THE NEED
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. 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.
THE ACTION

To help improve the conceptual understanding and instructional delivery of teachers by providing bite-sized, curated, contextual and curriculum-linked educational resources using an interactive and engaging mobile platform.
