On his blog, John Spencer presents ideas on organising Hybrid learning so that you can handle it and the students can learn from it.
In his post five models for making the most out of Hybrid learning, he formulates the task as a teacher:’ I had to find a new approach that would maximise the benefits of face-to-face and viral environment. Hybrid learning can be seen as one of the possible formats of Blended Learning. Spencer presents five models of Hybrid Learning. Below, his summary of the five models is given. His blog explains how he has organised his education in the five models.
At the end of his blog, he remarks: ‘Each of these models works well in certain situations and poorly in others. As teachers, we can think strategically about designing learning processes to optimise the benefits of its models. As schools, we can think creatively about when and how to use these models so we avoid some of the pitfalls of the Sparc-based approach to learning, even so, there will be mistakes. Learning is dynamic and complicated, and hybrid learning adds another layer of complexity. However, by being intentional, we can help students thrive in every learning environment.
