Building Support For Teachers On A LEGO® Education Foundation


Many would say that teacher professional development is a luxury during this time of crisis for educators.
Esben Stærk, President at LEGO Education believes it is more important than ever. In this episode of EdTech Today, he describes how LEGO Education, in conjunction with Tufts University, developed courses for teachers to be inspired by LEGO Education products no matter what the current learning scenario may be.

Esben Stærk, said: “We are excited to offer a new platform to support teachers’ professional development and equip them with strategies and skills to make STEAM learning playful. When teachers are truly confident in playful hands-on learning, they deliver more motivating, engaging, and joyful learning experiences. Combine confident teachers and students together and the classroom becomes a place of endless possibilities limited only by their imagination and creativity.”
Watch the interview with Esben Stærk and Kevin Hogan from EdTech Today.

Going beyond traditional product training, LEGO Education Professional Development is built on the LEGO Education Competency-Based Framework for Educators and empowers teachers to practice and facilitate critical concepts needed to drive student learning outcomes. The framework includes four core categories: Pedagogy, STEAM Concepts, 21st Century Skills, and Classroom Management.
