Meghshala believes that teachers shape the future of their students everyday. Our Meghshala teachkits contextualise world class pedagogic practices into everyday classroom learning with the use of images, videos, activities and strategies. This helps convert the classroom into an active learning space. Providing teaching ideas to effectively execute these lessons in the class ensures that teachers receive in-context training. With this, teachers can deliver excellent lessons in the classroom leading to transformational outcomes for students, at scale!

about the innovation

What is Meghshala?

The developing world is on the cusp of new breakthroughs in a plethora of fields from medicine to agriculture enabled by a wave of innovations in technology. Quality education, however, continues to be elusive. 

At Meghshala, we believe that the most effective way to transform our education system at scale is to empower the heart of our education system: our teachers. And we do this through our core innovation : TeachKits. 

TeachKits are world-class, curriculum-aligned, multimedia teaching resources that are delivered to teachers via an easy-to-use android application. The teacher uses these lessons either as an in-classroom facilitation tool or as a pre-classroom preparation tool to enhance her classroom instructional expertise. 

We believe that continuous use of our TeachKits helps teachers upskill themselves from simple content delivery to classroom facilitation expertise and instructional leadership.

The crisis in our education system cannot be solved by a product alone. It has to be addressed by creating a robust process around the entire adoption. To ensure sustainability, we concentrate on user experience, feedback, and providing real-time resources to maximise efficiency. 

Our team of Implementation Associates and Managers are available both on-site and on-call for teachers. Individual and customised attention is given to teachers based on their requirements which is decided through the usage and feedback collected through the Meghshala App.

Going forward, Meghshala will provide this solution to Govt. Resource persons and train them on efficient usage to ensure sustainability and accountability of this innovation.

Meghshala believes that teachers shape the future of their students everyday. 

Our focus on teachers creates the much-desired multiplier effect we require to address the problem of education in India. We focus on custom training and scalability at the same time. 

We hope that you take look at the Meghshala App that is available on the Google Playstore and find our work useful and meaningful.
