India’s educational landscape may have permanently accepted the mixed learning concept. Parents (89 percent), teachers (85 percent), and students (68 percent; by far the lowest of the three groups) would prefer to continue using online learning as a supplement to traditional learning methods in classrooms even after the Covid-19 pandemic is over, according to HP India’s Future of Learning Study 2022.
The HP Future of Learning Study 2022 included certain locations in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Patna, Guwahati, Indore, Ranchi, and Kochi, as well as tier II and tier III cities. According to the conclusions of the study, more students still use cellphones (53 percent) than PCs (44 percent) or tablets (14 percent) (3 percent ).
However, there is a clear movement toward PCs, with nearly 79 percent of teachers advising students to switch from using phones and tablets in online classes to using personal computers. At the same time, 56 percent of parents polled want their children to use a computer.
Economic factors frequently play a role in the delayed transition from one device platform to another. Second, a smartphone is less expensive to purchase than a PC-like device such as a laptop, desktop, or convertible.
“Teachers believe that online teaching helps them achieve a better work-life balance,” the research states. As many as 92 percent of the teachers polled agreed with this sentiment. It goes on to say that 88 percent of teachers believe that digital technologies aid in the better explanation of concepts in various areas.
Another finding is that children desire to return to school to see their friends and classmates (77 percent of those polled), but an equal amount believe that being physically with teachers makes learning easier. This could also explain why students are less accepting of hybrid learning as a paradigm than instructors and parents.
Learning in online classrooms, which will transition into hybrid models in the future, will aid in a range of conditions, such as periodic unfavourable weather spells, pollution surges, and heat waves in different regions of the country, according to educational institutions and parents. This is something that 94 percent of parents, 90 percent of instructors, and 81 percent of students agree on.
“To improve learning quality, the hybrid learning paradigm combines the advantages of online resources with the in-person interactions of a typical classroom setting.” “The extraordinary change to digital learning has enhanced student-teacher relationships while also assuring everyone’s safety and comfort,” says Ketan Patel, MD, HP India. He feels that the lessons learned thus far will be critical in developing a more efficient and successful hybrid learning paradigm.
The importance of technological tools and training continues to be emphasised. As many as 82 percent of teachers say that more tools to assist with online classrooms would be beneficial, and 49 percent believe that IT support to resolve any technological issues is vital. This should help with a concern voiced by 81 percent of the parents polled: the need for more student-teacher engagement.
