CBSE is all prepared to introduce its students to the growing world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and for this it has approved AI as an optional sixth subject for the students of class 9 from the upcoming academic session. Apart from AI, Early Childhood Care Education, and Yoga have also been added as new subjects in the CBSE curriculum.
Recognizing the growing demand and scope of the AI, CBSE has decided to offer the subject as an optional one to the students from class 9 onwards. Schools can also choose to start the learning module from class 8 if they want to.
The CBSE circular says, "To enhance the multidisciplinary approach in teaching learning and also to sensitize the new generation, it was decided that School may start AI "Inspire module" of 12 hours at Class VIII itself."
Yoga and Early Childhood Care Education will be introduced at Senior Secondary Level from this academic session.
