With the NEP 2020, it addresses the need to inculcate new-age technologies such as AI and analytics, which are built on the premise of :
- Logical thinking
- Critical thinking
- Problem-solving skills
“The new policy is progressive and addresses the changing needs of the future workplace. Skills such as logical thinking, critical thinking and problem-solving skills are going to be the most important skills for success in professional life in the coming decade”.
“The focus of the New Education Policy, 2020 is quite clearly on ensuring that students in India get a holistic education with an emphasis on skilling in disruptive technologies like AI.
Skill-based degrees will gain currency while plain vanilla, non-outcome providing B.Sc or B.Com or BA degrees will disappear over a period of time.
The New Educational Policy is going to bring a much-needed transformation in the education system. It is pathbreaking in many ways, with a great deal of focus on the application of knowledge and skills.
“The introduction of digital literacy, coding, and computational thinking from an early age, through contemporary subjects such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analysis, and Machine Learning will set a strong foundation. This will also boost one’s cognitive abilities required to excel in the age of AI economy”.
A thriving artificial intelligence industry requires the creation of a learned and advanced society, failing which the skill substitution through automation may threaten the growth of the economy and the nation.
“The New Education Policy 2020 (NEP) has aptly recognised this dynamic. NEP offers a far-sighted vision and plans to transform the way Indians learn and acquire skills. NEP has very aptly focused on India’s core strengths, such as multilingualism and multidisciplinary learning, to lay the foundations for an intelligent society and a globally-competitive workforce–two essential factors for the growth of a responsible and prosperous AI industry”.
