How hybrid classrooms are at the forefront of futuristic learning
Classrooms have been locked, school hallways have become silent and buses have remained parked on campuses with the rapid closure of educational institutions across the world in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the face of this upheaval, EdTech startups in India began to rise to the challenge – ensuring that young learners had the opportunity to continue and complete their education during the lockdown.
Reports suggest that by 2025, this sector is expected to grow by $ 10 billion at a compound annual growth rate of 39%. With this in mind, the industry must now deliver quality educational experiences that not only overcome the challenges brought on by the pandemic, but also dramatically improve the physical learning ecosystem in the classroom. We believe that this is only possible thanks to hybrid classes.
Are hybrid classes the new face of education?
This new teaching model where face-to-face classroom teaching is combined with online learning offers many advantages. In addition to using technology to personalize learning, these classrooms of the future exploit advanced and innovative teaching methods to capture the attention of the student. Teachers have now adapted to unique teaching methods, such as integrating household resources with next-generation apps to perform activities and lessons. They learned how to create short videos and presentations to make the lessons more engaging and interactive, which improved the overall skills of the teaching staff. And that’s just the beginning.
With a host of benefits, it’s no wonder that Hybrid Classes – Futuristic School Learning – was chosen as the theme for the AWS Toppr webinar, hosted by YourStory. The hour-long session will take place on August 12 at 4:00 p.m. and will host a panel of experts – in technology and education – deliberating on the way forward for education.
The session will begin with an interesting conversation about the evolution of classrooms and the type of challenges created by the pandemic. The panelists will then delve into the teaching techniques that must be adopted to fit into the hybrid classroom model. Many organizations, including Toppr, can attest to the urgent need to train teachers in new teaching methodologies and techniques. The panel will offer their perspective on these topics, including choosing the right tools for improving skills, identifying quality trainers and creating effective training modules for teachers.
The webinar ends with an excerpt on the role of online platforms in the future and the steps that policymakers will take to shape the future of education in the country.
