Local school goes hybrid

A UNIQUE new way of learning is being introduced at Jubilee Christian College in Atherton, allowing secondary students to conduct their schooling part-time from home and part-time in the classroom.

The “Hybrid Learning” initiative allows students more flexibility in their learning, removing classroom distractions for key subjects whilst still allowing them to socialise and engage with other students and staff in more practical subjects.

Students who want to be involved in this program will be able to choose which subjects they would prefer to study at home and at school, with principal Dr Chris Radcliffe embracing the idea.

“Research has shown that students who work within a hybrid model are at least as effective as conventional education,” he said.

“In fact, they can often be more effective learners as the hybrid model creates an oppor-tunity for flexible design and personalisation of experiences.

“As educators we know that peak learning times differ from student to student. Some learn best in the mornings, some in the evenings, some learn best on the weekend, we also know that many secondary students have part-time jobs”.
