Technology at Chitkara International School aids our students to enjoy the learning process and stakeholders to stay connected.
Technology is an important part of education at Chitkara International School. We believe that students should engage with the tools of their generation to collaborate, communicate and be the producers of technology and information, not just consumers.
Our Technology Hub comprises of following facilities:
School Cinema is a film based learning module which has been introduced in Chitkara International School for reaffirming life skills, values and morals to children.
- It reduces stress levels and enhances expression of thoughts and feelings.
- It also helps students to establish and maintain meaningful relationship with peers, and an open relationship with parents and teachers.
- It is three way learning: Awareness, Understanding and Action.
- It helps students to relate, understand and identify core issues addressed, and enables the students to internalize and put into practice the key learning.
The School Cinema process also includes the development of formative and summative CCE assessment that evaluates the students on life skills, values and attitudes. CCE being an integral part determines effectiveness of learning and assimilation by learners.

E-Beam – Interactive Board Technology
The E-Beam is a compact device that turns the existing whiteboard into an interactive classroom workspace. The E-Beam receiver, at just 6 inches across and 4.5 ounces, fits seamlessly into the corner of any existing whiteboard and can activate up to 8 feet of board space.
E-Beam brings meaningful technology integration and digital resources into the classroom in an intuitive and user-friendly manner. It allows one to re-use, improve, and share teacher-created multimedia content using the basic white board and a standard PC. E-Beam magically converts the vanilla white board into a completely interactive smart board thus enabling an interactive and creative session in the class.
Waterford Early Learning System
Waterford combines technology and education to instruct the children in an individualized and reproducible manner. Waterford’s unique technology constantly monitors each student’s mastery of skills and then adapts instruction to meet each student’s needs.
Not only does technology make Waterford instruction effective, it is also makes the instruction engaging and enticing. Waterford courseware is filled with exciting graphics, music, and game-like components that delight children.
Every classroom at CIS is equipped with digital content to support the classroom teaching –learning environment. The school has tied up with Extramarks.
Extramarks is based on the Cognitive Learning Approach – a widely accepted theory on the learning process. According to it, there is a close relationship between “what we know” and “what we need to learn.” So by associating new material with something familiar, students can better understand and retain new information. It caters to classes from Kindergarten till Grade 12.
Extramarks comes with various features like Adaptive Learning, Scheduler, Progress tracker and Collaborative learning with various groups of learners across the globe. Students can make and share their own notes with others for better retention.
With the comprehensive use of all these new applications, Chitkara International school is putting itself firmly in the camp of engagement with cutting-edge, cloud-based technologies to improve student learning. With greater access to information on-demand, teachers and students are free to pursue individualised, inquiry –based work at school as well as at home.
