The world around us is evolving faster than ever before; today’s teachers face tough challenges to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed for the future. Problem solving, critical thinking and other 21st Century skills are critical for students to be prepared for the future.
It is in this regard that LEGO Education Aids teachers and students has provided hands-on tools that allows students to engage and learn.
Managing Director of Arc Lights Limited, Mr. Tayo Obasanya, who has been partnering with LEGO Education said that, “if you make the education system engaging enough, you can make it very interesting for students and they will learn in a unique way.”
Obasanya who was exhibiting the LEGO Education Robotics at the just-concluded 5th Education Ministers Conference of the African Union (COMEDAFU) noted that LEGO Education does hands-on activities right.
He further described LEGO Education as really an extension of the classroom, helping people to be successful and has a unique approach when it comes to pupil/student learning in the classroom as it gives students the opportunity to solve problems they have not encountered before and to come up with the solution. Its products are also effectively used to promote Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics. Science and technology is a key contributing factor to a nation’s competitive advantage.
