Education services company Santamonica group has stepped into technology research in the education sector and has announced the launch of ‘Santa Monica-Innovance’.
Headquartered in Singapore, Santamonica-Innovance has set up its offices in Dubai, USA and European countries to partner with innovators and institutions to adapt the technology to the Indian realities and circumstances. The company said that in the past two years, 5.5 lakh schools in India have been closed without prior warning due to the pandemic, which in turn has affected more than 248 million students in the country.
“We have not been able to reach them in the same way as in the pre-pandemic period because the education system in the country lacks sufficient technological support. If this situation continues, the fate of higher education students in India will be in more crisis than the schools,” said Denny Thomas Chempazha, President of Santamonica Innovance.
Chempazha, said they have now expanded their role and are now stepping into technological innovations in the field of technological innovations for school and higher education.
“Strategic thrust from the Government of India and the Government of Kerala to deploy technology in education has been the impetus for Santamonica-Innovance to expand. It’s time for Digital India to translate into local-level practice in India,” he said.
He said Kerala will play an important role in bringing international best practices in the world to India. Called India’s New Education Policy (NEP), 2020, as a clear call to integrate technology into every level of education, the company said it was ready for the change by bringing the best technology in the world to the country sooner or later.
