In this unit students will construct, implement and evaluate integrated learning experiences through engaging with different forms of knowledge, including science, technology and studies of society and environment. This unit considers the ways in which scientific, technological, social, cultural, historical, environmental, and political meanings are constructed and transmitted within our society and the ways in which these key areas can be integrated and implemented in diverse educational settings and places. Students will continue to examine, critique and design interdisciplinary and integrated curriculum.


Upon successful completion of this unit students should be able to:

  1. show an understanding of the connections between the science, technology and studies of society and environment;
