RATO Education is certified LEGO Education partner and distributor of LEGO® Education learning tools for preschool, primary and secundary education in Belgium.
The focus of education and the role of educators is changing. Twenty-first century learning is about providing children opportunities to experiment with their surroundings as a form of problem solving.
LEGO® Education has a wide range of hands-on and digital educational resources that encourage pupils to think creatively, reason systematically and release their potential to shape their own future.
The solutions for teaching and hands-on learning inspire interest from literacy to computing, science, technology, engineering, and maths, and encompass preschool, primary and secondary school. The resources are based on the LEGO® system for playful learning combined with curriculum-relevant material and digital resources. With educational sets, lesson plans, curriculum material, assessment tools and teacher training and support, LEGO® Education can help you meet your curriculum objectives and provide you with the tools you need to make learning inspiring, engaging and effective.
LEGO® Education believes that expanding knowledge and building academic and 21st century skills will create active, collaborative, lifelong learners. Together with teachers, we aim to enable every pupil to succeed in education and be prepared for future life challenges.
The LEGO® Education approach to learning is founded on a “4C” framework through which students are free to experiment and explore as they gain new knowledge. Students are encouraged collaborate as they work through open-ended tasks and extension ideas, facilitated and guided at all times by you, their teacher.
The four phases are:
- Connect: the topic or task is introduced, allowing students to ask clarifying questions and build on their existing knowledge.
- Construct: every task includes a building activity to promote experimentation with collaboration and construct artefacts that can be recalled later.
- Contemplate: students consider what has been learned and share insights with each other.
- Continue: every task ends with a new task that builds on what has just been learned, keeping students motivated and curious.
