The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is all set to introduce 3 new courses for Class 11 students from the academic session 2020-21. Design Thinking, Physical Activity Trainer and Artificial Intelligence are the 3 new courses CBSE will be introducing for Class 11.
Director Training and Skill Education, CBSE Biswajit Saha said, “To make the new generation more creative, innovative and physically fit, and to keep pace with the global developments and requirements at workplace, the board is introducing the three new subjects”
“While thinking is a skill that all humans possess, the 21st century’s requirement is critical thinking and problem-solving. Design Thinking is a systematic process of thinking that opens up the horizons of creativity and enables even the most conditioned thinkers to bring about new and innovative solutions to the problems at hand,” he said.
According to Saha, the Physical Activity Trainer course will not only help to develop skills of a trainer but also a life skill.
He also added that “Artificial Intelligence is also a simulation by machines of the unlimited thinking capacity of humans. Physical Activity is a must if the body and mind are to be kept healthy. With this view in mind, the course on Physical Activity Trainer has been prepared. It will not only help in developing the skill of a trainer, but will also become a life skill as it will imbibe the idea of keeping fit for life.”
