Constructivism. The theory in practice.
Literally building knowledge
You know when your students are engaged or not.
So what if what was once seen as 'only a toy' could be used in another way to visibly construct new knowledge, whilst also surfing off the back of the very best of play-theory?
There is so much more power in a plastic LEGO brick than most realise. Properly harnessed, educational innovators can help learners literally construct, retain and socialise new knowledge whilst engaging the learners mind and body to explore the subject-at-hand in a playful and creative way.
We think the new techniques we have created for LEGO Serious Play in the classroom could be our most important work on the development of the LEGO Serious Play method so far.

#Hacked. For Classrooms.
LEGO Serious Play was invented over 20 years ago in the Swiss 'IMD Business School' by Professors Roos and Victor. It was intended as a method for corporate strategy applications. Picture small groups of seniors executives working in multi-day workshops.
The learning and education is so different, and therefore LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® needed hacking to work with much younger people (including primary or early years learners). As well as adapting to work in shorter, typically one hour sessions.
We have also coined a new term, the "teacher-facilitator". This role needs to pivot between imparting knowledge in the role of a teacher, to then facilitating the learners to (literally) build their own knowledge. We will tach you how to elegantly move between these roles.
