Delhi Public School Pune in association with Edunext Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (http://www.edunexttechnologies.com) launched India's first ever Android app for schools. This app is very helpful app for parents,students,teachers & management to get or upload information about student. Once the app is installed on the mobile phone, student,parent,teacher or management starts getting or uploading information for student or staff attendance, homework, results, circulars, calendar, fee dues, library transactions, daily remarks, etc. The best part of school is that, it frees schools from mobile sms gateways which most of the times get choked or barred in case of emergency. Another interesting feature of the app is that the information till the last update can be viewed even if there is no internet connectivity on the mobile.
Great Start App has a lot of possibilities. Great initiative. Lot of gaps - primarily in the data - eg attendance sheet not up to date. But is a great start. Perhaps a section on teacher communication would be great. A two way dialog between teacher and parent. Also - no update on current events like Palki procession and it's impact in school timings or holidays.
