The ClassEdge Classroom Championship was launched in 2016 by Tata ClassEdge to recognize teachers who have creatively adopted technology in classroom teaching.

In 2017, 2,500 teachers participated from 350+ schools, and this year there were 4,700 teachers from 510 schools.
Mr. Nirav Khambhati, CEO, Tata ClassEdge said, “Technology is obviously a powerful tool in the hands of effective teachers. But only when you see a teacher with 35 years of experience using digital assets with as much ease as a young digital native do you realize their true transformative potential. That’s the beauty of a competition like ClassEdge Classroom Championship. We congratulate all the teachers who participated and hope this platform empowers them to transform every student and classroom”.
