Hybrid learning: what’s working and what’s next?

An open and collaborative panel with schools, EdTech partners and you; focused on sharing practice and the emergence of potential pathways forward. 

Join us for a frank and open discussion about the opportunities (and the challenges!) for in-school and remote teaching and learning when we’ll explore the evolving education landscape and what’s emerging as successful practice. 

We’ll be exploring 3 themes:

  1. What does high-quality ‘whole’ education look like in a remote and virtual world, for staff, children and the wider community?
  2. What is hybrid learning and should it form an integral part of our education offer into the future? If so why? How? What might the benefits and barriers be?
  3. Schools of the future: How might hybrid learning change our schools, what would a curriculum look like and how could we support children’s’ wellbeing when they are out of school

Benefits of Participation:

  • Reflection - consider the learning from the education system's reaction to a remote learning environment 
  • Collaboration and connection - enquire with others and make connections for ongoing collaboration
  • Strategic thinking - stimulated by education and the EdTech industry, consider and plan your 'hybrid learning' next steps, for Covid-19 and beyond
