KVS Excellence in Education Awards 2011

Education today aims at making children capable of becoming responsible, productive and useful members of society. Knowledge skills and attitudes are built through learning experiences and opportunities created for learners in school. It is in the classroom that learners can analyze and evaluate their experiences, learn to doubt, to question, to investigate and to think independently.

It is widely agreed that assessment influences what is taught and how teaching and learning are delivered. Today, as a part of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation, every school needs to practice and deeply engage itself in the process of systematic recording, analyzing, interpreting and using the data about various aspects of learner growth in order to provide diagnosis and remediation to enhance learning.

In order to put all this into real practice educators need to make conscientious efforts to collaborate, communicate and share available technology tools to make classroom experiences richer and more aligned to learning standards.

In the light of the same, Intel proposes to Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan to organize the KVS Excellence in Education Awards 2011 Contest with an objective to promote collaborative, interdisciplinary approach in learning through projects.

The awards will be given in the following four categories.

  • Excellence in Education – Best Student Project

  • Excellence in Education – Best Teacher Project

  • Excellence in Education – Best Region

Important Points to be considered:

  • There is no limit on the number of entries for the student and teacher category.
