With lockdown leading to pupils missing out on school, a teacher in Singapore has built a LEGO phone stand to allow her to teach remotely.
Low Xiaoxuan, a primary school teacher in Singapore, grabbed some LEGO bricks when she needed a solution for holding her phone, Geek Culture reports. She is teaching remotely as a result of measures to reduce the spread of coronavirus but realised she couldn’t deliver the lesson while trying to hold her phone.
The fun solution saw her receive praise from Singapore’s Minister of Education, Ong Ye Kung, who said: “It may not be ideal to teach from home, but teachers are rising to the challenge. Everyday, I am hearing more stories of teachers coming up with new ways to teach remotely, collaborating with each other, and overcoming their unfamiliarity with IT tools.”
There have been some interesting LEGO stories as a result of the lockdown, including a wedding photographer shooting a minifigure ceremony, Anna Kendrick becoming a ‘LEGO nerd’ and the LEGO Group helping out the UK government with a public service announcement.
