Dubai: A student has created an app that monitors if the teacher is in class on time and following best practices at his school.
Amey Deotale, a grade 12 student of Delhi Private School Dubai (DPS Dubai), made the Classroom Operation and Punctuality (COP) app for “corridor monitors” who can use the app, immediately send an alert to supervisors about any shortcomings.
The school adopted the paperless mode to expedite the daily checks and balances — no easy task at DPS Dubai where 295 teachers are entrusted with 3,755 students.
At 7.10am, when the first bus rolls in, teachers scuttle in from across the emirates. The first class begins at 8.10am. The school day requires stringent management of time, people and study areas.
Akin to an electronic register, COP equips corridor monitors to tick off basics such as: are the teachers in the classrooms on time and are they explaining the correct objectives to the pupils.
