Teachers of the future must be prepared to be data collectors, as well as analysts, planners, collaborators, curriculum experts, synthesizers, problem-solvers and researchers.

Giving students a sustainable and high-quality education in the future will be made possible by a mix of teachers' involvement and AI.

The NEP emphasizes experiential learning and art-integrated education.
Academic institutions must develop smart classrooms, in a phased manner enriching with online resources and collaborations.
