The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has agreed to add coding and artificial intelligence (AI) into the syllabus for Classes 6 to 8 as part of the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020. This decision recognizes the importance of mathematics and computational thinking in preparing students for future careers in AI, machine learning, and data science.
Early education will include the introduction of AI, coding, financial literacy, and data science, according to the NEP 2020. CBSE has picked 33 disciplines, including AI, to help pupils build their skills. Class 6 kids will learn about proper drug storage, while Class 8 students will learn about data science.
The topics also include augmented reality, Kashmiri embroidery, satellite applications, humanism, and Covid-19. The coding modules in schools will include 12-15 hours of hands-on activity, with a 70/30 split between practical and theoretical work. Microsoft will create the coding curriculum to ensure that students receive a high-quality education in AI and coding.
Why It Is Important T Study AI And Coding From Classes 6 To 8
Teaching coding and AI to younger individuals through the board’s decision will encourage creativity, enhance problem-solving skills, and equip them for future professions. The NEP 2020 acknowledges India’s leadership and potential in upcoming fields such as AI, machine learning, and data science by recognizing the significance of mathematics and computational thinking.
The policy aims to emphasize these subjects throughout the school years, starting with basic education and promoting mathematical thinking through games and puzzles. Additionally, coding activities will be included in the middle stages to achieve this goal.
