EdIndia, the strategic CSR arm of Sterlite Power, has collaborated with Uttarakhand Education
Department, in order to address the teaching-learning challenges in post-COVID classrooms.
EdIndia launched a state-level online orientation session for over 28,000 primary teachers of the
state on 3rd November 2020. Dr. Mukul Sati, Additional Project Director Universal Education,
Uttarakhand, and Seema Jaunsaari, Director – State Council of Educational Research & Training,
Uttarakhand, – formally launched the post-COVID Teaching package in the session, while addressing
the participants online. The enthusiasm and active participation of the 4,000 teachers, who joined
online on EdIndia’s YouTube channel, was evident from their comments in the chat box.
When schools re-open, teaching would be a challenging task due to students’ learning loss which has
happened during the long academic break. This Post-COVID Package will help the primary teachers
of the state to address the academic and emotional needs of the students, in classrooms.
What is the EdIndia post-COVID package about?
The package provides carefully designed teaching plans and resources for teachers, in context of
post-COVID situations. This will help teachers to build platforms for teaching new competencies by
re-strengthening the previously learned areas and connecting them with the new ones. This content
will be delivered in series of courses and activity booklets.
With this collaboration, EdIndia is now in partnership with four state governments and has been
successfully creating a niche in the EdTech sector. EdIndia Foundation, an ed-tech non-profit
supported by Sterlite Power, leverages ed-tech to impact education at scale. It is a strategic CSR arm of Sterlite Power Group Companies and works nationally with field offices in Rajasthan and
