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 approaching 2600 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our featured theme for April 2020 is 'Learning and Living at Home'!

 

Due to the Coronavirus school closures, we decided to postpone our ‘Railways’ theme that was planned for April and replace it with our ‘Learning and Living at Home’ theme. We have initially added 45 great resources to the theme that we hope that will prove useful to teachers, parents and children during these challenging times.

The theme contains the following resources:

  • Free Learning Resource Packs
  • PE and Mindfulness Resources
  • Art and Craft Activities
  • Cooking Activities and Recopies
  • Home Learning Advice and Tips
  • Free Stories and Applications
  • Non-Curricular Entertainment
  • Free Language Learning Resources
  • And Much More…

We plan to add to these resources during the crisis and if any teachers or parents out there can recommend any quality sites that we can add to the theme and share with others, please let us know at: hub@123ict.co.uk

 

 

The featured theme is normally updated monthly during the academic year.

Watch out for our super 'Railways' resources coming in May 2020!

March 2020

Our super featured theme for March 2020 was Languages. Learning a second language is not only a requirement for KS2 children - it is an important skill that most children will enjoy learning and will undoubtedly prove useful to them in later life. Our fantastic resources cover the following primary school languages:

  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Mandarin
  • Spanish

We have 75 great themed resources that will hopefully help teachers and students in their understanding of languages. The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, examples, communication, research, hands-on activities, games, illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully support this informative and enjoyable topic.
