It addresses how systems can set up hybrid-learning systems that combine both remote and in-person learning to ensure learning continuity and improve the student experience. It includes an overview of the imperative for a hybrid-learning approach in the face of increased physical distancing requirements in schools, an approach for systems to develop and execute a robust hybrid-learning strategy, and a checklist of actions to take. It also provides case examples from various countries’ response during COVID-19 or other crises, including context, approach, impact and key learnings.
