India holds an important place in the global education industry with one of the largest networks of higher education institutions and a fast-growing ed-tech market. The pandemic acted as a buoyant force for the ed-tech industry to flourish and for traditional education brands to reinvent. With so many names around, the competition makes it hard for brands to stand out.

On Teacher’s Day, an opportunity not to be missed, education brands came up with campaigns to engage with their consumers and make an impact. Brands from other categories such as banking and IT also came up with campaigns to connect with consumers on Teacher’s Day.

LaunchMyCareer has joined hands with Merakii to launch a heart-warming Teacher’s Day campaign, #MyTeacherMySuperHero. The campaign is dedicated to teachers who are the guiding light of our lives, as well as our career journeys.

ClassPlus’ video campaign Guru Dakshina offers a token of gratitude to all the ‘gurus’ for their invaluable lessons and contribution to their students’ successes. The campaign focuses on an ancient Indian tradition of repaying one's teacher as a manner of expressing heartfelt gratitude when one's education is completed. Education went through a paradigm shift in the last couple of years due to the advent of technology and pandemic-induced lockdowns. Schools, colleges, and coaching institutes became virtual and teaching started happening over video calls. It was a sudden change, one that left a lot of teachers who didn’t know how to navigate online teaching baffled and dispirited. The video depicts one such teacher who is depressed at the prospect of never being able to teach again since he has never embraced technology for online teaching. He is all set to leave the town where he taught thousands of students over decades and move to a city until a couple of his old students pay him a visit. The heart-warming video honours the teacher-student relationship and reminds viewers that they owe their success to their teachers’ lessons.

The film leads with an endearing scenario where Laddu, a curious kid and the film’s protagonist, is willing to go to any length to find the answers to his questions. While his curiosity leads him to certain clues, it is his teacher and Microsoft Teams that finally help him understand how the world we live in works. The film is a fitting ode to how teachers, with the support of technology, have been integral to the learning journey of children across India and celebrates the spirit of every teacher who continues to open their hearts and home to ensure learning never stops.
