School edTech startup LEAD plans to upskill 40,000 teachers

India based edTech startup, LEAD has announced its plan to upskill 40,000 teachers across the country and free up 150 teaching hours for each teacher in 2022. 

The announcement was made at the LEAD Innovation Conference held virtually for 4,000+ schools on November 19.

LEAD is constantly upskilling teachers at its partner schools through the LEAD Academy, a first-of-its-kind initiative in School EdTech,” LEAD said.

The School EdTech major also announced the launch of iHomework that will help teachers save 1 hour every day i.e. 150 hours for each teacher in a year that they can now use for something more productive.


Teachers spend considerable time preparing and evaluating homework daily. 

The app helps them track who has completed the homework, who hasn’t & triggers reminders accordingly. It also can correct objective questions & small word answers by reading almost any handwriting. 

In other cases, teachers can zoom in to read & correct on the app and reward students for their performance. The feature also suggests learning gaps in students & gives a remedial plan basis for the tasks.

Speaking on the launch, LEAD Co-founder & CEO Sumeet Mehta said, “At LEAD, we are constantly innovating to empower each stakeholder in the School EdTech space – Students with better learning in the classroom & at home, Teachers with relevant skills & resources and schools with the required tools to manage their admissions effectively.”

“For Teachers, our goal in 2022 is to upskill them with relevant skills & free up 150 hours per teacher which can be used for something much more productive & meaningful. With our upcoming innovations, we hope we can empower them to become super teachers and in turn help students become future leaders,” Mehta added.
