Azim Premji Foundation , with support from the National Knowledge Commission, has developed TeachersofIndia.org that will provide an online platform for teachers to share best practices and generate discussion in the teaching community.

TeachersofIndia.org was launched by Pratibha Devisingh Patil, President of India, at Rashtrapati Bhavan on the occasion of Teachers’ Day, 5 September 2008. While launching the portal the President said, “It is definitely a medium to improve the quality of education in schools and will also improve the teacher-student interaction in class.”

The initial phase of the portal envisages a space for teachers to express their ideas and share their thoughts on any subject that touches their professional lives. Phase one involves the uploading of material created by and for teachers in five languages — Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada.

During the subsequent phases of the portal, TeachersofIndia.org will enable teachers to interact with each other as well as provide access to other communities such as students, parents, teacher and educators. The number of languages offered by the portal will also gradually increase until all Indian languages are covered.
