Union Human Resource and Development Minister Current Affairs - 2020
Union Ministry of Human Resource and Development has prepared a module to introduce study of Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the school level. The announcement for the initiative was made by Union Human Resource and Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishak while addressing Central Board of Secondary Education’s Teachers Awards 2018-19. During the event, 34 teachers were felicitated for their outstanding and innovative contribution in field of teaching.
Internet is a great learning tool but the role of teachers has become more significant as the young and impressionable minds should be guided while accessing internet.
The study of Artificial Intelligence at school level is a big leap in country’s education system as artificial intelligence which was otherwise taught at the college level, is now being introduced from class 8th.
For this purpose HRD Ministry has joined hands with technology leaders like Intel.
Other three initiatives announced by HRD Ministry-
- CBSE’s Calendar of Activity
- Ten manuals for schools, teachers and students
- Vidya Daan: It is a unique initiative in which a repository of content is prepared by teachers by uploading study materials for students of class 6th-10th on an on-line platform called Diksha App.
