Art-Integrated Exemplars Competition for Teachers of CBSE Affiliated Schools

New Delhi : Art-Integrated Exemplars Competition for Teachers of CBSE Affiliated Schools.

The National Policy of Education 2020 states: Art-Integration is a cross-curricular pedagogical approach that utilizes various aspects and forms of art and culture as the basis for experiencing the learning of concepts across subjects. As a part of the thrust on experiential learning, art-integrated education will be embedded in classroom transactions not only for creating joyful classrooms, but also for imbibing the Indian ethos through integration of Indian art and culture in the teaching and learning process at every level. This art-integrated approach will strengthen the linkages between education and culture. (Clause 4.7, NPE,2020). 2. As a pedagogical initiative, CBSE has introduced Art- Integrated Learning in all its affiliated schools vide Circular No. Acad-12/2019 dated 8th March 2019. The Board has also issued Guidelines on Art-Integrated Learning vide Circular No. Acad-22/2019 dated 18.04.2019 with an aim to facilitate teachers and principals for implementing Art Integrated Learning as a pedagogical tool for experiential and joyful learning in classroom situation as well as building a joyful learning environment in the school. The Art-Integration guidelines of the Board enlists various suggestive activities, projects, assignments and lesson plans and are available at – http://cbseacademic.nic.in/web_material/Manuals/Art_Integration.pdf 3. You may also recall that Competency Based Education (CBE) is the theme for the year 2020-21 and CBE can be implemented only through innovative and joyful experiential pedagogies such as Art-Integrated and Sport-Integrated Learning, Storytelling, etc. as these pedagogies promote reflection, critical thinking, creativity, initiation, self-direction and other 21st Century Skills and empower students with the competencies to understand, analyse, evaluate, interpret and innovate various real life situations. 4.
