PM Modi Reviews NEP Implementation, Pitches For Hybrid Mode Of Learning


New Delhi: In a high-level meeting to review the implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP) on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi batted for developing a hybrid system of learning comprising both online and offline mode to avoid overexposure of students to technology. According to an official statement, Modi said the new policy is being rolled out in a bid to ensure equity, access, inclusivity and quality.

Advocating the use of India-made toys to develop conceptual skillset in children, PM Modi suggested that the science laboratories in secondary schools should engage with the farmers in their area for soil testing, as per the statement.

Speaking about the new education policy, Modi said that special efforts have been made to trace out-of-school children and bring them back to the mainstream education system. He also lauded the introduction of multiple entry and exit in higher education and said these transformative reforms will lead the progress of the country as it enters the ‘Amrit Kaal’.

Talking about the multi-disciplinarity in higher education, the statement said the PM was informed that the guidelines for multiple entry-exit for flexibility in learning along with the launch of academic bank of credit on digilocker platform will now make it possible for the students to study according to their choice and convenience.

The PM also said the anganwadi centre database should be integrated with the school records and called for the regular health check-ups of children and screening in schools with the help of technology.

Modi also said that work in formulation of the National Curriculum Framework under the guidance of the National Steering Committee is underway.

In a bid to create new possibilities for lifelong learning and involve critical and interdisciplinary thinking in students, the UGC has issued guidelines as per to which the students can pursue two academic programmes simultaneously.

In school education, initiatives such as quality ECCE in ‘Balavatika’, NIPUN Bharat, Vidya Pravesh, examination reforms and innovative pedagogies like toy-based learning are being adopted for better outcomes and holistic development of children, the statement further added.
