India will be the first country to implement AI in schools: Pokhriyal at #EducationMinisterGoesLive
Congratulating the teachers for their services in these tough times, he said that many countries have cancelled one entire academic year but Indian teachers continued to work hard
India will be the first country to implement AI from the school level, said Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal while speaking to teachers at an online live interaction — #EducationMinisterGoesLive — on December 22.
"NEP had talked about the inclusion of Artificial Intelligence in the school Education," he said. There are policies which go unnoticed. But the NEP was an exception. It was formed with your suggestions. And now it is being celebrated across the country. "I wanted to discuss the CBSE and state board examinations with you all to ensure that the final decision is in favour of students and teachers. Hence, I invited you to share your suggestions and feedback with me," said Pokhriyal at the live interaction of the #EducationMinisterGoesLive webinar.
Congratulating the teachers for their services in these tough times, he said that many countries have cancelled one entire academic year but Indian teachers continued to work hard and did not allow any candidate to waste their academic year. "Teachers are no less than Corona warriors for training 33 crore students across countries during this tough time," he added.
The Education Minister also said, "Our educationists will keep on researching and trying new things to improve the teaching process. Teachers are the most abled and powerful people as it is easier to become an IAS professional than it is to be a teacher."
