In this ever-advancing age of technology and education, it is imperative that institutes and teachers take an approach that incorporates the working process of different technologies while educating the current and future generations. This is one of the core reasons why Cedarwood was established; to provide children with a platform to learn, enhance and implement 21st Century Skills.
And sharing our view to this approach, the education board of CBSE has announced that they will be adding AI (artificial intelligence) as part of their curriculum for children in middle school!
With an aim to gear our education system to be more inclusive and updated, the Central Board of Secondary Education as introduced AI as an elective subject, for students of grades 8, 9 and 10. This was done in order to prep current students with skills that would help them perform well in global economies that are founded on AI, data analytics, and smart technology, to operate on a daily basis.
The syllabus of this course is yet to be drafted, and the government has promised to aid schools with the necessary equipment if needed, providing a much-needed boost to the overall change to the education system. CBSE plans to introduce the subject in the coming academic year.
