About the innovation

Mahattattva's Ed Tech Summit Series

The Educational Technology Summit Series is an intellectual property of Mahattattva Educational Advisory Pvt. Ltd. Mahattattva is a boutique consultancy for schools that works in the field of digital leadership, technology integration in schools, monitoring and evaluation, school audits and teacher professional development.

The Educational Technology Summit Series, an annual affair, has successfully witnessed five summits, every year since 2014. The summit was conceptualized with four main objectives: (i) to start a dialogue regarding what digital leadership in schools should look like; (ii) to discuss decision-making strategies regarding educational technology; (iii) to showcase best practices in technology integration; and (iv) to deliberate on the need for continuous and sustained professional development. Accordingly, four strands were developed, namely, Digital Leadership, Decision-making regarding Educational Technology, Integrated Technology in Classrooms, and Professional Development in Educational Technology.

The Educational Technology Summit Series initiative has been selected by the Centre for Technology, Innovation and Competition (CTIC) at University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) to be converted into a case study. The innovation also recently received accolades at BETT Asia 2019, wherein Deepti Sawhney received the Leadership Award.

Implementation steps

In this step, the students in school meet with partner school (s) to decide a problem statement. They have dialogue over the challenges in the community and they explore the ways of solving them.
Gather Data

The students get together and research the problem. They conduct audits, look at trends, conduct observations and interviews.

Define the Opportunity

The students from partner schools define their problem statement. They frame needs and insights into an actionable problem statement, which can lead to action.


The students from partner schools run trials to test possible solutions to their problem statement. They work on various combinations and discuss the way forward.


The brainstorming continues with the students coming up with different solutions to the problem. They generate volume and variety of ideas, assemble diverse groups, use different stimuli for ideation to co-create.

Evaluate/Refine Ideas

The students design criteria for feasibility, linking with the data gathered. They develop criteria for desirability, feasibility, viability to guide them in the process.


The students now test the models and run trials. They visualise possible solutions by creating models and running test trials.

Assess Outcomes

The students gather feedback from the users of their prototype. The feedback from users is used for further iterations.


The project prototype is now implemented to gather more feedback. The Implementation of the project is used to gather feedback, and enhance the process.

Iterate for Scalability and Sustainability

The students then test it for scalability and sustainability. They repeat the process to streamline it. Finally, they have to prove that it can be scaled up and sustained.
