NITI Aayog’s initiative Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), which promotes innovative thinking among students, will be integrated into the CBSE school curriculum. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT), which were independent topics earlier, will now be synchronized in the specific chapters of each subject.
Under the project, almost 59 schools having Atal Tinkering Lab (ATL) at their campuses are selected. Manuals are provided in the school to help teachers develop lesson plans by blending concepts of AI and IoT throughout subjects. The students will also be able to get hands-on experience at labs.
At least four chapters for each subject and projects that students will carry out in the tinkering lab are mapped with AI and IoT activities. It will provide practical knowledge which will be gained through multiple disciplines taught to the students.

The heads and the principals will work as ‘innovation leaders’ in their own schools. Apart from monitoring the effective implementation of the curriculum, the leaders will have to ensure that the optimum use of available resources at ATLs for promoting the use of AI-IOT is recorded, leading to increased participation of students at tinkering labs.
Integrating AI in subjects such as Maths, Hindi, Science, and Social Science will be a game changer. Starting from foundation classes, teachers are successfully using AR and VR tools/apps in their lesson plans for smooth learning integration among our students. Also, with an integrated approach, numerous online AI activities, including face, object, and color detection, are conducted for students in ATLs.
AI and IoT technologies will smoothly convert verbal speech to sign language and vice versa. This will boost learning outcomes for students with disabilities as teachers can now use sensor-connected gloves to provide educational assistance and help students to carry out lab activities.
