Krithika began her career as a part of the research study on Computer Aided Learning” Programme by the Azim Premji Foundation, in July 2008. From then, she worked extensively in different genres within and around the education field. 

As part of the study, she supported teachers pedagogically, technologically and also in integrating technology with the mainstream curriculum, especially in language and math, so that they could use with ease in their classroom teaching-learning process. As part of the research, she developed content of tech cards and higher-order thinking cards and integrated into the Activity-Based Learning ladder. 

She analysed data on competency achievement and reading ability of the children and also on teacher interviews, teacher perception, using technology for classroom teaching by teachers, etc., in the state of Puducherry, which helped in preparing the report produced for the Government.

She set up and established a library-cum-activity centre at Puducherry District Institute, where apart from collecting good books for teachers and children from different sources, she initiated several educational reviews of books and films among the school teachers and promoted discussions on classroom implications. Alongside, she initiated story-telling workshops for primary school children. 

She worked as a content developer, in Tamil language for the Teachersofindia portal. During this time, she made films on teachers (who practiced good teaching), communities (of the government school), and interviews with education supporters and experienced field experts. She initiated partnerships with some government organisations like NCERT, Vigyan Prasar, for sharing resources.

Later, she was one of the review committee members, for the revision of primary math (classes 1 – 5) syllabi and textbooks, done by TNSCERT. She contributed to integrating computational thinking in primary math syllabi and the content of the textbooks, to make math simpler and connect meaningfully to real life.

Besides these, she designed and prepared Research Newsletter, which was circulated internally, as part of which she has made films on researchers. She has designed some research outputs such as booklets, and reports at the University.

Currently, she works on the University website.
