LEGO EDUCATION

http://education.lego.com/en-us

This site offers lots of resources for teachers, see what is included below:

  • COMPUTER SCIENCE. Programming for real. Intuitive, simple icon-based programming language and tools that encourages solutions design using algorithmic problem solving.
    Example: Define an algorithm to measure and control behaviour and process.
  • SCIENCE.  Learning by doing. Support classroom teaching by using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 to collect real-time data to verify a hypothesis.
    Example: Carry out experiments designed to determine melting points – collect data samples with the temperature sensor and track and plot the results using the intuitive graphing environment.
  • TECHNOLOGY.  Actively engage students. Explore real-life application of technology to make analogies, identify relationships, predict outcome, analyze data and draw conclusions.
    Example: Explore design and functionality by building and programming the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 to carry out controlled actions.
  • ENGINEERING. From idea to working prototype. Engage your students in practical, open-ended engineering challenges and open-ended problem solving.
    Example: Carry out a design process, from brief through testing and analysis to creating functional prototypes that can be easily modified to achieve design goals.
  • MATHEMATICS.  Bringing numbers alive. LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 is an ideal way to explore mathematical problems for real, making abstract concepts tangible and concrete.
    Example: Calculate the wheel circumference of your robot. Then program the robot to move a specific distance using the rotation sensor feedback multiplied by the circumference.

Primary School Teaching Resources

 

The 123HUB is a FREE resource bank and teaching community for primary school teachers. It has been designed to assist teachers in finding good quality online resources. Our aim is to take the effort and guesswork out of finding the best online resources that are available for the primary school curriculum. All of the resources on the 123HUB have been hand picked by teachers.

 

Now over 2400 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our featured theme for October 2019 is Animation!

 

Animation. Using animation in the classroom is certainly an exciting advance in education technology. Animation allows children the opportunity to be really creative in designing their own comic strips, stories, movies and much more. They can use stop-motion, or computer animation to create amazing stories and games, or they could simply use a pencil and paper to create a basic flip-book animation. Whatever method is chosen, animation is a fantastic way to engage children in their learning.

We currently have over 40 super themed websites on offer; they primarily embrace the subjects of Computing, Art & Design and English but could effectively be used in support of other subjects, across the whole curriculum.  Collectively, the resources include advice, tutorials, workshops, examples, software choices and much more besides. They comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively underpin this fascinating and engaging topic.

 

 

 

 

Halloween. As Halloween also falls in October, in addition to our main featured monthly theme above, we also include ten great Halloween resources. The resources include: activities, games, word searches and more, which teachers may find really useful.

 

 

 

 

The featured theme is updated monthly during the academic year. Watch out for our great 'Creative Writing' resources coming in October 2019!

 

 

 


Recently Archived Themes

 

Our exciting new theme for September 2019 was ‘Food Chains and Habitats’. This topic explores how plants and animals get their energy and where they may be located. All living things need food in order to give them the energy required to flourish and a food chain reveals exactly how each living thing gets its food and also illustrates just exactly what might be eating what!

We have 36 super themed websites on offer; they include resources that are suitable for KS1 and KS2 and embrace the subjects of Science and Geography. Collectively, the resources cover:  how food chains work, what they consist of, what is eating what and why, as well as where on the planet animals and plants may be found and how they manage to live there. As usual, the themed resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support this great topic.
