I liked one of the case studies under the SST Project Peer Review Meeting which focused on utilisation of biosphere reserves and indigenous knowledge systems in science teaching and learning. The idea of using knowledge from our cultural practices and heritage is interesting, particularly when one comes to think about that there are many traditional practices (e.g., in agriculture (such as vermiculture)) that have been documented to be eco-friendly than some of the methods (e.g. the use of highly hazardous pesticides) that have been developed. This supports the idea that we do have a lot around us that can supplement the methods that are used in educating students to become the best, and ultimately to turn around our societies to be the best.
