Hybrid teaching
Read Time, 1 min.

Distance learning in Swedish primary schools has accelerated the development of effective hybrid teaching. Microsoft’s Jerker Porat visited Knutby school in Uppsala to study how they used Microsoft’s solutions in the absence of a physical school environment.

In the film, Microsoft speaks to students, teachers and guardians about how they have collaborated to create a digital teaching environment that can support students at an individual level. However, the need to digitize education was already evident before the pandemic.

“We introduced Teams in primary schools exactly four years ago and here we can see an example of how well they have succeeded in taking advantage of the opportunity to work using Teams and M365 as teaching aids at Knutby School”, says Linda Wallberg, Development Coordinator for primary schools in Uppsala Municipality.

Interrelated climate changes are seen as another reason to make schools more flexible. The work towards this objective intensified when the pandemic broke out and the municipality developed an educator website to promote distance and remote teaching.

“Many teachers also share their knowledge both on the educator website and in teacher networks. Sharing – and sharing other people’s experiences – is a prerequisite for moving forward”, says Linda Wallberg, who believes that the film about the primary school in Knutby can also inspire other teachers and school leaders.
