CBSE to Introduces Experiential Learning for Students from 2019-20 session
CBSE to start Experiential Learnings from 2019-20 Academic session – The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) recently announced that it would implement a new teaching process in its affiliated schools from the upcoming academic session i.e. 2019- 2020. Anurag Tripathi, secretary of CBSE stated that the board will be focusing on ‘Experiential Learning’ process in order to make teaching a student friendly process. The board would be having a punch line every year.
Mr Tripathi stated that the students need to learn from what they are studying and learn to use it practically. They should not indulge in the process of rote learning. They should not learn anything thinking that they just have to pass an exam and then forget it later on. CBSE will also take steps to focus on the academic improvement of its students and would soon implement a policy regarding the same.
CBSE had implemented a scheme named ‘Samagra Siksha’ from its previous academic year 2018-19. It consists of a provision for supporting the Union Territories and States in order to intervene in the fields such as counselling and guidance in its affiliated schools. It will encourage the subject teachers to function as the first level counsellors in the schools. Apart from that, several states have implemented their own projects with specific allocated funds to address various problems that are arising among adolescent students.
CBSE has taken several steps in past as well in order to make the teaching process student friendly. Authorities have issued several guidelines in order to transact the curriculum in such a manner that students can grasp them easily. The teachers have been asked to promote active learning by focusing on different methodologies of teaching in order to create and construct knowledge among the students.
The CBSE teachers have also been asked to follow certain inclusive principles and also not label the students with certain tags such as ‘bright students,’ ‘slow learners’ or ‘problem kids.’
