New guide presents distance education best practices and recommendations for blended learning
The Center for Excellence and Innovation in Education Policies (FGV CEIPE) at Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (FGV EBAPE), in partnership with the Lemann Foundation and Natura Institute, has produced a guide titled “Learning by Doing: Challenges for Distance Education Practices and Implementation of Blended Learning in the Context of the COVID-19 Pandemic.”
This publication presents a systematized series of distance education best practices and blended learning recommendations, which the authors compiled after listening and speaking to various education managers and specialists. It also seeks to support education authorities in promoting continuity in students’ schooling to help them reach adequate levels of learning. The document brings together practical examples from Brazil and other countries to assist public sector managers.
Considering the numerous challenges arising from the pandemic and with a view to expanding discussions on the potential of blended learning in the Brazilian education system, this technical guide presents knowledge about the incorporation of technologies into education, integrated with other teaching practices and used in both in-present and distance education to aid students’ learning.
“This document is a fundamental contribution to the recovery of post-pandemic learning. It represents the collective efforts of researchers to systematize different measures taken to tackle the pandemic in the area of education, in Brazil and across the world. There were no studies to support all the decisions made in the last two years, during the pandemic, but going forward, this guide provides solid foundations to better inform education managers, teachers and education policymakers,” says Professor Renan Sargiani, one of the authors of the guide.
