Hybrid learning

Library management

Overview

Teachers can bridge the gap between online learning and learning physically in school with the right tools in hand.
“Hybrid learning is a delivery system that utilizes the best of online learning tools and resources to shift the instructional model toward student-centered, highly personalized approaches. Hybrid learning makes it easier for teachers to be empowered with technologies that allow personalization.” Hybrid learning is a teaching method where teachers instruct in-person and remote students at the same time. In hybrid learning models, asynchronous teaching methods can be used to supplement synchronous, face-to-face instruction. Hybrid learning comes with its pros, including increased interaction with peers and instructors, greater involvement in a course, more flexible scheduling and an interactive learning environment.

Role of Technology

Hybrid learning is here to stay. It is upto us as education technologists to design learning environments that combine the best of both the in-person learning environment and the online learning space.  Below are some points for consideration that will help make the hybrid learning model a successful one:

Engaging parents in the learning conversation

Online learning resources for parents

In a hybrid learning model, usable and interactive online learning resources for parents will take on an added importance. It may be as simple as a half-termly homework schedule; however, parents will likely benefit from resources that help them help their children with distance learning.

Minimise in-person contact

In a hybrid model, schools will need to consider what is essential to be done in person with parents. Given the work of maintaining in person and distance learning, schools should focus on in person parent interaction on high benefit activities (IEP meetings or sessions to support parents with at home learning).

Challenges of Hybrid Learning

  • It is not possible to simply take the traditional model and try to fit it into the online learning framework.
  • Task of teachers to regularly engage and motivate students
  • Students will need to take on more responsibility for their learning.

  • Online temptations can distract students easily.

  • A typical hybrid course emphasizes volunteering, working with groups online, and taking initiative more than in a traditional face-to-face course.
  • Hybrid learning with respect to distance courses is questioned in terms of social
    presence or the degree of interactive salience between interpersonal relationships.
