A podcast platform was earlier launched by the board called the ‘CBSE Shiksha Vani’ in order to provide the schools with the authentic and latest information and guidelines regarding the board’s academic and training initiatives, examinations and other important procedures and areas. The board has now asked its schools to develop a podcast for their best practices related to innovations in pedagogy along with experimental and active learning and integration of co-curricular areas in the main subjects and classroom assessment.
In a notification released by the CBSE, the board has stated that the teachers must encourage the contribution of high-quality podcasts at the CBSE Shiksha Vani which can also be considered as a platform for the teachers to share their innovative ways of observing class, ways of self reviewing, record maintaining, taking feedback from students and also record important details.
The CBSE has also specified that the efforts put in will be provided with its due weightage in the CBSE teachers Awards and the teachers may be chosen to be a part of the National Content Creation Team of the board.
The statement has also mentioned that the board will upload the material for the benefit of the students and teachers and also recognize the efforts of the schools and teachers in a suitable manner. Since the weightage will be given in selection criteria for the CBSE Teachers Awards and other recognitions from the board. The notifications also stated that the teachers will be chosen to be a part of the board's National Content Creation Team.
CBSE school teachers have also been asked to convert the available material or practice into an audio format and share the same with the board.
The board is of the opinion that this will address the gap in the capabilities of the teachers and students which is different across the country. with the help of the podcasts, there will be a sharing of ideas that will enlighten the teachers and take their creativity to a higher level which will help them come up with new podcast facilities helping in the teaching and learning process in schools.
