Discussing and connecting with everyday life

You are here

Students only find meaning in what they learn when they connect it to something that is close to them

 

This process helps students in developing connections between concepts within various disciplines. It can also help them understand the implications of the resulting knowledge in society (e.g. ethical implications) and their relation to modern society’s problems and way of daily living. Students only find meaning in what they learn when they connect it to something that is close to them (their lives, society, technology application etc.) Proving the added value and application of a theoretical piece of knowledge is what gives it value in the eyes of the students and helps them appreciate science and understand why it is important to learn about science.
