Since beginning of the pandemic, the world education industry has taken a ride on the technology wave in order to cater to the needs of children through the past two years. while this mode of learning is on the highway route for a large section of students who are who are, essentially, city based, a large section continue to be deprived and is still lagging behind because of the lack of connectivity in the remote regions of the country. The only solution of the problem is a concerted and effort to establish connectivity in these rural areas as well as inculcate a blended learning process throughout  all education establishments.

In 2022 , this basic problem needs to be mitigated in order to make education more accessible and employable for students.The facets of education have taken an unprecedented turn, globally and that has also helped to identify the short coming of this system in handling the challenges. The hybrid model of education seems the only way out at the moment to continue the education process while keeping the hazards of the pandemic at bay.

From classroom to online learning, the new normal for  education has been changing rapidly in the past two years.we can assume that the new year will continue to embrace blended learning as the best solution to be education system. This will help to mitigate the problem of complete online learning to some  extent. In the hybrid model of learning, students can obtain an  array or real world skills that could continue to benefit their careers in future. These include independent research skills,self learning, proficient communication across modalities and computer literacy.

Blended learning combines modern learning technologies with traditional learning methods. Like any learning process, blended learning also comes with its benefits and drawback that are important to  consider when adopting it. Blended learning is particularly useful to those who are not too comfortable with technology. It also allows room for students to learn at their own pace, besides reducing overhead costs of the institution.

What to expect in 2022:

Shifting from online mode of education,2022 saw new development including adding various information and communication technologies (ICT) to impart pratical teaching and problem solving using the internet. In 2022 ,we can expect to see further innovations and developments in software and technology to make lessons more engaging and to improve the learning experience among students. even teachers are of the opinion that technology is now a classroom necessity and not a luxury. With the rigorous curriculum that all teachers have been forced to follow for the past two years , most of them have become tech-savvy and feel comfortable in using technology to impart learning.

However, blended learning allows the human touch to remain in the education process. Many teachers still get a feeling of satisfaction and achievements through physical classes where they have their students.

Learning that makes us future-ready :

The only flip sides of the pandemic situation is that it has armed the education system for future crises many teachers feel that in future if schools again have to be shut for natural calamities or any other circumstances,the  learning process will not stop.

In the coming months, it is only possible to upgrade the technology and also encourage extensive training of teachers so they can brace the system without any hesitation. However,in the process,it is also important to note that comprised in the process.

While techers  and students focus on learning new technologies and software, quality education should not be compromised. With so much to focus on, students are easily losing concentration on studies and take more interest on technology and internet.
