Six new subjects introduced for Chandigarh schools
CHANDIGARH: To promote Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA)-based learning, new subjects were introduced by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for 2019-20 academic session in Chandigarh schools during CBSE chairperson Anita Karwal’s visit here on Monday.

The subjects include artificial intelligence, early childhood care education, yoga, two levels of mathematics for secondary classes, compulsory art education, sports, and outdoor activities. The announcement was made during an orientation programme for the principals and teachers, which was organised by the CBSE in collaboration with the education department, Chandigarh, at Delhi Public School, Sector 40C, here. As many as 302 participants took part in the programme.

PISA is a worldwide study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in member and nonmember nations intended to evaluate educational systems by measuring 15-year-old school pupils’ scholastic performance on mathematics, science, and reading.



Under the memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the ministry of human resource development (MHRD) and OECD, the education department has constituted three committees headed by St Johns’ High School principal Kavita Dass for mathematics, Delhi Public School principal Reema Dewaan for language literacy and DAV Public School, Sector 15, principal Anuja Sharma for science.

In each committee, 13 government school teachers and 11 private school teachers are members, who have studied PISA framework and test items. The teachers will act as master trainers for other teachers across the city. This training policy has been made mandatory to be followed by schools. The teachers have further prepared four manuals, two each for mathematics.

Learning materials from countries such as the USA and Singapore will be adopted to suit the requirement of Indian students
