What is the EdTech Summit Series?

The Summit is an annual event which is centered around the celebration of learning. Started 6 years ago by the initiative of students from across the country, the event has also constantly evolved over the years.



To deliberate on the need for continuous and sustained professional development


To showcase best practices in technology integration


To start a dialogue regarding what digital leadership in schools should look like


To discuss decision-making strategies regarding educational technology

Summit execution

The execution of the summit can be categorized into 4 stages


Over the course of the year, Mahattattva runs Design Thinking for Social Change bootcamps across the country.


Bootcamps help private institutions across India partner with those with less resources (such as government and charity institutions) and encourages them to work together to solve issues that we face as a society.


Each participant in the Bootcamp, along with its partner develops a design-thinking project. They work on the project for an academic year.


At the Summit, there are both schools that present their projects to their peers and those that attend to start their own design-thinking journey. The event also sees the education sector come together and engages in workshops by leading experts.

Design Thinking for Social Change

Design thinking relies on our ability to be intuitive, to recognize patterns, to construct ideas that have emotional meaning as well as functionality, to express ourselves in media other than words or symbols. We need students to think about real and authentic challenges in the world today. We need them to think about the challenges that we face as individuals and society as a whole; also global challenges of health, poverty and education.

Students have to be encouraged to think of developing new strategies that result in differences that matter. Design Thinking for Social Change provides tools for visualisation and applying design-thinking methodology to specific challenges. Teaching students empathy during the process helps identify these challenges.

Our Process :


Understanding the role of people in successful design thinking


Transitioning through the phases of inspiration, ideation, and implementation


Implementing design thinking processes, technology and tools to drive innovation


Using tools like visualization, mapping, and storytelling to create and present


Applying design thinking methodology to specific challenges


Testing, refining and improving new ideas, models, and processes
