This case study pictures the challenges and successes described by two Grade 8 teachers as they attempt to use robotic technologies to integrate their mathematics and science curriculum in an interdisciplinary manner. The authors share their observations regarding the difficulties the teachers faced and their perceptions as they used the technology as part of classroom instruction. Their analysis indicates that the technology served as an effective management tool for teachers and a strong motivational tool for students. However, the data also reveal that the teachers struggled to integrate the technology in a manner that supported interdisciplinary instruction, particularly because they lacked time and appropriate curricular materials. Consequently, the authors argue that for robotic technology to be used as a model to support education for sustainable development, specific curriculum, adaptable to local contexts, needs to be readily available.
