These five trends are expected to transform the EdTech industry and enable learners to achieve their full potential through innovative learning approaches.
The funds will be used to develop new courses, expand the company's offerings, and further its mission of improving the quality of teacher training in India.
A teacher touches not only students’ minds but also their spirits — the way they see and feel about themselves for the rest of their lives. Teachers often act as second parents, counsellors, and mentors to their students.
To sustain the current wave of digitalisation, teachers must be trained to use technology to create engaging learning environments, promote student creativity and critical thinking, and ultimately increase their employability. This will enable our country to stay competitive on the global stage.
The International Teachers' Olympiad announces cash prizes worth Rs 10,00,000 to the top 100 teachers, along with a certificate and badge of excellence. They will also get an opportunity to participate in the ‘Teacher Impact Awards‘, a global teacher recognition initiative to encourage top teachers to share their impact stories with the world and get rewarded for it.

Suraasa is an excellent example of how edtech can play a vital role in empowering teachers and supporting their personal and professional growth.
The International Teachers' Olympiad tops the list of educational Olympiads by providing teachers with a unique opportunity to enhance their skills and knowledge.

Upskilling of teachers is not just a one-time investment but a continuous process that is necessary for the successful integration of technology into education. Technology itself is not the solution. It lies in capacity building and enabling teachers to use the technology.
Our education policy has placed a strong emphasis on improving teachers' skills through CPD and other upskilling means. It is time for teachers to go outside of their comfort zones and take charge of their own professional development, not just for themselves but also for their students.
Teaching creates equal opportunities for both men and women and has the capability to attract young minds into teaching as it offers better career prospects and work conditions that makes teaching a more competitive and mainstream career choice for everyone.
The Indian edtech industry stands on the brink of a bright future, with hybrid learning bridging the gap between technology and traditional education. The education sector is poised to soar to new heights with innovative solutions leading the charge.
