Creative and Critical Thinking Workshop: An introduction to Lego Serious Play 19MN216

An introduction to Lego® Serious Play®

 

Lego® Serious Play® (LSP) is a facilitated methodology created by the Lego Group.

Since 2010 it has been available as an open source community-based model.

Building with LEGO® bricks is a fun and powerful way to engage the brain into thinking with the hands.

This introductory workshop will look at ways to use Lego® to explore hand mind connections and learning. When we use our hands to ‘tinker’ we engage the part of the brain that generates sensory images in our minds. This helps us to work out our thoughts and ideas and develop deeper understanding.

The workshop will include a range of enjoyable and engaging activities to support active thinking, connecting, learning, and sharing using Lego®Serious Play®

The methodology is suitable for use with a wide range of participants including management, teachers and students.

It can for example be used with staff groups / teams to support communication and team building, help to identify strengths and challenges, be part of a needs analysis, help to share ideas, create a vision etc.

It can also be used with students in the classroom across upper Primary, Post-Primary and Further Education and Training levels to support communication, storytelling, problem solving, reflection, idea generation etc.

Miriam O Donoghue is a trained facilitator of LEGO® Serious Play® for Positive Psychology and is an experienced Teacher, Trainer, Facilitator, Support  Service Officer and Manager / Director across a wide range of levels and contexts in education.
