oin NCERT’s comprehensive online training on ‘Developing eContent for Teaching and Learning of Mathematics’ from August 21st-25th. Boost your e-teaching skills with live sessions, interactive quizzes, and gain certification

NCERT’s eContent Training for Mathematics Education

The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, in its Section 23.6, underscores the vital role technology will play in reshaping India’s education landscape. The core of this transformation:

  • Integration of tech-driven teaching and learning methods.
  • Creation of an adaptable and flexible eContent tailored to different student needs.
  • Leveraging Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for dynamic and interactive eContent, encompassing simulations, games, tests, and interactive graphs.

Addressing the Complexity of Math Education Digitally

Traditional teaching has its limitations, especially in subjects like Mathematics which demand a profound conceptual understanding. However, the digital sphere provides remedies:

  • Clause 24.4 (d) of NEP 2020: Stresses the creation of digital educational materials.
  • Challenges in Math Education:
    • Math anxiety and varying learning styles.
    • Engagement issues with conventional teaching techniques.
    • Difficulties in effective assessment.
Traditional Challenges Digital Solutions
Engagement Issues Interactive visualizations
Math Anxiety Personalized learning
Assessment Difficulties Instant feedback

One shining example of such a digital solution is GeoGebra. This mathematics software marries algebra, geometry, and calculus, paving the way for:

  • Enhanced visualization and interactive learning.
  • Reinforced understanding of concepts.
  • Integrated subject learning and effective digital assessments.
