In order to maintain social distancing during the reopening of schools, the number of students per classroom should be reduced by approximately 30%. With this, education systems will have to implement an alternative education provision that combines in-person and remote education mediated by technology. As countries start reopening schools, it is expected that hybrid education will be increasingly adopted. This will serve as a channel for the digital transformation of education systems and to promote an education with greater quality, inclusion, and flexibility. In this document, we present a proposal for a hybrid education model along with some policy considerations. This publication belongs to the series Education Policy Brief.
