HRD Minister releases new alternative 8-week academic calendar for primary classes

In order to continue the teaching process amid Coronavirus crisis, Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank On Thursday released a new alternative academic calendar for primary classes. The calendar, which contains eight-week subject wise teaching-learning directives and is in continuation to the previous calendar released in April, is developed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT).

"The fact that many of us may not have internet facility in the mobile, or may not be able to use different social media tools- such as Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc., the calendar guides teachers to further guide parents and students through SMS on mobile phones or through voice call. Parents are expected to help elementary stage students to implement this calendar," he said.

The calendar caters to the need of all children including Divyang children. It includes links for audiobooks, radio programmes and video programmes.
