Hybrid Teaching Studio (HTS)
The face of education has changed. We believe this change is permanent and we have been focusing on helping schools adapt by enabling effective teaching of homebound students. Conceptualized, created, and tested, we believe that the proposed methodology, including hardware, will be the standard for teaching going forward. We know you are worried about “how long will any investment in Hybrid Teaching be useful”? Find below why the investment in Hybrid Teaching may remain useful in the long term.
The need for Hybrid Teaching existed for many years. Driven by a desire to include homebound students, not able to take part in normal classroom work, for myriad reasons (way before COVID), the solutions never took off because the supporting technologies – such as PVBX- were too expensive for most schools and earning more money was not a strong enough outcome to get school to invest in such technologies without government funding, curtailed in 2010.
When COVID is over, the playing field would be changed for good. The old need will grow, schools will find ways to profit from servicing homebound students, schools will also find ways to reduce costs by employing homebound teachers, more parents will prefer their kids to study from home, the need for isolation may remain for us for a long time to come, and finally teachers may prefer to teach from home while raising little children.
We believe that schools will never be the same when COVID is declared “over”, and the experiences gained from the COVID lock down will push all concerned to advance the mind set of “remote everything” to become more efficient, cut costs, while being able to deliver sustainable education.
NOTE: HTS is not a magic wand and not an effort to make schools buy equipment they do not need and cannot afford. The HTS enhances what exists only with what is necessary to provide an effective learning environment to remote students.
