BILLUND, DENMARK – September 15, 2014 – Today, LEGO® Education announced the availability of a new resource for Primary classrooms: LEGO Education LearnToLearn, an introductory instructional tool that helps teachers and students achieve curriculum goals within core subject areas. Real-world educators were an integral part of the development process. From brick selection to activity development, including defining the lesson structure, the learning areas to be covered and the classroom management tricks to be incorporated, we worked with current Primary teachers to create a tool that is simple, relevant, cost-effective and extremely usable in today’s classroom.
The solution comes with 28 individual sets containing 72 LEGO bricks packaged in reusable storage bags to be distributed to each student. Also included is a downloadable curriculum pack that contains 15 activities across five learning areas and a variety of teacher support materials.
Each activity in the areas of science, literacy, math, social studies and design and engineering includes specific learning outcomes and provides samples of what is possible when using LEGO Education to teach a variety of core subject areas.
There are three activities included for each learning area covered in the activity pack. The activities are designed to be completed in a 30- to 45-minute timeframe.
Like all classroom solutions from LEGO Education, the LearnToLearn set is based on Constructionism, a school of thought that starts with the conviction that children learn best when they experience things firsthand and within a meaningful context.
“We believe students are more successful through playful learning experiences because students are more engaged and the experiences promote a positive mind-set to learning by building life skills as well as knowledge and in that way better prepare students for their future,” said Jesper Just Jensen, Senior Director Preschool and Primary Marketing, LEGO Education. “From the very first lesson with LearnToLearn, students are motivated and encouraged to stay curious, work together, be creative, and think critically.”
The solution and its curriculum are available in 13 counties, including Brazil (Portuguese), China, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands, the US and the UK.
