COVID19 has led to a change from traditional chalk-board pedagogy to the digital learning approach.
Educational institutions in Pune are ensuring ‘learning never stops’ amid COVID-19 with virtual classes. This not only enables teachers and students to connect over video-enabled remote classrooms but also provides a host of interactive and collaborative tools on a single platform.
We at Times Group believe schools have played an important role in educating the students in their best way possible amidst lockdown and hence we take this opportunity to felicitate such schools of Pune. This will be a way to recognize the best schools in various categories.

Sanksriti Group of Schools
The future of education lies in a personalized learning approach where the unique interests, aptitude and learning needs of every student can be fulfilled. Technology is a great enabler to catalyze this by empowering the teacher. The cornerstone of any successful learning program – whether in the classroom or digital is – motivated and passionate teachers who are willing to go the extra mile for their students. Children will respond best to love, personal attention and patience in any setting. We have tried our best to retain these core values even in the digital setting. In our experience the best use of the technology is to create processes to supplement the teachers and not try to supplant them.
– Devyani Mungali, Founder Director, Sanskriti Group of Schools, Pune

“Adapting to the new normal is the only choice in current times.

Thanks to our technological prowess, which has always kept us ahead of the curve.
