Seymour Papert, a student of Jean Piaget and former professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, coined the phrase Constructionism, meaning "Learning by Making". Constructionism involves two types of construction: constructing physical objects out in the world, and simultaneously constructing knowledge in your head.


Knowledge Transfer:

How do you know if your students are truly learning? When the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method is applied to education and learning, it can create a learning process that is more efficient, results in more memorable learning, is more enjoyable and last but not least engages ALL
students from start to finish.


Students can’t reach their true potential and achieve success if they can’t successfully communicate what they know. The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method helps students to communicate by developing a common language. Regardless of a student’s language abilities, the outcome using the LSP is:
  • Students have learned to listen to, critically evaluate, value, and respectfully respond to other’s ideas
  • Students have learned to express themselves in a way that everyone can understand and values everyone’s perspective
  • Students have a clear understanding of their own and each others job functions, responsibilities and unique potential for contributing to the classroom’s success

Visual Artistry:
Asking individuals or organizations to be creative is often intimidating. Whether it is painting, drawing, sculpting, dancing, acting, or other creative endeavor, a common response is “I don’t know how to…” But everyone can build. With the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method, creativity is unleashed and the results are unique and stunning. Students can work with Lego mosaics, architectural builds, or stop motion animation.

Training is also available for teachers interested in using the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methods in their classrooms regularly. Facilitation with the LEGO® Education® materials is also available.
