about the innovation

What is TeachPitch - Digital Skills Platform?

TeachPitch is a cloud-based learning platform that helps teachers and schools identify the best online resources available through the process of curation, artificial intelligence and online training. 

Our website was founded by a former teacher who, constantly constrained for time and budget, struggled to find and manage the best and most relevant answers to his questions among the abundance of learning resources, platforms and content already available on the Internet. 

Team TeachPitch offers its users a teacher-curated library system accessible through a community technology. Our platform allows you to see, save, rate and share the most relevant digitally available educational resources while discovering the personal learning ideas and questions from other teachers from around the world.

We're also very proud that our software is currently being used in hundreds of schools all over the world.
