LINKS and World ORT Kadima Mada have joined forces to conduct an exciting program for the development of "interdisciplinary thinking in an enriched technology environment"

The " interdisciplinary thinking in and enriched technology environment ", a project being led by Adi Kidron,  a promising Ph.D student  at the University of Haifa, is designed to address the need to develop one of the skills critical in the information society - the ability to interdisciplinary thinking and knowledge integration processes . The project is a shared venture between World Ort "Kakima Mada" and LINKS Center Of Research Excellence  Learning In a NetworKed Society.

The project is based on an instructional model for learning and understanding interdisciplinary learning through technology enhanced communities, which is being developed and researched at LINKS . This model attempts to break common conventions in both its curricular teaching and pedagogical aspects, seeking to change the culture of teaching and learning. At its curricular perspective ,the model focuses on the theme - which is studied through integration of knowledge from several disciplinary points of view . At its pedagogical perspective , the model is based on the integration of enhanced technology-learning communities through a substantial change in the role of teacher from "content expert"  to "interdisciplinary tutor".

As part of the project the model is implemented at  three schools throughout three years during which teachers qualify to design, develop and tutor whole teaching units.
