Teachers matter more to student achievement than any other aspect of schooling. The outcome of the students is a direct fruit of the Teacher's effectiveness. However, as per the data, the absence of adequately qualified and trained teachers is clearly the biggest of concerns in the schooling system of our Country. Pre-service teacher training programs run in a fragmented system of 18000+ teacher education institutions, which has around 13 Lakh seats. The quality of teacher preparation can be gauged by an abysmal low pass-percentage in Teacher Eligibility Test, which is a test that every new teacher needs to take.
Teachers, therefore, require innovative technological support to improve their attitudes, knowledge and skills.
