CBSE decides to include Artificial Intelligence (AI) as an optional skill subject in classes VIII, IX and X from the next academic session. AI apart, CBSE also plans to introduce Python language in the Class XII Computer Science examinations from the academic year 2019.
Schools are waking up to the fact that students need to be future-ready where AI is the reality, and are making efforts to use this technology to fill the gaps in teaching and learning.
Technology has made things easier by introducing faster channels of communication between students and teachers. In our school, we no longer have to only rely on hard paper copies for our homework or test, and in that sense, AI integrated technology is a big help. Our Grade X examinations are now e-assessments, hence it requires students and teachers to be comfortable with the use of technology,” adds Seervai. Mount Litera School recently organised a workshop with machine learning expert Jehan Shams where students were told about the complex world of AI and its ethical implications.
