Connected promotes scientific, technological, and mathematical literacy so that students can engage in a critical and informed manner with real-life science- and technology- related issues. The articles provide opportunities for authentic, context-based mathematical explorations.
Connected is published in three parts, covering curriculum levels 2, 3, and 4 in years 4–8, and promotes learning in science, technology, and mathematics.
Each book is based around a high-interest theme and contains four to five high-interest, non-fiction articles on recent developments or trends in related scientific or technological fields. As a companion resource to the School Journal, Connected can be used in classroom literacy programmes.
A webinar on Connected was presented as part of the 2012 National Primary Science Week. The webinar showcased the Connected series - the student books and the teacher support materials - and provided a sneak preview of an article in the 2012 Connected Level 4 book Oceans.
