The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has invited affiliated schools to send in their videos for its YouTube channel that has more than 700 subscribers and more than 200 selected uploads.
The videos can be short films, role plays, talks, discussions, debates or activities about health and wellness, gender sensitivity, community outreach, life skills, values education, heritage, disaster management, social issues, environmental issues, science and technology, and innovative teaching learning methodologies.
Schools have started sending the videos. Nankana Sahib Public School principal Harmeet Kaur Waraich confirmed here on Tuesday that her team had sent many clips.
