Apart from imparting education, an institute ERP has multiple things planned for their student’s productive development. Just like knowing the LMS full form, which is a learning management system, is not enough to use the system, knowledge is incomplete without the proper application of it in real life. This is why, although students learn and score good enough marks in their institutions, they need a lot of other skills to survive in real life and become successful in the future.
Parents also expect a lot more from institution ERP. They expect their children’s overall performance in life to improve. This happens only through proper coordination and application of hard skills and soft skills, which they attain through learning, observation, and experience on school grounds.
Although the pandemic had taken away a lot of motivation from students and teachers, things are falling back in place once again as everyone becomes familiar with the digitalized systems. Here are a few other things that even the digital means of institutions can teach students beyond textbooks;
The school in itself is a mini community where students interact with teachers, other classmates, and sometimes schoolmates from different grades. This can be a mini depiction of our society in general. Man is a social animal, and to survive we always need to remain in society. Students learn to communicate, cooperate, and have empathy and other qualities which are the basics of being a member of our society.
One might consider being a part of this society a simple thing. This imagery or perception of reality changes when students grow up because society means different things to them. For example, when a child is in kindergarten they had no perception of society and their world mostly consists of their parents and friends and sometimes the teachers. In middle school, they try to step out into the world, and as teenagers, they have already picked on some real-life experiences outside of a school community to understand some aspects of society.
This entire process of going through life can be eased through similar experiences in a school community. Most importantly, students learn to adjust and make decisions on logical reasoning.
An institute ERP might have a particular set of rules, varying from one institute to another. Every student is obliged to follow these rules, not because the institution told them so, but because there is a need to be disciplined and systematic in life. Obeying rules in a school teaches children two things. First and foremost, they should have a disciplined life at home too, and every decision must not be spontaneous. People can do a lot by focusing on their goals. Secondly, you live in a society, and to be a part of a community or nation we must follow the rules of the state.
Patience and boldness
These are two almost opposite characteristic traits that every person must have in equal percentages in them, portrayed only in required situations. Back in school, students tend to be bold when answering questions and performing activities. This boldness is maintained when they come out of this school and shows similar confidence in a work environment and personal life.
Patience, on the other hand, is not taught but practiced through actions. Students learn to be patient in the assembly line while exiting and entering the school while filling out forms and waiting for their turn to read or perform a group activity. They learn to be patient out of personal consideration of their attitude and empathetic feelings towards other individuals involved in the activity. The development of these emotions is very important, especially among young children. An institution does a good enough job in teaching those.
Cooperation and leadership
It is a form of adjustment but generally comes under some rules and circumstances, such as a closed work environment. Cooperation does not mean giving up on someone else’s rules and regulations, it implies that an individual is willing to accept, learn, relearn and compromise provided it leads to a more effective outcome.
A student first needs to lead themselves in a positive direction and then perform leadership activities in a community. Leadership comes with a lot of responsibility and proper decision-making skills. Remember all those times students decide to prioritize subjects and categorize them in every part of the day? This is a small example of how students first lead themselves towards success by allocating properly.
