Afterschool with LEGO® Education

Thursday, 02 September 2021 00:00

Afterschool and community-based programs require a different mindset than ever before—from the challenge of socially distanced classrooms, to creating engaging learning experiences that build confidence and resilience in person and virtually. 

In a recent EdWeek study, three-quarters of teachers consistently reported a decline in student engagement since the pandemic. It’s clear as we address the global disruption to students’ learning that it’s vital to provide meaningful student engagement.

For over 40 years, LEGO® Education solutions have been purposefully designed to increase student engagement and confidence for all learners. We are happy to offer free resources, including lessons with support for hybrid learning, hygiene guidelines, and best practices for implementation to ensure that hands-on, play-based learning can continue no matter where the instruction takes place.

Contact a solution consultant today to learn more about how LEGO Education can support your afterschool programs.
