Smartclass Educational Services Private Ltd., an education technology start-up held its first edition of Smart Learning Schools Conclave in Kolkata. Chandrajit Mitra – Vice President, Smart Class education services Pvt. Ltd and other dignitaries graced the occasion.

Smart Learning Schools Conclave is an initiative by Smartclass Educational to discuss key challenges and latest trends in the education space. The Conclave seeks to help schools identify, discuss and solve key issues facing them in imparting high quality education to prepare children for a new generation of skills. Over 50 principals of leading schools in Kolkata attended the School Conclave whose theme was New Computational Thinking.

The 21st Century CTI Labs is a unique initiative by Smartclass Educational to enhance existing learning levels among students, making them future ready.


Computational thinking provides school students with mental skills they can use to solve an array of problems, helps children to analyse and structure information better and understand how the technology and machines around them work. The aim of developing computational thinking among students is to arm them with the skills to design and program technology to solve challenges. By starting young, children will be better prepared to thrive in a technology-filled world which is moving at a fast pace.

Also launched on the occasion was n-CAT, a customized diagnostic test for Indian students. n-CAT provides not just a score, but a detailed analysis of topic-wise conceptual understanding by students in class, tests the skill level(both knowledge & test-taking) required for high score and also helps in modifying teaching approach for each student to help overcome scoring gaps.

With an aim to help them enhance infrastructure and facilities, smartclass Educational has tied up with Versura Shiksha, to provide educational loans to schools across India.

Around 5000 schools across India are expected to participate in the first edition of Smartclass Educational’s Smart Learning School Conclaves. To be held across 80 Indian cities/towns from July to September 2017, the conclaves will cover all four regions of the country as well as the North East.
