Introducing AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Design Thinking

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES

Kundan International School Chandigarh proudly announces the introduction of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Design Thinking in the school curriculum which will align  with the demands of next Generation.  Kundan International School Chandigarh is one of the few academic institutions in the Tri city to introduce AI and teach Design Thinking to its students. The initiative taken by Col.(Dr.) Rajesh Jasial, Director and Mrs. Yogesh Jadli, Principal aims to prepare the students for higher education in top global Universities.

AI refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans, mimic their actions and are capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence. AI, an interdisciplinary science with multiple approaches, advancements in machine learning and deep learning, is touching our lives in virtually every sector of the tech industry. 

On the other hand, Design Thinking is a non-linear, iterative process that teams use to understand users, challenge assumptions, redefine problems and create innovative solutions to prototype and test. Involving five phases—Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test—it is most useful to tackle problems that are ill defined or unknown. The new subject will make the young minds adept at problem solving, decision making and inculcate the habit of research.

Hubs of Learning (HUB ID- CH 2833)

Kundan International School feels privileged to be chosen as the lead collaborator school in Hubs of learning programme. In order to ensure the enhancement of quality education and for self-improvement, the cluster schools have been working in unison for about a year for collaborative growth. The members of the cluster schools meet   frequently to chalk out the activities and maintain   record of all those activities which are undertaken jointly. Yogesh Jadli, Principal of the lead collaborator school briefed the member schools about the features of the Hubs of Learning, importance, significance and the nine characteristics of high performance schools as per directions of CBSE. The aim of the cluster schools is to provide quality education, adoption of innovative pedagogies, experimental and active learning, to focus on skills, arts and sports, capacity building for teachers and holistic development of the child through life skills and value based education. The annual hub calendar was chalked out by the cluster schools for resource sharing and working efficiently towards a common goal. The Lead Collaborator School in collaboration with the member schools took up various activities from time to time. The activities regarding PISA were discussed in the meeting where the members of the cluster schools suggested to share the best practices, worksheets and question papers.
