Learning through play: Engaging students and teachers

  • LEGO Education plays a vital role in the mission to inspire builders of tomorrow, with an ambition to enable all students to succeed by delivering engaging, hands-on, in-classroom experiences rooted in learning through play.
  • This keynote aims to provide insights into how we can ensure engagement from students in classrooms as well as discuss through the key challenges that teachers face.
  • Our solutions are rooted in the learning through play methodology and pedagogy before technology, which allows students to develop a holistic set of skills that are not only cognitively rooted, but also rooted in social, emotional, physical, and creative development. We empower students to find meaning in the world around them and create positive change.
