Using LEGO in the Classroom – January 23, 2018
Jan 23 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

This workshop is designed to showcase new and innovative ways of using LEGO as a teaching tool in your classroom. LEGO is a powerful tool to help develop skills and demonstrate understanding beyond our traditional text-heavy learning activities while also overcoming some common challenges in unlocking our students’ creative potential.

Using a variety of interactive activities, participants will learn new strategies for incorporating LEGO into lessons teaching creativity, communication, and problem solving, as well as using these versatile building blocks for gathering formative assessment data. Participants will also learn from the facilitators’ experiences as both learners and teachers using LEGO in the classroom while discussing tips for how to use LEGO as an important classroom resource.

Please register early if you would like to attend as space for this session is limited. The workshop will be held in DB 1014 on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 from 9am-11am.
