They should be preparing students for 21st Century skills through a curriculum which is interdisciplinary, integrated project based, transacted in a mode of experiential learning where learners are allowed to construct their own knowledge in multiple ways. When I look back at my own childhood, I often think of the journey to school which was always on foot, alongwith a team of boys some of who were younger and some older. We were, as boys in that age group often are, naughty, boisterous, curious and the learning that happened in that five kilometer long journey back and forth every day of the school year was more permanent, long lasting, long term and influential than any which could have taken place in any conditioned classroom. The skills of collaboration, team work, adaptability, initiative, decision making through problem solving and critical thinking which were acquired in the hours spent walking were more useful than the notes made in the classroom and often forgotten at the end of an examination. The point I am making is that it is not the passage of time and arrival of 21st Century and therefore the 21st Century skills which is of immediate concern but the journey through school which needs to be valued both from the formal and non-formal perspective of learning. We are all aware of the ICT and other media enabled natives that our own children and grand children are in school environment. Certainly, they have immense information around them and they need skills to sift through this information ocean and learn from the same. Moreover, this information is changing very rapidly! Old themes are being challenged and new discovered. So what is it that a 21st Century school will look like in terms of infrastructure, what should the teachers unlearn and relearn, what should Heads of Institutes be focused on, what should managements be aiming for and finally what kind of learners do schools need to prepare for the next few decades? When we think of learning we also think of various dimensions of growth such as physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual. Irrespective of the infrastructure all schools need to cater to all these dimensions so that they can look at the `learners as a whole person rather than someone who has to be helped in scholastic and co-scholastic areas alone. The moment the management and a school head focuses on the entire gamut of development of learners in a cohesive manner then every space inside and outside of school becomes a platform where multifold learning experiences can be garnered to support learning in all directions. When we transact curriculum in the classroom our primary purpose as educators in the contemporary world is to engage students in addressing real world problems and issues which are 4 21 st Century Learners important to us as humanity living on planet earth. These concerns can be related to depletion of natural resources, sustainable development or even mundane topics such as walking rather than being driven to school. Teachers are also channeling their energies into becoming co-creators of knowledge rather than mere dispensers of information. The classroom today needs to engage, excite, create, collaborate and instill curiosity among learners. This requires flexibility in the teaching materials, teacher time table, classroom appearance, seating arrangements, black and white boards and structure of learning. Obviously this needs to also translate into multiple modes of assessments which should help the teacher to know about which group of students need more help than the others without labeling them or pushing them into narrow pre-determined groups. To achieve all of this is no mean task and I salute teachers who are able to enthuse their learners with the sense of purpose and excitement. When I hear a child say that he loves going to school it ignites within me a respect for the school, management, the Head and all the teachers of that school. I hope the schools with CBSE are open to the various schemes and suggestions that we are suggesting and advising whether it is the Effective School Management Programmes for Heads of Schools or it is conduct of Proficiency Test or the Science Exhibition for students or the Celebration of the 150th Birth of Anniversary of Gurudev Rabindra Nath Tagore through recitation of verses from Gitanjali or enactment of drama penned by him. The Heritage India Quiz remains an important enrichment activity initiated by the Board and must be disseminated widely to ensure maximum participation of student. The CBSE in collaboration with TERI also initiated a Green Olympiad for the first time which is an important area for awareness raising to address the Challenges of 21st Century through School Education. We hope that the schools benefit from the various initiatives of the Board and resolve the need to address the 21st Century Education head on.

Where every citizen needs to play his best to make a note in country wealth. We must at present do our best to form a class who may be go-getters between us and the millions whom we govern, a class of citizens, Indians in blood and color, but groomed intellects in thoughts, in deeds, in opinions and in morals. And nothing more can be thought about other than CCE which can provide an ideal environment in grooming human breed. In due course of time it shall strengthen the intellectual fervour. Teacher stands for (Talented, Educated, Adorable, Charming, Helpful, Encouraging and Responsible) qualities covering every aspect of Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation in a pupil. Good teaching is as much about a passion as it is about reason. Its not about insisting or motivating students to learn, but teaching them how to learn and doing so in a manner that is relevant, meaningful and memorable. CCE helps to care for your imaginative craft, having a passion for it and conveying that to students encouraging their knowledge, innovations, thoughtfulness and materialization of the same in the form of marks statement. For comprehensive evaluation due care should be taken in remembering the principle that good teaching is about listening, questioning, being responsive and remembering that each student is different in each class. It s more about the bridging the gap between the theory and practical aspects of life. This comprehensive evaluation shall keep a teacher in not being fixed with an agenda and being rigid but being rational, flexible, fluid, experimenting, developing a confidence to react and adjust to changing students psychological traits. As an educator, it aggrieves me that CCE has created more chaos rather than being welcomed by schools. The bewilderment it has generated is equivocal amongst school managements, teachers, students, parents, publishers and other agencies working in the field of education. Thus, there are schools demanding intensive CCE training. Students feel that it will mean more assessments for them on an ongoing basis. Teachers feel that their work has increased exhaustively with assessments having additional documentation procedures. However, what is visible through all these efforts is the lack of understanding of the framework and ideology behind implementing CCE. The publishers think adding more exercise tables will highlight CCE based study material more for sales. Whereas its actually more about that thoughtful evaluation in behavioural sciences. The system facilitates a teacher to justify students' performance assessment through overall activities & not only with a pen paper test. For the teachers who stand confused in making columns for this assessment are advised to inculcate deep thought in themselves for figuring out student activities in purview of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation. Thanking You! Yours Sincerely, Sr. Tejveer Singh PGT-English V.K.S.Public School, Delhi Road, Moradabad (U.P) 8 21 st Century Learners Respected Sir, It was a delightful experience to go through the very comprehensive 11 handouts developed by the Board for the verification of Evidence of Assessments given to us today. I would like to take the liberty of complimenting you and your team in preparing such well thought out and detailed guidelines for verification of Evidence of Assessments collected from the schools with regard to the assessments done by them of the students of class X. The effort and energy put in by the team is well spent. We have made sincere effort to plan our formative assessment and various co-scholastic assessment as per the guidelines mentioned in the Teacher's Manual IX & X. We have also used the Manual (for class VI-VIII) as a reference point for the planning of various tools and techniques. All our teachers have an access to the various Formative Assessment Manuals (which are beautifully composed by CBSE) and the teachers are very transparent and authentic in their various assessments. We have departmental sessions to comprehend the implication of each technique & tool that can be used for Formative Assessment of the scholastic subjects and continuous assessment of the various co-scholastic subjects. Each technique is cautiously considered so that the most appropriate tool can be used to evaluate it. The three main tools that we are using are checklist (criteria), rating scale and standardized directives. We pursue the following methodology for preparing our CCE planners: If the technique is objective in nature, we choose a checklist. If the technique has multiple assessments, such as note book evaluation & practical, then we select a rating scale. If the technique is subjective in nature, we use standardized directives. In this tool each check point is rated as per the required frequency. Thus we are able to validate even a 0.5 mark that we assign or deny to the student. All these criteria of assessments are also shared with the students & parents well in advance. Always in your support for CCE. Regards Himani Jain CCE Coordinator, St. Columba's School, Delhi Respected Sir, Since the introduction of Physical Education as the (optional) additional subject for classes XI & XII, in our school, the students have become more agile & vigilant. This subject has helped students to work more effectively & participate in all the activities by putting in their heart & mind. This has also helped to make the school environment more lively.
