CBSE introduces Coding and Data Science from Current Session 

The central board of secondary education has collaborated with Microsoft to  introduce coding and Data science Curriculum for Academic session 2021-22. The Coding curriculum has been introduced for classes 6 to 8, while Data Science for classes 8 to 12. The coding and data science curriculum are introduced as new skilling subjects. The subjects have been launched in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 and will focus on building critical thinking, computational skills, problem-solving skills, creativity and hands-on exposure to new technologies.

Manoj Ahuja, Chairman of CBSE said, “As we transition to a world that relies increasingly on technology, it is critical that we impart skills that prepare students and educators across the country to succeed in this digital world. The new course curriculum on coding and data science that we have developed in partnership with Microsoft will equip students with future-ready learning skills. This is an important step to enable self-reliance in our students and equip them with skills like problem solving, logical thinking, collaboration and design thinking that are critical for success.” 

According to reports, Microsoft has designed supplementary handbooks in coding and data science, which are based on NCERT patterns and structures. The books also include real-life examples aiming at building exposure to ethics of coding, and to provide exercises and applications using the open source MakeCode platform. Navtez Bal, Executive Director, Public Sector, Microsoft India emphasised on the importance of coding and data science in preparing India’s future workforce for the new world of work.
