As the summer comes to a close and students are preparing for the new school year, classrooms won’t look the same as they did pre-pandemic. The trend of online classes or hybrid learning is probably here to stay. So how are tech companies revolutionizing the classroom? Here’s what they’re doing:
What is hybrid learning?
For a large portion of 2020 and into 2021, primary schools to universities alike had to shift teaching methods and go digital. As some social distancing mandates were lessened, fully online learning expanded and found a middle ground of partially online and partially in person.
How is it affecting students and professionals?
There are different variations of the hybrid learning model like having separate days for in-person participation, and other days for online learning. The hybrid model gives students and teachers more flexibility in where they choose to study and teach, but the issue always comes down to available technology to make it work efficiently.
The Sharp solution
Earlier this year, Sharp transformed classrooms at Denmark Technical College in South Carolina to create the ultimate hybrid learning space for the upcoming fall semester. They provided interactive display boards for the teachers at the front of the class and a fully optimized video and sound bar at the back of the class.
With this set up, remote students are able to virtually attend class and still hear the professor (and other students) up to 30 feet away. While testing the display, sound, and streaming combination, it was determined to be such a success that faculty decided to implement the same strategy for their administrative meetings.
