Blended Learning at Schools?

Dian Maheia

So schools are going to have to get innovative with their learning continuity plans.  C.E.O. in the Ministry of Education, Dian Maheia speaks of blended learning as a possible new normal.


Dian Maheia, C.E.O., Ministry of Education

“If you want to bring back all your students, you have to find a way to stagger your schedules, shift your days and schools really are so creative. What we know is that schools already have learning continuity plans; they built them last year and they’ve been revising them and reviewing them and learning continuity plans are specific to the schools themselves. So my school knows what will work for us; your school knows what will work for you. We have to be prepared to shift our plans and be prepared that the reality for schools moving forward may well be a blended reality; it may be a hybrid reality. And so really, part of the benefit of beginning now in this way is that the schools are going to begin to test their procedures because they have wonderful plans. They have all the procedures set in place; they know in theory and on paper how they think this will work and how it should work and how it could work. But now in bringing the groups in, in increments and in phases, they are going to be able to evaluate and see.”


C.E.O. Maheia says that schools are advised to recognise the economic realities of parents and not make mandatory specific shoes, books and uniforms.
