Learning a lesson from international teaching styles, the Human Resource Development ministry has decided that CBSE schools abroad will receive a face lift with the introduction of an international syllabus. It has also been decided that the CBSE schools in India will also be free to implement this new international syllabus from 2011.

So what does this mean for students? According to officials the only changes made will be to the syllabus for subjects like languages and social sciences. The syllabus for maths and science subjects will be left untouched. The new syllabus will concentrate more on activity based styles of learning and will modeled along the lines of International Baccalaureate.

This drive has been aimed primary at the CBSE affiliated schools in South East Asian countries where  the feeling is that instead of teaching too much of Indian history, the local history of the country and world history should also be included in the course. The new system will first be implemented for classes I to IX in 2011 and from then on new syllabuses for new classes will be every year. Another reason for bringing about this change was that the HRD ministry felt that students studying in these CBSE affiliated schools were not being able to compete on international levels due to the India-centric nature of the courses they study.

The international syllabus is a good idea and what has been needed for a long time now. The activity based teaching methods will help students retain more than they do with class room instructions. It will also give students more knowledge and build awareness. The syllabus is to be finalized by the mid of April. All said and done this is a welcome change and everyone will wait for it with great anticipation.
