Teacher Awards


Gone are the days where the teaching learning process happened only inside the class room. Now a days the teaching learning more happens in internet, gadgets and at own phase.

In our country we have plethora of experts in teaching community who could explain a concept in a subject in an easy, simple understandable way for the students. Such resources are in an abundant need by students’ community in both schools and higher education sector. ICT Academy aims to make the best way of explain a concept by an expert in one part of the country available to the entire nation in form of short videos of 10 minutes duration through online and make a repository of such video classes which will be available to the students at free of cost and also for the teaching community to take forward the best practices.

ICT Academy invites such teachers and faculty members to contribute the students’ community to help them understand various concepts in various subjects in an easier and simple ways and remember the same for years. ICT Academy, with intent to encourage the faculty members, has a new initiative “DigiGuru - National Teaching Video Contest”, to show case the best practices of faculty members in the form of short videos. The top unique practices of faculty members will be awarded in Bridge, the largest Industry-Institute Interaction event of the country.
