On their official Twitter account, CBSE notifies about the collaboration and eventual launch of the ‘Innovation Ambassador’ programme.
Nurturing young school students on problem-solving and critical thinking is very important. New Education Policy has also laid huge emphasis on promoting out-of-the-box thinking amongst students. To achieve this goal, the role of teachers becomes highly significant. The teachers should become mentors and guide these young minds in their pursuit of innovation and entrepreneurship. Thus, it is equally crucial for teachers to have adequate mentoring skills.
In order to strengthen the mentoring capacity of teachers for Nurturing and handholding ideas from students, CBSE in collaboration with the Ministry of Education’s Innovation Cell and AICTE is launching the online ‘Innovation Ambassador Program’. In this program, the teachers shall be trained on the following four modules:
1. Design Thinking & Innovation
2. Idea generation & Ideal hand-holding
3. Intellectual Property Rights
4. Product / Prototype development
These modules will be offered free of cost to all the selected CBSE teachers. Upon successful completion of the training, these trained teachers shall be designated as ‘Innovation Ambassadors’.
Role of the ‘Innovation Ambassadors’:
Through this ‘Innovation Ambassador Program’, CBSE envisages to train 50,000 teachers (i.e. two/ three teachers per school) from all CBSE affiliated schools as ‘Innovation Ambassadors’. Thus, all CBSE affiliated schools should nominate four/five teachers from their school (in order of preference) for this program.
