Body overseeing central government school chain, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) has issued a circular stating the principals, teachers and students in the 1,193 KV schools in India use the Kaizala app for better communication, the Financial Express reports.

Kaizala is a productivity application designed and launched by Microsoft for Indian markets in July 2017. The app, which can also run on 2G networks, enables work management and large-group management.

Minister of State for Human Resource Development (HRD) responsible for Higher Education, Satyapal Singh informed the Rajya Sabha that the app would enable the seamless flow of information within KVS and allow organised communication and gathering of information.

“With the help of this application, teachers and administrative staff will be able to connect with parents and vice-versa, facilitating sharing of regular updates on progress made by the students (and) various initiatives undertaken by the KVS,” the minister said.

Singh also spoke about the E-Prajna project, which will empower KVS students with modern technology. Singh said, “The KVS has launched a pilot project E-Prajna under which touch tablets pre-loaded with e-content have been provided to Class 8 students and teachers of 25 KVs (one in each region) during the year 2017-18 for classroom transactions in science and mathematics".
