The final chapter of this book explicates what realisations have emerged for educators and researchers working to create current connections to guide future directions, enunciating what and how connections can/do contribute to both educational institutions and the broader society. By linking the multi-textured threads of contexts and research methodologies, clearer ways to utilise research findings that are diverse and yet complementary become apparent. An extensive range of practical ‘creating connections’ strategies are pulled together for use by educators and researchers alike who may wish to make links, cross divides, form relationships, build frameworks or generate new knowledge in any teaching and learning environment. The intricacies and insights which are brought to the fore within the vast array of cognitive, cultural, social, emotional and/or physical aspects of understanding, meaning-making, motivating, acting, researching, and evaluating that are explored throughout these pages, constitute a form of creative endeavour and output that together weave a tapestry of meaning that not only informs but in turn creates cognitive connections to further teaching and learning possibilities.
