Created by Simon Lewis, ISEB Geography setter and team leader, LinkIt! is a set of flashcards designed to help children identify all important links between their subjects. Tested in classrooms over the past year, LinkIt has been a popular and meaningful classroom resource.
As well as bringing subjects to life and generating enthusiasm in class, LinkIt helps children see the connections between their subjects rather than viewing their education as independent 'pieces'.
By recognising links, pupils can start to understand how different subjects can impact on each other. They also gain an appreciation of how each of their subjects can impact on their view of the 'real world' and create a more holistic educational experience rather than a 'what's the point of learning that?' attitude.
