At CMR and Ekya, the child is at the heart of everything we do and technology is no different. We have always believed in giving the best of tools and technology to our students with the sole intention of enhancing their learning experience. We also strongly think that any technology intervention should complement the learning process and what the teacher teaches in a classroom. Hence, we introduce a technology solution only when there is a strong need and a compelling use-case.
Our technology journey started way back in 2012 when we were one of the earliest schools in the Country to launch Google Suites (earlier known as Google Apps for Education) to all our teachers and students. And, over the years we have partnered with few of the most progressive technology players in different facets of education spanning administration, curriculum development, and professional development. These are truly cutting edge solutions that have a proven track record globally.
With our curriculum design and delivery evolving at a rapid pace, we started looking out for a solution that would be able to capture all aspects of learning a student goes through, by providing a platform that complements the learning standards set by the Ekya curriculum.
Our search for such a solution started over a year ago and after testing out almost all leading solutions available within the country and globally, we zeroed in on the best in the game – PowerSchool – Unified Classroom. With all our students and teachers already having used Google Classroom and Suites over years now, we were confident that this upgrade will be nothing less than exciting and enriching for all of us.
PowerSchool is the #1 leading education technology platform for K-12, serving more than 32 million students, 66 million parents, and 100 million users in over 70 countries around the world.

What adds to our excitement is the fact that we are the first Indian group of Schools to launch PowerSchool’s Unified Classroom. The award-winning Unified Classroom facilitates a centralized instructional process for Ekya and CMR, bringing together student information system, assessment, learning and grading into a single unified platform.
Stay tuned for more updates on our technology journey.
