What is hybrid learning?

Hybrid learning

In this era of rapid technological advancements, there is a need for hybrid learning in schools. Many institutions have already adopted it. So what is hybrid learning? Basically, it is the idea of combining offline and online modes of teaching in the most efficient way to enhance the students’ learning quality and learning experience. The biggest advantage of hybrid learning in schools is that education will not be interrupted because of distance or any external factors. If students can’t be physically present in the classroom, they can use online tools to be virtually present in the classroom and can continue with their learning in an uninterrupted manner.

Benefits of hybrid learning in schools:

  1. Flexibility in choosing the mode of learning: All students are different from one another. Therefore, they have different learning styles. Some are comfortable with the traditional offline mode. On the other hand, there are students comfortable with the virtual online mode. Students can choose whichever mode suits them the best.
  2. Efficient and Effective: If students learn at ease and in comfort, they can better concentrate and develop an interest in their studies. This increased willingness to study will result in good academic performance. If students don’t understand a lecture, they can re-read or replay it as many times as they want. Students’ quality of learning and their ability to acquire knowledge will be enhanced because of hybrid learning in schools.
  3. Access to Education: With hybrid learning in schools, students will have access to education anywhere and anytime. If the student has a mild sickness, like fever or cough and cold, they can still ensure that they doesn’t miss the lectures even if they are not physically present in the school.
  4. Exposure to emerging technologies: With hybrid learning in schools, students will be exposed to modern technology. As they will be using the school learning app, they will get proper guidance on how to use these technologies. This will result in students becoming technically sound. This will benefit the students in the future. The demand for a technically competent workforce is ever increasing.

While there are numerous benefits of adopting a hybrid learning model, school management and teachers must keep the following points in mind:

  1. Teacher Student Relationship: In any kind of teacher-student interaction, an effort to foster positive relationships between teachers and students should be made. Also, school management must take care that students respect their teachers even in online mode.
  2. Student Engagement: In order to enhance student engagement during classes, every teacher should try to create a positive and safe environment for their students. For this, they should interact frequently with their students and not just with the bright ones.
  3. Technology: Nowadays, students are more exposed to technology and devices than their teachers. Schools should try to deliver learning with the latest technologies such as virtual reality (VR), artificial intelligence (AI), etc. This will enhance student engagement by triggering their curiosity and excitement to learn about these cutting-edge technologies.

In conclusion, hybrid learning in schools is the future of the education system all across the globe. To adopt this system of school learning, schools should focus on the development of their school learning app. But schools should take care at all costs that the quality of school learning doesn’t get compromised. Equal efforts should be taken for both offline and online modes of school learning.
