Technology integration is the use of technology tools in general content areas in education in order to allow students to apply computer and technology skills to learning and problem-solving. Technology provides instant access to information, so its presence in the classroom is so vital. Smartphones, computers, and tablets are already an omnipresent element of everyday life for students and teachers alike. It’s only natural that technological devices in the classroom are explored to create meaningful learning experiences for students of all ages.
G.D Goenka Indore, utilizes different types of technology in the classroom, including a virtual classroom, which creates learners to engage in their learning objectives actively. The implementation of technology also creates pathways for differentiated instruction to meet the unique needs of students as individual learners within a broader classroom climate.

Our Library cum Media center not only has a vast range of real books but also quite storytelling corners. We use a special Library Management Software which enables the students to access library resources online, from anywhere. Information is the heartbeat of meaningful learning in schools. There is Campus-wide broadband E-connectivity with Wi-Fi for anywhere anytime computer learning. All students will have supervised access. They will be familiar with the software packages used in modern business application such as World- Processing, Power Point Spreadsheets, Databases and Presentations. There is a Hi-Tech E-Library where students have access to online encyclopaedias and reference material in addition to a wide gamut of books & magazines.
Avishkaar Robotronics Lab is one of the leading labs that deal with STEM (science, Technology engineering & mathematics) education. Robotics is a great way to get kids excited about STEM topics. Studies show that it is highly effective in developing teamwork and self-confidence.
Robotics is not just about building a robot. It brings together knowledge in different fields by combining mechanical, electronic, electrical and programming skills. It involves a variety of math, information technology, and engineering concepts. Robotronics Lab is an innovative project of setting up a Robotics Laboratory inside the school for grades IV-XII.
The Robotics content is mapped with the existing Science, Mathematics and Computer Science curriculum. The lab is facilitated by trained teacher/s and gives hands-on experience introducing students to skills necessary to make complex Machine Designs, different programming paradigms and robots.
