Hybrid Learning is a model in which traditional learning methods are combined with education technology to create a better learning opportunity for the student. This approach has recently become popular in the education space, especially in primary and secondary schools.
A hybrid-learning model needs a virtual/in-person classroom setting where teachers can conduct lectures and tutor students in person, but also requires digital equipment such as a computer to enable the student to access educational software.
However, just having the infrastructure is not enough to successfully implement a hybrid-learning model. There are strategies that schools and coaching institutes must employ in order to make sure that students are benefitting from this approach.
Keep Students Active in Class
Instead of dedicating the entire class to a lecture, professors could include activities where students could interact with each other or actually solve questions, both of which keep students active and engaged in class. This will help students make the most of class sessions instead of just listening to the teacher speak for the entirety of the period. It can also be helpful to use class time to get students to work in groups, learning from and discussing material with their peers.
Create measurable and achievable goals for students that can be tracked via the educational software. This will help educators get a much better idea of student progress and will also empower the student to take charge of their performance instead of relying completely on teachers.
With the use of AI-powered software, this is perhaps the greatest tool available to teachers. They can use the technology to access detailed reports for each student in their batch, including their strengths and weaknesses, and customize learning modules in a way that benefits students the most by tailoring practice problems and revision material in a way that addresses the student’s unique needs.
