you can download the export in XML format.

4. Failed Syncs:

All failed synchronizations can be obtained from the ‘Failed Syncs’ option. Just select the date for which you want to know the failed syncs.


Advantages of Toys in Learning


The next time your children asks you to buy toys for them, don’t hesitate; just buy them! Here, you have the option to let your children grow with toys and that really make some difference. Toys are not just for fun and enjoyment, some add value to your child’s learning as well. There are variety of educational toys available in the market that can help in developing the learning skills of the kids. Learning capabilities of children have no limit and as a parent, you should do your best to find all possible ways to help them develop skills. Before you choose the right toys that can deliver educational benefits, you should know the advantages of using such educational toys. Follow the article and know what are they.

Wide varieties of toys are available for kids that cater to the different learning requirements. Toys with motor engines often require varied physical movements to control, thus throwing some light on how motor engines function and how much pressure it requires to function. On the other hand, there are obviously, those toys that force the youngsters to think and act.  Older kids who are regular to schools can deal with science toys to sharpen their imagination power and the urge to explore.

Studying the complexities of science can be tiring to many; but when it comes to doing the same with toys, it probably lessens the confusion and bring in more joy and fun to it. Toys with proper instructions to do science experiments can make fun games yet teach them valuable science lessons. This kind of toys is ideal for those children who are older enough to study science subjects. But, when it comes to toddlers, this type of experimental toys are too difficult for them to handle. Instead, get them toys like the one that comes in bricks with alphabets or numbers on them and help kids learn how to spell alphabets and know numbers.

During your child’s growing years, it is very important to provide them with the necessary amenities to let them grow. Jigsaw puzzles in different forms can contribute to a great extent to your effort. Plus, toys with mathematical analytics is surely a blessing for kids in their growing days when learning at every stage of their life is crucial.

If you want to contribute to the progress of your child, right from his days of growing up, then get hold of some educational toys which are mostly quite expensive ones and won’t burn your pocket. Let their imagination flow and allow them to crave for learning new things. Some toys that can be as simple as animal miniatures can help them connect with the real world and know about the creatures. So, gift some smart educational toys to your children and see them learn as they grow up!
