Project Work is a learning experience which aims to provide students with the opportunity to synthesize knowledge from various areas of learning, and critically and creatively apply it to real-life situations.

Participants discovered how they could develop 21st-century competencies in their students with the right project work and what other schools are doing for their project work.

Objectives of this educators experience workshop

  • Get inspiration and innovative ideas for project work
  • Identify how educators can develop students’ 21st-century competencies with LEGO Education WeDo 2.0
  • Find out what other schools are doing for Project Work
  • Hands-on experience

Using LEGO Education WeDo 2.0, educators were tasked to build a prototype to help alleviate the problems of ocean pollution such as helping to remove the amount of plastic or trash found in the ocean. The groups of educators were given a choice to build one of the three mechanisms to form their prototype.

In this session,  they were introduced to block-based programming used in the software and concluded with the groups presenting their prototype and their solution to the dire problem of ocean pollution.

This was a highly engaging hands-on workshop to allow educators to go through the project work from a student’s perspective.

We would like to thank the participants for taking time from their busy schedule to attend this hands-on workshop. We hope that the session was fruitful for you and gave you more innovative ideas for project work.
