Session 1: The building blocks of learning – Alternative uses of lego in the classroom! (Repeat Session)

 

LEGO Bricks are toys. They are items that students willingly seek out to play with and get excited to receive. That is one of the things that make them so useful to teachers. Lessons taught using LEGO Bricks don’t feel like dull schoolwork. On the contrary, students might feel like they’re getting away with something.

The workshop will take on a participant centered approach drawing upon the experiences, successes and failures of those attending the session. Ideas will be shared among those present as well as be made aware of other tried and tested techniques using the LEGO bricks already available from home. Should the participants not have any LEGO pieces at home there is no need to worry. All participants at the session will go home with the materials that are provided to them during the session. Various areas of classroom management will be targeted during this session

 

 

Session 2: Teaching English to young learners with 6 bricks!

 

Through fun and short activities with sets of LEGO® bricks in six bright colours, children can practice their memory, movement, creativity and more. You can adapt activities and of course make your own activities to match the children’s skills and interests.

  • When children are engaged and challenged in playful ways, children practice skills for learning:
  • Language such as describing in rich detail, giving clear instructions, explaining your reasons, and telling stories, which helps you to communicate with others and express your ideas.
  • Problem solving including to stay focused, and remember a task or a challenge, set goals and make plans, come up with creative ideas, and reflect on what you do and how you do it.
  • Collaboration as in working together in pairs or teams, share turns and the materials you work with, learn from your peers and their ideas, and give each other roles and responsibilities.

Session 3+4: ELT through STEM – Can robots help us learn English.

 

Nowadays, education systems across the globe are incorporating more of a cross-curricular approach to learning and Teaching. One area that has gained momentum is the sphere of STEM education. It is said that 60% of students under the age of 12 will be going into jobs that do not exist today and will be STEM related. A skills-based approach with a major focus on problem solving has been pegged as the way forward. We are all aware that the STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications. STEM develops a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives. STEM isn’t a standalone class—it’s a way to intentionally incorporate different subjects across an existing curriculum including literacy and ELT.
