These guides have been written by school leaders to support continuous learning for ākonga in times of disruption, through a hybrid learning approach. Defining hybrid learning At its heart hybrid learning offers a way of designing for learning that isn’t determined by thinking about location in the first instance What’s driving the shift to hybrid learning? The global COVID-19 pandemic has caused disruption in almost every part of our society –including education Making learning visible Ensuring that learners (and whānau) are able to access their learning anywhere, anytime Designing Systems that Enable Teacher Collaboration In an environment where the constant is change, colleagues can be placed in situations that have not been their ‘usual’ experience How does communication support ākonga, whānau, and kaiako with hybrid learning?

Keeping learning active Active learners are engaged learners. The question is how do we support and sustain that activity in the hybrid learning environment? Leadership support for teaching staff Six principles for leading hybrid learning Universal Design for Learning, 'Action and Expression' With the affordances of digital technology Prepare for hybrid learning using teacher inquiry The following was an actual inquiry by a group of teachers who were moving from onsite to online and remote learning for ākonga.
