What is Lego Education?
What is Lego Education?
-LEGO Education is the division of the LEGO Company that is dedicated to the field of teaching and learning. LEGO Education’s learning concepts includes 4C methodology, lesson plans and kids materials - all this will help your child to develop necessary skills for successful future life. LEGO Education is relevant for all children six months and up.
What is the main difference between LEGO Education’s learning concepts and “ordinary” LEGO products?
LEGO Education’s products have been developed specifically for learning, and the classroom sets contain materials for teachers and students. The teacher’s guides establish a framework for structured class sessions and ensure that the class keeps to the set curriculum. The materials give students a starting point from which they can explore the creative learning process. LEGO Education provides plenty of room for variation in learning. The teacher’s guides and the student materials do not contain rigid solutions – they allow instruction to be adapted to meet the needs of individual students
How do LEGO bricks help children to develop their skills?
-There’s something magical about putting LEGO bricks in children’s hands. It awakens and opens their imagination, develops motor skills and imagination. They’re the perfect way of taking preschoolers through the five key learning areas that are important for early childhood development (Creative Exploration, Social Emotional Development, Understanding the World, Early Math and Science, and Early Language and Literacy)
Lego Education research is supported by Lego Foundation, MIT and University of Cambridge.
What do LEGO Education’s learning concepts give students that other materials cannot?
LEGO Education gives students a unique combination of challenges and practical experiences that are adapted to their particular level. When students are challenged at just the right level, they become involved in a step-by-step development process, in which each step encourages them to continue to the next. This is how children are motivated. When they create meaningful/recognisable “works” with their own hands, they build up experiences that they remember. LEGO Education’s learning concepts give students motivation and lasting experiences – which are the fundamental elements in a good learning environment.
