Earlier in February 2018, we hosted a group of educators at our Innovative Project Work with LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 | Educators Experience Workshop over at our Innovation Lab by LEGO Education.
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.
