Monthly Newsletter | January 2022 | Volume 32
Happy New Year!
We are glad to present to you the January edition of the School 360 newsletter.
The previous year 2021 showed the resilience of the education sector in adapting to the changes warranted by the effects of the covid-19 pandemic. Major changes were made in the board exam patterns for classes X and XII. The central government is in the process of formulating four national curricula: for school education, early childhood care and education, teacher education, and adult education. Rework on school curriculum is being done after 16 years. The focus areas of schools will include competency-based education, flexibility in choice of subjects in secondary classes, multilingualism, integrating knowledge of the nation, and internship with artisans for skill development, among others. Education is undergoing a huge transformation to make students future-ready.
In this edition, we have included these topics: Rework on Syllabus as per NEP by ‘Mandate Group’; New Indian School Curriculum: First Look; CBSE and Meta Collaborate to Train Students and Teachers in AR and Digital Well-being; AIU Entrusted with ‘Equivalence’ SOP for Different boards; MCQs Added to Semester 2 Exams of ICSE and ISC; and Postcards to PM by Students under ‘75 Lakh Postcards Campaign’.
We hope you will find this edition of the newsletter informative and enrich us with your valuable feedback.
