Abhinav Bindra to address over 20,000 teachers of LEAD Powered schools on September 5

Mumbai : Marking the celebration of Teachers’ Day on September 5, EdTech LEAD will host a motivational session by Abhinav Bindra for more than 20,000 teachers, principals and school owners across more than 2,000 partner schools.

Mr Bindra will share insights into his journey from being an athlete to managing his own academy and mentoring Indian grassroots athletes. He will be talking about his life lessons and experiences both as someone who manages a non-profit academy as well as an athlete, the obstacles that came his way and what helped him stay true to his goals.

LEAD will provide the audience with the opportunity to interact with Bindra to address their self-doubts and challenges in a new teaching environment.

To upskill and empower teachers and principals to continue providing excellent learning to students, LEAD is also launching a certification program under LEAD Academy. The program will help them develop a growth mindset, learn skills to support online teaching and also gain emotional and social support.

LEAD Co-founder and CEO Sumeet Mehta said, ”School owners across India have gone through tough times during the pandemic with having to hold the entire ecosystem together as an educator to students and a mentor to teachers.

I am sure it will be interesting to hear Bindra on how he transitioned from being an athlete to a mentor to athletes.”
”State governments and various other committees are now looking at a roadmap to reopen schools safely and there could be no better gift for our teachers on this special day than reopening schools.

The integration of technology in pedagogy will further open up opportunities for young minds, making them future-ready and help them excel in life,” he said.
