The 4C phases of the learning process by LEGO Education WeDo Activity Pack for the classroom – where you are building and programming!
- Connect - “You add to your brain’s knowledge when you connect a new learning experience to those you already have or when an initial learning experience is the seed stimulating the growth of new knowledge.”
- Construct - “Learning is best when hands and minds are engaged. LEGO Education involves learning by making: the construction of models and ideas.”
- Contemplate - “When you contemplate what you have done, you have the opportunity to deepen your understanding. As you reflect, you develop connections between previous knowledge and new experiences.”
- Continue – “Learning is always more enjoyable and creative when it is adequately challenging. Maintaining this challenge and the pleasure of accomplishment naturally inspires the continuation of more advanced work. The Continue phase of each activity includes a challenge to build and program more behavior or complex interaction with the model.”
In the 2009580 pack, there are all kinds of mechanisms to make from a snapping alligator to drumming monkey to an airplane to a kicking soccer player!
