Diksha Portal par COVID-19 Ni Basic Talim Babat Latest Circular
In India, there are over 10 million teachers. The diversity and complexity of student background and learning levels in an Indian classroom cannot be overstated―every one of our teachers has to navigate this every day. Over the past several years many state and central government initiatives have been attempting to strengthen the capacity of teachers so that they are better able to deliver meaningful instruction to help students achieve their full potential. It is now time to consider implementing solutions, initiatives and innovations at scale so as to positively impact the professional lives of all teachers in the country. Teachers should have easy access to teaching and learning resources, and opportunities to develop professionally, if they have to fulfill their central role in the education of our children.
National Teacher Platform (NTP) branded as "Diksha" is an initiative of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. It is a state-of-the-art platform built to host Open Educational Resources (OER) and tools for Teachers in Schools, Teacher Educators in Teacher Education Institutes (TEIs) and Student Teachers in TEIs. It is built considering the whole teacher’s life cycle - from the time student teachers enroll in TEIs to after they retire as teachers.
