Take advantage of a critical opportunity for tech-driven, future-proof learning spaces.
The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the journey of education around the globe toward technology driven, interactive and hybrid models. While the wheels were already in motion, being forced to adapt to remote learning essentially overnight meant that advancements that could have represented years of progress occurred just as quickly.
Now, in the wake of reopening, K-12 school districts and higher education institutions are turning to a model that likely represents the future of learning beyond COVID-19 – HyFlex. However, they need the technology solutions to make this exciting, future-proof model a reality, and
that likely means taking advantage of a massive influx of funding targeted at helping education recover from one of the most difficult years in recent memory.
- Education practices already trending toward interactive hybrid models have been accelerated.
- Hybrid learning was popular for its simplicity, now HyFlex classrooms represent future of education.
- HyFlex allows remote & in-person students to have the same learning experience.
- Grant & Stimulus funding will finance the technology schools need to adopt HyFlex on a wider scale.
What Is the HyFlex Model?
The HyFlex model isn’t to be confused with hybrid education, which was a popular avenue for educational
institutions in the wake of the pandemic.
Essentially, hybrid learning refers to a model where a class of students is guided through the same pattern
of online and in-person learning as one. If a lecture is presented virtually, all of the students receive that
lecture virtually, and the same goes for in-person activities.
This model was effective in the immediate aftermath of the pandemic, as educators could tightly control
when and where students learned and gathered. It is also relatively easy to set up, as virtual sessions have
largely been conducted via videoconferencing platforms and commonly available online tools.
HyFlex is an evolution of hybrid learning that offers students more agency in their learning path. In a HyFlex
model, students have a choice regarding their method of participation, and they can change from session
to session to fit their individual needs.
