LEGO Education shows the benefit of ‘purposeful play’

LEGO Education is continuing to push the benefits of learning through play, with a new Rebuild the World campaign video.

The Rebuild the World campaign, which launched last year, is continuing through LEGO Education. The division of the LEGO Group that supplies schools and educators is promoting the benefits of learning through play and ‘purposeful play’, demonstrating how through building and rebuilding, children can learn valuable skills.

In this new animated video, the message is played out through the character of Hannah. The synopsis explains more:

Hannah, like many students enjoys learning through play, and never sees something that is beyond repair. If something breaks, they know they can always rebuild it. This is the kind of self-confidence, perseverance, and resilience that comes when engaging in purposeful play.

The video follows the release of new online resources that are designed to help teachers, parents and children during the difficult time that has impacted education.

LEGO Education President Esben Staerk delivered the keynote address at the Bett 2020 conference, where he explained the thinking behind the learning through play approach.
