The world of technology is evolving at an extremely fast pace, so people will have to adapt to it at the same pace and level. A few years ago, when natural turbulence forced government and private institutions to shut down, online learning helped stabilize the sustainable education system.
Growing up in the age of technologies and gadgets, students have become more familiar with learning using technology. By including smartphones, tablets and other gadgets in the learning environment, teachers can interact with students to make them more confident and secure. The online learning model has evolved rapidly and technology has come up with an innovative learning model called hybrid classroom learning, which combines both online and offline lessons for the students simultaneously.
Hybrid learning has fused with different approaches and sources of knowledge, with the result that students are more likely to understand and indulge themselves according to their personal preferences, helping them to quickly learn essential skills to use in the real world. It’s a boon for preschoolers as it helps to learn through fun activities while playing even some of the hybrid platforms now focus on screen-free learning through worksheets and brain development activities. Hybrid education is generally cheaper than mainstream education and requires the use of technological equipment, such as laptops and smartphones. Although this is not a significant barrier for most individuals, as some institutions and universities are now even offering social initiatives that provide the necessary equipment to low-income students. Hybrid learning has different types of learning models, which can be chosen by students and teachers at their own discretion, for example the use of online Labs with digital tools. Students can access course materials using a learning management system or other platform chosen by the teachers and institutions.
In a flipped classroom, students can comfortably learn at home to learn outside the real classroom. In the learning model, students can either attend face-to-face synchronous classroom sessions in a traditional classroom or complete course learning activities online without physically attending class with a multimodal or hybrid-flexible (HyFlex) course design. Text, videos, quizzes and interactive give students more control over their learning and enable them to interact with study materials.
Personal education will remain an important aspect of education for the foreseeable future, but ultimately we need to think about how we can create a more engaging learning environment for students for their academic progress and development. Staying in touch with students to motivate them to stick to given tasks Hybrid learning encourages scientists by knowing that teachers are one step closer to them. With different learning methods and better student involvement, hybrid proves itself to be a personal and impactful way of learning. In the coming days, the demand for new learning methods will steadily increase and give control over place and time learning. The adoption and accessibility of technology in education will become the new norm worldwide in the coming decades.
