Why is Hybrid the way to go for schools?

Don’t you feel your kids have been missing their school friends lately?

For a year now, because of the pandemic, the kids have been staying at home for a long time, missing on those fun moments with their friends and teachers. The giggles, the sportsmanship, the healthy competitiveness, and every other thing has taken a backseat as of now and the kids have started craving to go back to the traditional school environment again.

This calls for undivided attention towards your kids now. However, it becomes challenging to find a solution to it without compromising on their health.

Although, one solution that seems to be addressing the concerns now is “Hybrid Learning”.

In hybrid learning, students get to attend schools for 2-3 days, as decided by the school curriculum, they follow the teacher’s instructions, and parents are also kept in the loop and are equally involved in the child’s growth. What sets this model apart from the past is the fact that, in hybrid learning, schools will be emphasizing more on personalized learning and the curriculum will be planned that way, thereby catering to student’s interests, unique needs, learning styles, and much more.

Mass learning is now very much a thing of the past and with hybrid learning, you can take a step towards learning that can give a well-balanced social and academic upbringing to your child.

Outdoor Lessons

For a year, experiencing nature’s wonders or man-created innovations by physically witnessing it has been put to a halt. However, if hybrid learning is implemented, students in smaller groups can get to see these which could help them in broadening their perspectives.

Don’t you think your kids can get a fresher viewpoint if they can discuss things face-to-face with their peers of the same age groups?

Personalized Learnings

We have witnessed and whole-heartedly embraced so many educational reforms since the outburst of the pandemic.

Furthermore, this phase has taught us to devise our learning ways through data-driven actionable insights that clearly defines the student’s interests.

Now is the time to take things forward and make both ends meet, i.e interests-based learning in a traditional classroom setup.

Sports

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,
All play and no work makes Jack a mere toy.

Well, in 2020, the kids could not participate in sports activities and followed a daily, monotonous and tedious routine. However, if schools start following the hybrid learning models, the students can go to the playgrounds again and be mentally and physically tough.

Interpersonal Growth

Don’t you feel a person can have better communication skills and be more confident if he gets a larger physical audience to interact with?

Indeed, most of us have eradicated our fears because of the opportunities that we got at schools which built our confidence. Though we have switched online, online platforms do not seem to be offering the same benefits since a person does not need to make eye contact while dealing with virtual audiences. It’s just a screen in front of him.

However, in the case of Hybrid Learning, the students get a chance to overcome their fear by presenting themselves in front of larger groups.

Moreover, who would have thought that attending 2-3 days in school with a 30-40 % headcount could ever be that fruitful!

Connectivity Problems

 With more than 60 percent of India’s population having connectivity issues, it would not be wrong to say that the learning efficiency of most of the students has decreased since the time we have switched to online education.

At times, the student’s queries remain unaddressed because of the lack of time or low-speed internet. However, if schools switch to Hybrid models, students’ doubts would not go unresolved and teachers can also get more time to spend with their students.

So, attending schools 2-3 days a week doesn’t appear to be a bad idea, Afterall.

Classroom. live is one such platform that has always endeavored to help out schools to bring out the best in their students. There was a time when virtual education was the need of the hour then you gradually shifted to blended learning but now the present times call for an upgraded version and hence we need to gear up for the hybrid learning approach.
