The main aim of Edulearn is to promote and disseminate experience and innovations and Research in all educational fields and disciplines. The conference included pedagogical innovations, emerging learning/teaching technologies, research in education, and university-industry collaborations.

The Innovations Conclave 2018 by Parikrma Humanity Foundation and Tata Communications
Newer paradigms of learning are now needed with respect to tackling the approach to education in India. With growing focus on 21st century skills, we must turn the tables around in contemporary education. This includes laying a stronger emphasis on critical thinking, scientific discovery, application of creativity and innovation in education concepts.
Under the aegis of Global Citizenship Education, a collaborative initiative between Parikrma Humanity Foundation & Tata Communications, we want to attempt reversing thinking trends across schools. The objective is not just creating opportunities for the marginalized, but also to prepare a model that can be replicated across different schools to celebrate larger values of innovation and discovery. While government schools struggle with the lack of basics, mainstream schools are throttled with misplaced priorities of their students’ achievements.
Under the aegis of Global Citizenship using ICT- over 50 schools from across the country were invited to contribute and participate in coveting for this Annual Award.
