Our Prime Minister once said, “I dream of a digital India where quality education reaches the most inaccessible corners driven by digital learning.” There is no doubt that the NEP Policy 2020 is a holistic attempt to turn his dream into a reality.

The New National Education Policy 2020, released by the Ministry of Education (MoE), strongly emphasises digital and online learning to make education accessible to every child in India. Leveraging the power of modern technology in education, NEP Policy 2020 aims to completely transform the Indian education system and make the country a “Global Knowledge Superpower” by 2030.

NEP Policy 2020 is a holistic attempt where quality education reaches the most inaccessible corners of India.

The New National Education Policy 2020 is the first education policy of the 21st century, which replaces the previous national policy on education that was released in 1986 and revised in 1992 and 1998. Designed to meet the educational needs of 21st-century students, NEP Policy 2020 is based on five traditional foundational pillars, which are:

  • Access
  • Equity
  • Quality
  • Affordability
  • Accountability

Recommendation on digital infrastructure and tools

Content management and learning models

Assessment and Examinations

Training and Incentives for Teachers

The New National Education Policy 2020 encourages all schools and colleges to go digital and make their curriculum flexible, holistic, and multi- disciplinary. Given the emergence of digital technologies and realising the importance of leveraging technology for teaching and learning at all levels of education, NEP Policy 2020 recommends the following key initiatives:

  1. Digital Infrastructure
    The New National Education Policy 2020 acknowledges the need for creating an open, evolvable, and interoperable public digital infrastructure in the education sector. Multiple platforms and point solutions can use this infrastructure to improve India’s device penetration.
  2. Online Teaching Platforms and Tools
    NEP Policy 2020 advocates the extension of existing eLearning platforms to provide teachers with a rich set of assistive tools to monitor their student’s progress. Tools, such as learning management systems, are the need of the hour, as the COVID-19 pandemic has shown.
  3. Virtual Labs
    According to the New National Education Policy 2020, schools should leverage the existing eLearning platforms to create virtual labs so that all students can access practical, hands-on learning experiences. In addition, there is a dire need to provide students and teachers access to online learning through appropriate digital devices, such as tablets with preloaded content.
  4. Content Creation, Digital Repository, and Dissemination
    NEP Policy 2020 recommends schools create a digital repository of content that includes coursework and other play/activity-based learning material. Also, the learners should be able to rate the quality and effectiveness of the content. Schools can use student-appropriate tools like apps and games for fun-based learning.
  5. Blended Models of Learning
    The New National Education Policy 2020 clearly states that schools should not overlook the importance of face-to-face, in-person learning while promoting digital learning and education. Accordingly, different effective blended learning models should be offered for appropriate replication for different subjects.
  6. Online Assessment and Examinations
    NEP Policy 2020 recommends School Boards design and implement assessment frameworks that encompass the creation of competencies, rubrics, portfolios, standardised assessments, and assessment analytics. In addition, online evaluations and exams should focus on building 21st- century skills in students.
  7. Training and Incentives for Teachers
    According to the New National Education Policy 2020, school principals and teachers must undergo rigorous training to become top-notch online content creators. Additionally, the new policy emphasises the teacher’s role in engaging students through online content.
