Experiential Learning by CBSE: Education sector has been gearing up for some new changes and there are certain things that have been lined up. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has been phenomenal in making all the possible efforts to improve the education in the country. Not only this, but also the MHRD has been also exceptional in providing the required help to make this change successful. The new HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal has been helping out the efforts in this sector.
Recently, the Union HRD minister informed the Lower House that funds will be granted to the education sector so that it can be improved further. He also said that funds will be provided to the schools so that the teachers can be encouraged to be the best counsellor. The funds will be granted from the academic session 2019-20. The step is also aimed at providing a boost to the teaching sector so that more numbers of youth can be brought to this profession.
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) wants to implement the learning by doing in all the affiliated schools under its ambit. The steps have been taken up by the board so that it can promote the friendly curriculum for the students. In a letter issued by the board in the past, it said, “Experiential Learning is the theme for the new academic year 2019-20. In simple terms, experiential learning is the process of ‘learning by doing’ and is a crucial input for making learning joyful. Students should learn from what they study and use it. It should not be rote learning for them, which they only learn for exams and then forget.” It is hoped that this new initiative will be effective in making the education more student friendly and the results will be better in terms of quality education.
