Sri Lanka launches first grade wide Smart Classroom powered by XOLO

Following the success of the first and the only tab-based Smart Classroom in Sri Lanka, the Ministry of Economic Reforms and Public Distribution together with the Ministry of Education and CodeGen International (Pvt) Ltd., introduced the first grade-wide deployment of Smart Classrooms at the Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte Boys School on the 07th day of January 2019.

Moreover, these Smart Classrooms are powered by XOLO Smart Classroom platform. The software is developed and managed by CodeGen and endorsed by the Ministry of Education.

At the launch, Minister of Economic Reforms and Public Distribution, Dr. Harsha de Silva stated, “Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte Boys School, is the only school that has a fully integrated Smart Classroom solution. These are not just classrooms with Smart Boards but uses an intuitive learning platform. This is done in order to connect  teachers and students effectively. The continuity of this will be our responsibility, as we are here today for change. By 2022 we hope to transform one of the oldest schools in Sri Lanka into a Smart School.”

“Sri Lanka’s year on year per capita growth is just around 2.5%. It is extremely low if we are to match any developed country such as Singapore. Over 250,000 students pass out from schools, but only 50,000 students enter into the local University system in Sri Lanka. Have we ever analysed the potential of this future workforce, to find ways to optimise economic growth? Education is not about learning content, it is about being able to apply what we learn to solve real world problems. So, it’s time to move from content based to problem solving education.” Stated CodeGen International, Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Harsha Subasinghe.

“XOLO Smart Classroom platform’s safety and monitoring features are widely used by the School’s administration and teachers. With real-time class monitoring and problem-based education system, this technology demonstrates an end-to-end education platform. This has enabled us to transform the way students learn.” Stated Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte Boys School, Smart Classroom Teacher.
