Students increasingly need to connect educational experiences to the real world, and as educators we must facilitate that in our classrooms.
This workshop will explore how teachers can use authentic, interdisciplinary units of work to better engage students, and best develop twenty-first century skills such as problem solving skills, self-efficacy, and a passion for learning.  
It will draw on the work by presenters who work in the Science faculty and Technology Faculty at Glendowie College in New Zealand, to create units of work that have bridged two or more learning areas in the junior school.  The results of this work have been highly engaging, both for students and for staff.  The presenters will share their findings about the benefits and challenges of implementing the interdisciplinary teaching programmes, and a reflection of student voice. 



Science Teacher, Glendowie College
I am a science/chemistry teacher in my second year of teaching. I am interested in exploring digital learning platforms to promote self paced learning, facilitating learning across subject areas and using context to make authentic real life connections for students.
