CBSE’s National Annual Sahodaya Conference begins in Amritsar

Around 100 CBSE schools from across the country are taking part in the 20th National Annual Sahodaya Conference, which began in Amritsar on 8th November.

Organized by the Central Board of Education ( CBSE ), the conference is based on the theme ‘Future ready schools – leading the future of learning’. The programme is meant to help teachers and principals understand the need for enabling positive use of technology in schools.

The conference was inaugurated by Rajeev Sethi, chairman of the Asian Heritage Foundation ( New Delhi ), Vineet Joshi, CBSE chairman, Sadhana Parashar, director of academics, research, training and innovation at the CBSE, and Dharamveer Singh, president of Amritsar Sahodaya.

Schools and students should overcome challenges with the help of technology and make classrooms student-dominated, said Dharamveer Singh in his inaugural address.

Vineet Joshi said that teachers and principals should adapt to the evolving technologies of the 21st century which would not only help them tackle obstacles but also make them adept to take on the future. “It is important to vocationalise education so students learn how to apply what they learn in the classroom,” he said.

The conference will include sessions on e-learning technologies, innovations, preparing global learners and educating leaders, empowering teachers through technology and vocationalisation of education.
