QAI Partners With EZ Vidya To Promote “Quality Of Learning” In Educational Institutions
Posted OnFebruary 24, 2012 by Rose Mary
QAI (www.qaiglobal.com) the leading workforce development and consulting organization recently announced its partnership with EZ Vidya, India's premier school education products and services organization. The partnership ventures to leverage EZ Vidya’s vision to create effective and engaging learning environments for students and teachers alike, coupled with QAI’s constant endeavor to inculcate a culture of quality and thereby enhance the competency of the workforce of tomorrow.
For the last ten years EZ Vidya has been aiming towards 'quality in education' through their flagship product Chrysalis, a 21st century curriculum for schools. This partnership aims to take the Chrysalis curriculum to schools across India and thus offer a comprehensive solution for curriculum, technology and teacher development attuned to the 21st century. This tri-pronged approach amalgamated with QAI’s quality approach aims to expose students to the concept, benefits and importance of quality early in their lives.
This collaboration between QAI India Ltd and EZ Vidya has already started yielding results with schools spread across the four Southern states having signed up with QAI and EZ Vidya for successful delivery of the co-developed program. Some of these institutions are Sishya School, Sri Raja Rajeswari Mat Hr Sec School, Paramekkavu Vidya Mandir, The Calibre Academy and Dr.K.K.R's Gowtham Educational Institutions among others.
Speaking on this partnership, Navyug Mohnot, CEO QAI India Ltd. said, “It is not that the importance of education is underestimated in our country; public discourse keeps it very much a part of everyone's agenda. However, this consciousness revolves mainly around “access" to education—issues like enrollment, attendance, dropout rates, discrimination, physical condition, facilities, all of which doubtlessly merit high attention. But equally deserving and of urgent attention is the “Quality of Learning”, which usually gets perfunctory treatment. We are pleased to associate with EZ Vidya to address this specific issue and look forward to a long term relationship.”
“A lot of maladies of our educational system today can be traced to the way we assess students. I wish our assessment system captures a lot more of the 'whole persona' of our students”, said Chitra Ravi, Founder and CEO of EZ Vidya. Further Chitra Ravi said that EZ Vidya is respected amongst the client schools for Quality than anything else. “To my mind the simplest definition of Quality in Schools is smiling students, who learn well and are happy to come to school” said Ms. Ravi.
