School Virtual Stores
MAS 360 provides school the ability to open and run school uniform and merchandise stores within the mall, listed below are just some the benefits.
Increased brand visibility: The virtual store provides a platform for the school to showcase its brand and logo to a wider audience, thereby enhancing its visibility and recognition.
Convenient shopping experience: Parents, students, and alumni can conveniently browse and purchase school uniforms, bags, and branded merchandise from the comfort of their homes. This saves them time and effort compared to physically visiting a store.
Extended reach: By operating within a virtual mall, the school's virtual store can reach a larger audience beyond its immediate vicinity. This allows for increased access to school merchandise, making it easier for distant parents and alumni to support the school.
Enhanced fundraising opportunities: The virtual store can be utilised as a platform to generate additional revenue for the school through the sale of merchandise. This revenue can be directed towards funding various school initiatives, scholarships, or extracurricular activities.
Alumni engagement and connection: Offering adult merchandise specifically designed for parents and alumni creates an opportunity for these individuals to show their continued support and affiliation with the school. This fosters a sense of community and strengthens the bond between the school and its graduates.
Consistent branding and quality control: By having a dedicated virtual store, the school can maintain control over the quality and authenticity of its branded merchandise. This ensures that all products sold align with the school's standards and reinforces its image.
Data collection and insights: The virtual store allows the school to gather valuable data and insights about consumer preferences, popular products, and purchasing patterns. This information can inform future product development and marketing strategies.
Cost-effective solution: Operating a virtual store can be more cost-effective compared to establishing and maintaining a physical retail space. It reduces expenses such as rent, utilities, and staffing, while still providing a convenient shopping experience for customers.
Customisation and personalisation: The virtual store can offer customisation options for certain merchandise items, such as adding names, initials, or graduation years. This personalised touch enhances the value of the products and creates a unique shopping experience for customers.
Collaboration opportunities: The virtual mall environment can facilitate collaborations between the school's virtual store and other stores within the mall. This can lead to cross-promotion, joint marketing efforts, or special discounts, benefiting both the school and other merchants.
School 360 Virtual Walkthrough
We will also capture the physical space of the school in the way of a full virtual walkthrough of the school. Here are the benefits of creating a virtual walkthrough of the school for both parents and the school:
Benefits for Parents:
• Enhanced decision-making: Parents can get a comprehensive view of the school and its facilities through the virtual walkthrough. This helps them make more informed decisions about whether the school aligns with their expectations and requirements for their children.
• Convenience and accessibility: Parents can explore the school's physical space and facilities from anywhere at any time, eliminating the need for physical visits or scheduling appointments. This provides convenience and accessibility, especially for busy parents or those living in distant locations.
• Time and cost savings: By virtually touring the school, parents can save time and money that would have been spent on traveling to visit multiple schools. They can quickly assess if the school meets their needs, narrowing down their choices more efficiently.
• Transparency and trust-building: The virtual walkthrough demonstrates the school's commitment to transparency by allowing parents to see the entire campus and facilities. This fosters trust between parents and the school, as they can have a clear understanding of the environment their children will be in.
• Informed questions and engagement: After experiencing the virtual walkthrough, parents can ask more specific and relevant questions during subsequent interactions with school representatives. This allows for deeper engagement and productive conversations about the school's offerings and educational philosophy.
Benefits for the School:
• Increased enrolment and admissions: The virtual walkthrough can attract prospective parents who are seeking a visual representation of the school before making a decision. It can significantly impact the admissions process by increasing the chances of enrolment for the school.
• Showcasing facilities and resources: The virtual walkthrough allows the school to highlight its facilities, such as classrooms, libraries, laboratories, sports facilities, and playgrounds. This demonstrates the school's commitment to providing a conducive learning environment and helps differentiate it from other educational institutions.
• Time-efficient screening: The virtual walkthrough helps the school pre-screen prospective parents who have already seen the facilities and are genuinely interested. This allows the school to focus on qualified leads and streamline the admissions process more efficiently.
• Competitive advantage: By offering a virtual walkthrough, the school gains a competitive edge over other educational institutions that may not provide such an immersive experience. It positions the school as innovative and technologically advanced, attracting tech-savvy parents who value these aspects.
• Resource optimisation: The virtual walkthrough reduces the number of physical tours required, saving time and resources for the school. It allows staff to allocate their time more effectively to other critical tasks related to admissions and school operations.
• Long-term marketing asset: The virtual walkthrough can serve as a long-term marketing asset for the school, even beyond the admissions period. It can be shared on the school's website, social media platforms, and other marketing channels to continue attracting prospective parents and showcasing the school's facilities.
We will ensure that the virtual walkthrough accurately represents the school's physical space and is visually appealing and user-friendly to provide a positive experience for parents.
The Schools curriculum will also be digitised. To digitise the school curriculum for the entire school district, we will follow these steps:
• Assess the current curriculum and identify digital integration opportunities:
• Review the existing curriculum to determine which subjects, lessons, or activities can be enhanced through digital tools and resources.
• Identify areas where technology can improve student engagement, interactivity, and access to learning materials.
• Select digital tools and platforms:
• Research and evaluate various digital tools, software, and platforms that align with the district's curriculum goals and requirements.
• Consider factors such as ease of use, compatibility with existing systems, student and teacher support features, and cost.
• Develop a phased implementation plan:
• Create a detailed plan outlining the timeline, milestones, and resources needed for the digital curriculum implementation.
• Prioritise subjects or grade levels to be digitised first, considering factors such as teacher readiness, available technology infrastructure, and student needs.
• Provide professional development and training:
• Conduct comprehensive professional development programs to train teachers on effectively utilising digital tools and platforms in their teaching.
• Offer ongoing support and resources to ensure teachers are confident and proficient in integrating digital components into their lessons.
• Monitor, evaluate, and iterate:
• Establish a monitoring and evaluation framework to assess the impact of the digital curriculum on student learning outcomes.
• Collect feedback from teachers, students, and parents to identify areas of improvement and make necessary adjustments to the digital curriculum implementation.
It's essential that we involve key stakeholders, such as teachers, administrators, and technology specialists, throughout the process to ensure successful adoption and implementation of the digital curriculum district-wide
Chosen Digitized Teaching Methods
Digitisation of the school academic curriculum will be done using the following methods. We will need access to the curriculum to be able to give an accurate timeframe for project completion.
Live classes: Teachers will conduct real-time virtual classes using video conferencing tools. Students will join these classes from their homes or wherever they have internet access. They can ask questions, participate in discussions, and receive immediate feedback from the teacher.
Recorded classes: Some lessons will be pre-recorded by the teachers. These recorded classes can be accessed by students at their convenience. Students can watch and re-watch these lessons as needed, allowing for flexibility in their learning schedule. They can pause, rewind, and review the content at their own pace.
Basic word lessons with exams: Teachers will provide digital learning materials in the form of written lessons, presentations, or e-books. These materials will cover the curriculum content in a structured manner. Students can read and study these materials independently, reinforcing their understanding of the concepts.
Exams: Assessments or exams will be conducted digitally. Students will have designated periods to complete the exams online. The format may include multiple-choice questions, short answers, or essay-style questions, depending on the subject and grade level. The exams will be designed to evaluate students' comprehension and application of the curriculum.
In summary, students will attend live classes where they can interact with teachers in real-time, watch recorded classes for flexibility, access written lessons to study the content, and take digital exams to demonstrate their understanding of the curriculum. This approach combines different modalities to cater to various learning preferences and ensure a comprehensive digital learning experience.
