2017 / Libraries as platforms for hands on, interest driven learning

Members: 2
Latest Activity: Feb 8

Description

We will dive directly into what it’s all about: Learning through play is an experience and we will bring a hands on learning through play activity: LEGO Art Machines (which is developed by the LEGO Idea Studio at the LEGO Foundation and the Tinkering Studio at Exploratorium, San Francisco). We will invite the participants to play!

Reflection 

After the workshop we will have the participants to reflect on the workshop, so they can connect the experience to their own understanding of learning through play. During the workshop we observe, take pictures and write notes and quotes on big boards - this will be the starting point for our discussion.

Our work in the area 

We will describe our vision of libraries as platforms for hands on, interest driven learning. We will present some of our work which supports learning through play. 

Round up 

We will discuss how libraries can integrate learning through play and try define some of the challenges that may occur.

We will make the participants:

  • experience what learning through play is
  • understand what  interest driven learning is
  • see opportunities to try integrate this in their libraries 

Organizers

Amos Blanton, LEGO Idea Studio Manager, The LEGO Foundation

Christian Hansen, Project Manager, Libraries of Billund
