The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has launched the ‘Eklavya series’, which is an interactive online educational programme to help in conceptual understanding of various topics.
The CBSE has teamed up with IIT Gandhinagar for the Eklavya Series which focuses on clarifying National Education Policy (NEP) and showcase how effectively it can be implemented across the schools.
“The National Education Policy 2020 envisions a transformational shift in education. The goal is to nurture in our students creativity, out-of-box thinking, conceptual understanding and learning how to learn,” said CBSE in a circular.
According to CBSE, the interactive online educational programme will contain:
– Numerous hands-on activities, projects, models which help in conceptual understanding of various topics
– Thought provoking questions, assignments which promote out-of-box creative thinking (Why Neeraj Chopra threw javelin at 36 degree)
– Inspiring DIY (do it yourself) project videos using local material which relate the curriculum to life.
The content will be of varying levels and will cover topics in Science and Mathematics Curriculum of classes VI-XII. Therefore, students from these grades should avail this opportunity to register and participate for conceptual clarity and joyful learning, the circular read.
The sessions will be held online every Sunday afternoon starting September 26, and will cover topics from science and mathematics curriculum.
The CBSE has asked the Principals to avail this opportunity to fulfil the requisite number of teacher professional development hours for their teachers by asking teachers to enroll for this course. For the teachers, successful completion of the course with submission of homework will be considered equivalent to 30 hours of Teachers Training/Capacity Building Program.
