Blended learning is a trend for school life in the post-pandemic world
With the emergence of the covid-19 pandemic, overnight teachers and students had to get used to and reinvent themselves in the way they learn and teach: with online classes and video classes, among other tools, educators found themselves faced with new challenges for which they were little or not prepared.
Although distance learning (EAD) is already a reality for adults who take technical, undergraduate and graduate courses online, for children and young people the modality is still growing, even if it is not new, explains the professor and textbook author Ismael Rocha.
“For a long time, several schools have been practicing blended learning. From the moment they use different teaching and learning platforms, they are working with blended learning. When there is an excursion to visit a museum, a forest area, these visits represent blended learning, which is something that happens in the classroom and outside of it”.
E3 2022 switches to online format
What was not structured, says Rocha, was the constant use of online. “What we didn’t have before the pandemic was the use of virtual tools for the work of hybrid learning, we didn’t have the construction of online. Which was very little used. Some schools already had a platform where students could take exercises, publish a list of things they had done. But the systematic way we are starting to see today and as we will have from now on is a novelty – not hybrid teaching, but the teaching from the use of digital platforms, online teaching”, he adds.
Considered a trend in the field of education for the future, the mix between face-to-face and online teaching. Which provides a mix between the conventional classroom and content produced with the support of technology tools. Will more strongly invade student life around the world. post-pandemic. But the format requires much more change from teachers than from students. Believes Rocha, who is also director of the Institute of Technology and Education (Iteduc), a pioneer organization in training basic education teachers for online teaching.
“It is a paradigm shift, which will lead teachers and students to believe that the digital platform is an extremely useful tool for the teaching-learning process, mainly because the vast majority of young people, since children, use digital tools for the leisure. The relationship with digital for children and young people is not a new relationship, it is already present.”
