Kojo – 21st CENTURY SKILLS THROUGH CODING ALIGNED WITH NATIONAL EDUCATION POLICY (NEP) 2020

In the new National Education Policy (NEP-2020) in India, coding is mandatory for kids (class 6 onwards). This opens up tremendous opportunities for children to learn 21st century skills – through coding. But in rural India, due to the lack of infrastructure & well-trained teachers, the quality of education and the ability to bring in these new educational ideas remains below par. In addition, in recent times, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a big negative impact on the education of kids in rural India.
