Ministry of Human Resource and Development has prepared a module to introduce the study of Artificial Intelligence at the school level by joining hands with the technology leaders like Intel.
Addressing the Central Board of Secondary Education’s Teachers Awards 2018-19, Union Human Resource and Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishak said, it is a big leap in our education system that artificial intelligence which was otherwise taught at the college level, is now been introduced from class 8th.
During the event, 34 teachers were felicitated for their outstanding and innovative contribution in the field of teaching. Along with the award ceremony, three initiatives were also announced.
HRD Minister inaugurated CBSE’s Calendar of Activity, ten manuals for schools, teachers and students and Vidya Daan. Vidya Daan is a unique initiative in which a repository of content is prepared by the teachers by uploading study materials for students of class 6th to 10th on an on-line platform, Diksha App.
An awardee teacher present at the event said that the internet is a great learning tool but the role of teachers has become more significant as the young and impressionable minds should be guided while accessing the internet.
