Education has now become a legal human right all across the world. More and more schools are being built in even very smaller villages or communal areas just for the purpose of spreading education. It is now a law that a child who is up to 11 years old or so should get educated no matter what. You will see a lot of Governmental funded schools too where kids come to study without any tension of fees. Apart from this initiation, other kids too now are dedicated to learning that they want a very good amount of knowledge that they want to gain.

What is Istation about?

Istation is one of those initiatives that have come forward in bringing up a child to a level where he/she can be called well educated. It is basically a learning source which is taken up by many schools today. The Istation works upon “7 Essentials” -

  • Adaptive curriculum empowers purposeful instruction needed to adjust a student’s ability, layered scaffolding for differentiation and complexity, interactive lessons to digitally present the animated contents, explicit/direct instruction connecting lessons with activities for better understanding, and responsive reteaching for making the students master the concept before progressing.
