Although these results of the study conducted in one school may not be generalized to other school contexts, the lessons learned in the study will be a strong empirical evidence of research of KM implementation, especially in schools.
Because of the limited number of prior studies and the importance of the pioneering work of launching KM implementation, this paper tries to address the research gap by using theory building from cases as a research strategy rather than theory testing research, especially in “how”and“why” in the steps of kicking off KM implementation in an unexplored research area.

The purpose of this paper is to emphasize the need for knowledge management (KM) in the teaching‐learning process in technical educational institutions (TEIs) in India, and to assert the impact of information technology (IT) based KM intervention in the teaching‐learning process.
Despite the fact that schools should be places where learning occurs, most schools have overlooked the importance of knowledge.
In contrast, commercial firms have recognized knowledge as a strategic intangible asset and a key resource of the enterprises.
The paper helps academicians to understand the importance of IT‐supported KM concepts, tools and practices towards quality teaching and learning. https://doi.org/10.1108/09513541211213372 Download as .
It provides useful inputs to TEIs, which must recognize that implementation of KM will influence knowledge sharing among faculty, researchers, practitioners, experts, professionals and students and enable quality education for students.
The paper emphasizes the urgent need for improvement in quality of education in TEIs in India using the tools and processes of knowledge management.
The importance of the proposed framework lies in augmenting the teaching‐learning process, improving productivity, enhancing communication among academia, researchers and professionals, enhancing student perception and understanding of subjects, and providing a common platform for pooling individual knowledge towards a common knowledge base.
