Objective of AI Curriculum for Class 9
The Class IX AI curriculum has a dual objective of inspiring and acquiring knowledge related to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its practical applications. The curriculum is designed to help students appreciate the world of AI through interactive and engaging learning experiences. The key focus areas of the curriculum are as follows:
- Building AI Readiness: The curriculum employs games, activities, and multi-sensorial learning to help students become familiar with AI concepts and their practical applications. This prepares them to understand and apply AI concepts in real-life scenarios.
- Introduction to Three Domains of AI: The curriculum introduces students to the three domains of AI, such as machine learning, computer vision, and natural language processing, in a developmentally appropriate manner. This allows students to explore different areas of AI and understand their practical applications.
- Developing Understanding of AI: The curriculum emphasizes interactive participation and hands-on activities to allow students to construct their own understanding of AI. Through problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaborative activities, students develop a deep comprehension of AI concepts and their real-world implications.
By incorporating these elements, the Class IX AI curriculum aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to understand, appreciate, and apply AI in various contexts.
