Hands-on LEGO® learning.
What are the key trends you believe have the power to transform the way we learn?
Preparing children for the future of jobs demands re-focusing concepts of learning and education around “a breadth of skills”.
Developing skills for the future also means understanding ‘holistic child development’ and the critical window of opportunity that the early years represent. We know that these skills can be developed and/or that a child’s potential to develop these skills can be inhibited. Laying the groundwork in developing early competency, particularly in the first 1,000 days of life, positions a child to thrive and develop the optimal skill sets as they grow up during the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The theme of EdTechXEurope 2018 is ‘Eternally Learning’. What does eternal learning mean to you?
Life-long learning has always been at the very core of LEGO Education most heartfelt values. We aim to ignite student engagement in learning by giving them a hands-on experience that encourages learning through physical and digital creation.
Why is it important for all players in the EdTech ecosystem to continuously connect, network and learn from each other?
We play an essential role in the future of our next generation. By sharing knowledge we can make a lasting impact on education and Edtech.
How does your current role allow you to make a difference to education and learning space?
At LEGO® Education we aim to build learning experiences and solutions where hands-on LEGO® learning empowers children to become creative, engaged and lifelong learners.
This ambition is more critical than ever, the world of today and tomorrow is one of challenges but also of tremendous opportunity. New technologies mean we will live, learn and work in ways that do not exist now.
Children need skills and mind sets allowing them to step into this uncertainty, create opportunities for themselves and their communities. This increasingly interconnected and dynamic reality means children will face continuous re-skilling and a need for lifelong learning as they grow. We firmly believe that encouraging children’s drive to learn, their ability to think critically to solve problems and use their creativity/imagination is absolutely essential.
