Online conceptual Maths and Science program launched by CBSE
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has launched an interactive online learning program called ‘Eklavya Series’ in collaboration with IIT Gandhinagar to help in conceptual understanding of various topics from Maths and Science curriculum for Classes VI to XII.
The aim of this series is to demonstrate how conceptual teaching can be implemented in the classrooms. The sessions will be held every Sunday afternoon starting September 26, 2021. The first session will explore Newton’s Laws of Motion. The session would look at why Tokyo Olympics gold medallist Neeraj Chopra threw his javelin at an angle of 36 degrees in the finals event.
Letter by CBSE Director Academics Joseph Emmanuel to the heads of all CBSE-affiliated schools reads, “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… The focus of the series will be to clarify NEP and showcase how to effectively implement NEP 2020 across the schools.
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
