Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has released the roadmap for the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) for the academic year 2020-21. NCERT has been mandated to complete the curriculum design and submit by October 2020. According to the New Curriculum Framework (NCF) for school education, NCERT will be designing the textbooks.
Objectives of the roadmap by MHRD for best learning outcomes:
- Implementation of infographics/posters/presentations for class I to V up to October 2020 and for class VI to XII
- Designing of online teacher training courses for classes I to V which will be offered in phases by December 2020, and for class VI to XII by June 2021
- Development of educational resources for classes VI to XII by June 2021
- Creation of ten questions on two levels of proficiency of each subject for all the classes
- Creation of supplementary study materials by NCERT for those learners who have no or limited digital access by June 2021
As per information revealed by the MHRD, the initiative to work on the NCF is already underway and would accordingly alter the school textbooks based on the new syllabus.
Students will be provided additional reading resources to ‘demystify’ areas that apparently appear difficult to grasp.
The NCERT roadmap has been curated keeping in consideration the concept of an ‘Atma-Nirbhar’ Bharat and nailing a learning outcome centric approach.
