Several changes have occurred in our lives over the last year.
The current pandemic has had an effect on most of our lives in some way.
Humans, on the other hand, have learned to adapt to a new standard.
Adopting a non-traditional learning approach was one of the ways we adapted to our circumstances. Following the declaration of a global pandemic, our primary concern became safety. Staying at home was just as crucial as cultivating the habit of washing our hands on a regular basis. As a result, we had no choice but to find new ways to continue doing what we were doing prior to the pandemic. That’s when blended learning became a viable option.
Blended learning, by definition, is a mixture of learning methods that incorporates different learning modes such as face-to-face and e-learning.
Blended learning is not a novel idea, in case you didn’t know. Many companies have used technology-oriented learning to meet a range of audiences and their learning needs over the last decade. Given the events of 2020, the days of “classroom-only” learning are long gone, and blended learning has exploded in popularity across a wide range of educational institutions.
Kurt Lewin rightly said, “Learning is more effective when it is an active rather than a passive process.” Having said that, take a look at the benefits of blended learning for students and why it works in today’s world –
● Caters to unique learning needs and styles
● Systematic training process
● Tracks progress of students
● Productive communication between educators and students
● Personalized lesson modules based on ability
● Transparent communication and continued peer support
● Convenient access to learning material
● Improved knowledge retention
● Enhances student’s communication skills
All students belonging to different age groups have different learning styles and teaching methods should reflect this. We would be able to enhance teaching, knowledge retention, commitment, accountability, and enjoyment by heavily incorporating technologies. Blended learning is more critical than ever, regardless of the business, from schools to businesses, and from all walks of life.
