CBSE to Introduce Skill Subject

An official reported that the Central Board of Secondary Education is planning to introduce artificial intelligence (AI), early childhood care education and yoga as new subjects in the school curriculum from this academic session.

"The CBSE is introducing artificial intelligence as an optional 6th subject at Class IX from the session 2019-2020 onwards. To enhance the multidisciplinary approach in teaching learning and also to sensitise the new generation, it was decided that schools may start AI "inspire module" of 12 hours at Class VIII itself," the senior Board official reported.

Yoga and early childhood education are also being considered as elective subjects at senior secondary level.

"The decision was taken considering the demand of schools supplemented by various reports that projected the huge requirement of yoga professionals and early childhood educators," the official added.

According to the norms, if a student fails in any one of the three elective subjects (science, mathematics and social science), then it will be replaced by the skill subject (offered as a 6th subject). Thus, Class X result shall be computed based on best five subjects.

"The board will provide necessary support and guidance towards training and capacity building of teachers and other aspects for the successful implementation of skill subjects from time to time," the official concluded.
