Orient Bell is all set to redesign schools with innovative educational tiles
Schools can choose the low-on-maintenance tiles featuring diagrams and visual aids, which reduce the use of chart paper and plastic charts significantly
Orient Bell Limited, one of the largest manufacturers of ceramic and vitrified tiles in the country, has launched innovative educational tiles that have been created to modernise the face of learning in schools and adapt to the pace of the gen-next students studying there. These tiles will help convert a school into a complete learning studio with multiple learning opportunities from peers as well as surroundings.
The focus is geared towards making not only the classrooms, but the entire school building more interactive while also promoting unconventional forms of education like visual literacy through corridor walls, staircases and other open spaces in the school. Traditionally, learning has only been confined to classrooms and certain spaces in the school are often overlooked and underutilised – for instance, hallways, cafeterias, performance spaces, assembly areas etc. With the use of these tiles, these spaces will be properly utilised and promote informal learning opportunities for kids.
Educational tiles benefit the teachers by creating an atmosphere of interactive learning and act as an aid to the students in terms of increased engagement. They also help in reducing violence and bullying in schools, as students are subconsciously engaged with educational tiles during their free time. While being associated with a lower maintenance cost, these tiles help in reducing the use of chart paper and plastic charts by a significant amount.
Orient Bell Limited recognises that education is the backbone of society and every child should have access to quality education. Schools can choose the low maintenance cost tiles featuring diagrams and visual aids, which reduce the use of chart paper and plastic charts significantly. Rajkiya Jubilee Inter College, Lucknow, a heritage school building founded in 1886, will feature these tiles as part of an Orient Bell Limited campaign.
CEO Aditya Gupta explained, “The future and fate of our country is in the hands of the next generation. They are the catalysts for change and, hence, it is of utmost importance to provide them with the highest quality of education available. There is a need to develop the passion for learning and make it more interactive rather than mundane and routine.”
