“Integrated learning is making connecting knowledge and skills across disciplines and real life. It could be multidisciplinary, intradisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary. Imaging studies have shown differences in brain architecture and activity that correspond to a host of capabilities - reading, mathematics, music, athletics, and interpersonal relations” said Lina Ashar, Founder of Kangaroo kids and Billabong High.

She also explained thatall these abilities are seen as aspects of intelligence and build neural connections between the different bits of intelligence wherein content across disciplines (subjects) are woven together in the plans and worksheets.

By integrating knowledge and skills it is ensured every child processes through his/her dominant intelligence to master a concept or skill. It provides an opportunity to also challenge and expose to the other intelligences.
