The objective of this study was to analyze the relevance of implementing a hybrid model in education at the high school level in the Chemistry class, through the incorporation of <span style="color: black;">Information and Communication Technologies </span>as educational tools. According to the results, the implementation of a b-learning model is an alternative strategy for the teaching-learning of Chemistry and, at the same time, makes it possible to reduce the health risk that situations such as contagion by COVID-19 or other potentially communicable diseases, since this model allows students to take classes virtually, and simultaneously in person, following contingency measures.</span></p> Lucero Canto Guerrero Julio Cesar Rubio Rodriguez Marco Antonio Carrillo Pacheco ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-01-04 2023-01-04 6 1 p1 p1 10.30560/ier.v6n1p1
