Poor understanding of basic concepts, high dropout rates and lack of qualified teachers are just some of the many problems our government schools face

Our Success Stories
Infosys Science Foundation (ISF), a not-for-profit trust, was set up in February 2009 by Infosys and some members of its board. ISF promotes Science & Maths learning through its Gnanadeepa Teacher Training Program. CTD has partnered with ISF to design and deliver programs to improve the quality of Science & Math teaching in Karnataka.
About 650 middle & high school teachers of Government schools from all over Karnataka assembled in Mysore for 10 days in August-2014 for CTD’s training program on Science teaching.
‘Your training program is innovative. We had not studied Science and Math in this way before. You have made us aware of a whole new way of teaching these subjects.’
– A Government school teacher from Mysore, Karnataka, Aug-2014
In 2015, the focus of Gnanadeepa Teacher Training program turned to pre-service teachers. CTD designed a training program for B Ed teacher-trainees. The belief is that these teacher-trainees, as they prepare to start their career as teachers, will greatly benefit from our innovative teaching methods.
Teacher-trainees from 10 different B Ed colleges experienced and understood Science & Math like they had never before.
‘Connecting the Dots is doing a very good job which will help all future teachers, so please try to conduct such sessions for every batch of B.Ed. teacher trainees. Thank you’
