Connections allows students to take a journey tailored specifically to their individual needs within a lesson. A student can hop off the train and continue attempts to master a skill when needed, before catching the connection to the next station. 

Students are required to work with time and calculate how long their individual journey has taken, how long they spent in stations and how long they spent on the train. On a student’s arrival at the final destination students should attempt to complete an arrivals challenge. 

This is easily adaptable within many subjects by using blooms taxonomy. Students have to identify facts to comparing and contrasting events. Examination questions can easily be broken down within the frame work.
