Title: How is Blended Learning Helping in COVID Times?

How is Blended Learning Helping in COVID Times?
As the world hunkers down to curb the spread of
the novel coronavirus, blended learning seems to
be emerging as the most sustainable model in the
current situation. As our pandemic-preparedness
model at GIIS, we have gradually transitioned
students back to the physical classroom. At the
same time, we are completely prepared to go back
to the blended learning model in case there is a
turn in the situation and the pandemic worsens
again. What Does Blended Learning Look Like at
GIIS? Our current framework enables students to
participate in both virtual and physical
lessons. As we implement blended learning,
students can alternate between virtual and
on-campus learning on a weekly basis.
At school, we've stepped up safety protocols,
which include installing acrylic shields in
classrooms, group thermal scanners and
distributing masks and face shields to every
When students are participating in virtual
learning, they will access course materials and
submit assignments through our online portal,
just as they did during Singapore's circuit
breaker period. Children will be able to connect
with their teachers remotely, too. Watch this
video to get a glimpse of the hard work that our
teachers put in to make virtual lessons
successful Benefits of Blended Learning Blended
learning is fortunately an innovative model that
is highly beneficial for students and teachers
alike. Here are some of the advantages blended
learning provides your child.
Sustainable model It may be several months or
longer than the effects of this pandemic will
wade off, and the blended approach is more
sustainable in the long term than virtual
learning alone because it more closely simulates
the typical learning environment.
Splitting instructional time between e-learning
and the physical classroom allows us to comply
with public health guidelines whilst providing
students opportunities to interact with teachers
and peers in-person. blended learning
accommodates a variety of learning styles
With blended learning, students not only engage
with teachers and peers face-to-face but also
through digital means such as email and message
boards. Students who are less apt to speak out
when they have a question or don't understand
something can instead post their query on a
message board or via chat.
During face to face lessons, students can engage
with teachers and classmates in ways that
complement remote learning. Since teachers have
fewer students in a class, they can spend more
time one-on-one with them if needed, yet they
have the flexibility to respond to the concerns
of students who are learning at home,
too. Helpful for Hands-On Tasks and Higher-Grade
Levels A partial return to the physical classroom
enables students to complete tasks that may be
nearly impossible to accomplish virtually, such
as laboratory work. Dividing time between
in-person learning and e-learning can be
especially helpful for our higher- grade
students, who are studying subjects at an
advanced level and may need more time to consult
with their teachers.
To sum it up, blended learning lends itself well
to continue lessons in the midst of a pandemic
and we are completely ready to offer an efficient
blended learning environment to our
students. At GIIS, we're committed to providing
a safe learning environment that maximises
student engagement and achievement. Please

blended learning approach. We look forward to
hearing from you.
