Engaging in a Digital Cross-curricular Project

Video Overview

Teacher Michelle Brady at Our Lady of Victories Boys’ National School describes how she uses a mix of digital and physical resources to engage pupils in content in a variety of different ways, exploring content creation tools and working collaboratively in a cross-curricular project space.


Pupils use content creation tools of their choice to showcase their cross curricular learning on History, Geography and Art lessons on Egypt and Ancient Egypt. The pupils undertook a design challenge to design and build their own pyramids of Giza with the criteria that they had to be able to see inside it. This project approach saw the pupils choose the media they were going to use, researching their task through VR, podcasts and online exploration before then designing and building their models and finally, reflecting on the whole learning experience.
