Web 2.0 Tools into Hybrid Education

Teaching and learning habits have changed through home and online education because of Covid-19. The Covid-19 outbreak and online learning obligations forced many teachers to switch to hybrid education methods. The education systems are also going through a digital transformation phase worldwide. However, recent surveys showed that less than 40% of educators felt ready to use digital technologies in teaching and there is an urgent need for a well-prepared set of training materials for teachers.

Digitizing education comes with its advantages and teachers gain more access to various sources of data and knowledge. This resulted in making education activities more interactive and engaging for students. With Covid-19 outbreak Hybrid Education term was added to our repertoire. Hybrid education combines traditional education and online learning. It emphasizes using the best option for each learning objective. Hybrid classrooms vary according to the specific needs of learners. In today’s world, using digital tools has become crucial. Technological developments affect education significantly. With the improvements of Web 2.0 tools, new educational approaches are formed. Using Web 2.0 tools in education provides a more adequate teaching environment. Letting students be more active in the classroom or increasing the efficiency of distance education are the main benefits of using Web 2.0 tools in education. This project will be carried out by a partnership between organizations from Latvia, Austria, Turkey, Portugal, Czech Republic, and Spain. The main purpose of this project is to enable primary and secondary school teachers to use Web 2.0 tools and increase the quality of hybrid education.

Besides, thousands of teachers and educational administrators in partners’ networks will directly be benefited from this project. This project aims to guide primary and secondary teachers to learn the usage of digital tools for primary and secondary teachers. For this purpose we will develop; – A Curriculum (IO1) that will serve as a route for teachers to understand the steps they need to achieve in order to develop their skills on Web 2 tools. The curriculum provides teachers with the theoretical steps of Web 2.0 tools – Modules and Video Series (IO2) which will be useful for increasing teachers’ skills of Web 2.0 tools – E-learning Platform (IO3) which will be provided with the appropriate equipment and help teachers – Digital Guide Tool (IO4) This project methodology will encourage the teachers for their professional development and follow their own progress by using an OER platform. During the development of the curriculum and modules desk studies and literature reviews, state of art analysis, workshop methods will be followed. Video series and e-learning platform will be developed through the technical support from the project partners. The training program, the pilot scheme, workshops, multiplier events will be the key activities in order to reach target groups, participants, and stakeholders. These activities will also help in the dissemination of the project. Teachers will acquire the competence of finding new educational approaches, methodologies, and materials as a result of our project. As the times like we are going through nowadays, people have to keep on their life with a social distance. As a consequence of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, teachers have to move to hybrid education. In order to achieve success in hybrid education, Web 2 tools are crucial. This project will help teachers to get ready for emergency circumstances. Teachers will benefit Web 2 tools in creating online classes, online quizzes/exams. In the long term, adopting web 2.0 tools in hybrid education practices will help to improve the quality of the education process. This will lead to an improvement in the overall quality of the education system and empower students’ with the critical skills that they need to be more prepared for a more dynamic future.
