Learning objects Invictus Games Sydney 2018 – Stage 3 – Adaptivity and Invictus

TLF ID M024948

This Stage 3 unit explores the idea of ‘adaptivity’ and identity across a number of KLAs. Students will answer the question ‘What is adaptivity?’ and will develop an understanding of how adaptivity serves inclusivity, especially in relation to adaptive sport. Students will explore the history and future of prosthetics. Finally, students are challenged to construct their own prototype prosthetic limbs using classroom equipment in a group STEM activity. This resource is also downloadable as a SCORM file: the downloaded version will only work if you upload it to a webserver, such as Moodle or Canvas.
