Developing World Class Schools

Addressing the issues of education in the twenty-first century of India, IBCI has shaped a series of conferences on quality education and the role of holistic development while integrating technology. IBCI is glad to present the 7th edition of EDUTPRO INDIA - 2020 bringing educators from around the region to explore the latest techniques and innovative methodologies for today’s learning. Today students are growing up with technology and expect it from their teachers in school. Having a range of tools and solutions available, teachers need to know how to effectively integrate innovations in their teaching. What do you need to do to engage with your students better and improve their learning exprerience? What works in the classroom? How to engage students? How to improve quality of the teachers? How to retain Manpower? What role does technology play in learning?How to secure schools and its students from external threats? Methods to create safe premises?

Educators and Academicians attend EDUTPRO INDIA - 2020 not just for its world class content, speakers, showcase of solutions and technologies but also to network and build meaningful relationships within the education community.

If you’re looking for more effective ways to incorporate technology into your teaching and creating a world-class school then "EDUTPRO INDIA - 2020" is the only best place! Be open to new ideas, build your own personalised learning agenda – Be a part of the 2 day conference to get something unique in school – Be a part of the School Brilliance Award, get multiple seminar sessions, workshops, Round table discussions, Panel discussion and get back to school with fresh, practical, tested and creative ideas that you can implement right away in your classroom. Be the change and Take the Lead. IBCI has to it's credit a confluence about 3000+ schools in attendance over 6 conferences covering different states. EDUTPRO witnessed a host of international educators who spoke about the ideal world-class schools and what are the key elements that are required to make that difference whilst having passionate speakers from across the country that spoke about the change at the grass root level.

EDUTPRO INDIA – 2020 has created a unique platform for noted educators and academicians from all over India to present cutting edge technologies for teaching in the new-age learner world. Discussions have sparked some unimaginable possibilities for the future of Indian education. These interventions have not only responded to the urgent need for our schools to address global standards and innovations but have also created new benchmarks for evaluating school success and learning effectiveness.


It is difficult to predict the future. In our everyday lives we implicitly assume that the "future will be like the present." So what will education be like in the year 2020? What should education be like in 2020?

EDUtPRO INDIA - 2020 is a confluence of educators, researcher's, solution providers, NGO's and policy makers to find possible solutions and answers to the most challenging, critical and relevant questions we face in education today.

We still educate our children through timetables, bells that mark periods of "fixed time", in a batchsetting symbolic of Industrial age and use tools of the “Information age, in a Knowledge age.

Knowledge Age worker-citizens need to be able to locate, assess and represent new information quickly. They need to be able to communicate this to others and to be able to work productively in collaboration with others. They need to be adaptable, creative and innovative. Capabilities to be able to understand things at a 'systems' or big picture' level. Most importantly, they need to be able to think and learn for themselves, sometimes with the help of external authorities and/or systems of rules but more often, without this help.

A New mindset is required, one that can take into account the new meaning of using knowledge, the new meaning of rightly designed curriculum and the new meaning and art of learning.

Security in Educational Institutions, the right approach for schools in hiring the correct faculty. The necessary background check and the right approach for schools in securing their premises is one of the key areas being discussed at EDUtPRO India 2020 this year.

Join us at EDUtPRO INDIA - 2020 to be world class
