It is 1 am in Kanpur. A teacher sits at her desk, searching online for ideas for her algebra lesson tomorrow. After a cup of tea, she discovers TES India. She types in “algebra” into the search box, and finds over three lakhs of algebra worksheets, lesson plans
and activities. After browsing through a few, she finds and downloads the
perfect lesson for her class. Later on, she remembers an excellent lesson she
taught on algebra last week. She uploads the lesson, which goes on to be
downloaded and used in classrooms nationwide.
