Monthly Newsletter | February 2023 | Volume 42
We are glad to present to you the February edition of the School 360 Newsletter.
Significant educational reforms based on the new National Education policy (NEP) have swept across the education sector of our nation. Stem-based learning and skill-based education is gaining momentum. Edtech as a sector has been very impactful, from providing e-learning platforms, student engagement tools in the classroom to skill development and continuous learning opportunities for higher education. These coupled with positive government policies has led to the acceleration of transformation in the field of education. Recently, ‘Jaadui Pitara’: a play-based learning teaching material for the children of foundational stage (age 3-8 years) developed under the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) was launched by the education minister. It is available in many Indian languages to enable children of foundational stage to learn in their mother tongue. Learning is now becoming more student-centered, dynamic, collaborative and inclusive, giving way for creativity to blossom.
In this edition, we have covered these topics: India’s First National Assessment Regulator-PARAKH; Education Department: Schools to Inform Students about G20; Education Department: Align Ages for class 1 to 6+; Education Budget 2023-Highlights; “Beyond Classrooms”- Innovative Initiative in WB Schools; G20 Education Working Group Meetings in India
We hope you will find this edition of the newsletter informative and enrich us with your valuable feedback.
