Technology Initiative for BISA
What is Project Lightning?
Project Lightning is the culmination of BISA’s vision to integrate technology with education in order to enhance the quality of teaching, learning and administration. The objective of the project is to establish state-of-the-art Information Technology (IT) infrastructure at BIS in order increase productivity at all levels.
In order to achieve this vision, an independent
consulting firm (Universal Consulting) was appointed to undertake a
detailed study on “IT strategy for BIS”.
The consultants conducted a thorough research on the role of IT in
education (including national and international trends),
evaluated the current status of IT in BIS (including a detailed
survey of teachers and parents) and submitted a detailed report on “Technology
Adoption Plan for BIS”.
The board set up an IT Committee to oversee the implementation of Project Lightning, as per the recommendations of this report.
The members of the IT Committee are :
Ms. Paula Mariwala, Convenor
Mr. Samik Ghosh, Principal
Mr. Ninad Karpe
Mr. Ravi Marphatia
Mr. Minoo Dastur
Mr. Jay Desai

Implementation of Technology Adoption Plan
To achieve the final objective of integrating technology with education, it was recommended that we provide the following:
As a result of the network, teachers can access their work from any of these nodes and also share accessories such as printers, CD ROMS, etc. Internet access is possible from all the nodes.
A web design team “Team Thunder” was formed with four students from ICSE class of 2002 : Nikhil Sondhe, Kunal Sahastrabuddhe, Dhruv Uday Singh and Shyam Kapadia. With guidance from Mr. Ghosh and Mr. Manoj George of Computer Department, the team designed the website entirely on their own. Though some work needs to be done to add more content, the basic site has been up since last week. Follow up work will continue to be done by another “Web team” made up of students from Std. VIII and IX and led by Mr. Ghosh and Mr. George. Mr. Manoj George has been very helpful in editing and maintaining the site.
