Abstract: 

This video looks at what the Environment as an Integrating Context (EIC) model is and shows how, through a 3-year study, improved students knowledge, skills and attitudes. The EIC model focuses on using a school's surrounding and community as a framework for students to construct their own learning and addresses how to most effectively teach on subject matters.
