The National Education Policy 2020 envisions a transformational shift in education. The goal is to nurture in our students creativity, out-of-box thinking, conceptual understanding and learning how to learn. In an effort towards this objective, CBSE and IIT Gandhinagar are
collaborating to bring forth the Eklavya Series. The focus of the series will be to clarify NEP and showcase how to effectively implement NEP 2020 across the schools.
Eklavya is an interactive online educational program that will contain:
1. Numerous hands-on activities, projects, models which help in conceptual
understanding of various topics.
2. Thought provoking questions, assignments which promote out-of-box
creative thinking (Why Neeraj Chopra threw javelin at 36 degree).
3. Inspiring DIY(do it yourself) project videos using local material which relate
the curriculum to life.
The content will be of varying levels and will cover topics in Science and Mathematics Curriculum of classes VI-XII. Therefore, students from these grades should avail this opportunity to register and participate for conceptual clarity and joyful learning. All Principals are requested to avail this opportunity to fulfil the requisite number of teacher professional development hours for their teachers by asking teachers to enrol for this course. For the teachers, successful completion of the course with submission of homework will be considered equivalent to 30 hours of Teachers Training / Capacity Building Program.
This series will help students and teachers by equipping them with scientific
temper and key competencies. The details are:
