Studies have estimated that
Bharat EdTech Initiative
  • The closure of 1.5 million schools adversely affected the education of 247 million children in India
  • Only one in four students have access to digital learning
  • Almost 10 million girls in secondary school are projected to dropout post COVID-19
Growing digitization and the emergence of EdTech solutions and home-based learning has changed the way children learn in India

EdTech solutions have helped address several challenges like learning backlog and attendance in schools. With classes going virtual, teachers had to evolve with a totally new method of teaching. COVID-19 has widened the existing gap in student learning, especially with the economically underprivileged unable to benefit from EdTech solutions.
