Firki was envisioned to spread Teach For India's best teaching practices to all teachers and educators.
Firki was officially launched with the first version of its courses.
Firki courses (aligned to the NCERT Curriculum) were piloted with teachers from diverse organisations.
Firki evolved into a blended learning model with the revised courses based on the pilot program feedback.
Firki launched two big programs -
'Discussions' (online groups) for teachers to connect with peers and experts
'Webinars' to connect teachers with experts from diverse disciplines.
Launched 'Resources', a library of subjects and grades-specific teaching and learning resources readily available for teachers and students in partnership with 20+ organizations.
Courses in 5 regional languages (namely, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Marathi) went live. The Android version of the Firki app was launched.
In response to the pandemic, Firki:
hosted its first-ever virtual conference, inspirED, to reimagine education with all the stakeholders from the education sector.
launched 'Learning during Lockdown', an initiative of 25+ webinars conducted to support our stakeholders under three broad buckets - 'teach from home', 'upskilling' and 'community wellness'.
