A Collaboration of CBSE & Facebook to Bring Online Programs in Augmented Reality 

As per the CBSE brochure, to further their commitment towards digital inclusion and digital empowerment, CBSE and Facebook have partnered to launch curriculum and related training in Augmented Reality, Digital Safety & Online Well-Being and introduce Instagram Toolkit for Teens.

With Facebook, there will be an online programme for augmented reality while with Instagram, workshops on screentime spent on this photo-sharing platform will be conducted, teaching students and teachers how to stay safe on social media.

The Centre for Social Research (CSR) will be leading the digital training workshop for students to understand their digital identity and how they can become responsible digital users.

Instagram’s Guide for Building Healthy Digital Habits has been developed in collaboration with The Jed Foundation (JED) and YLAC (Young Leaders for Active Citizenship). It’s a basic guide to understand the socio-emotional space young people operate in, on any social media platform.

"We will explore the essentials of how to communicate responsibly online, how to identify and respond to threats and harassment, and the tools with which they can empower themselves to stay safe and secure online," as per the CBSE brochure.

 

The training programs will be free of cost for both teachers and students in CBSE-affiliated schools in the first phase from August to November 2020 in virtual mode. The registration for these training programs will start on July 6 and will end on July 20, 2020. Each of the programs will have 10,000 seats each for teachers and students. The teachers' program would commence on August 10 and the students’ program from August 6 onwards.

CBSE and Facebook will provide an online certificate of completion to participants who successfully complete the programme by the School of Innovation from Facebook.
