LEGO Education WeDo is a fantastic, easy-to-use Cross-Curricular tool that enables students to learn, construct and then bring their models to life using intuitive drag-and-drop software.
Lego WeDo can complement other subject areas and can be used for language building, literacy, numeracy and various engineering, design and technology-based subjects. At the same time students will develop and improve different communication, collaboration and team-building skills.
The Children have been learning to understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions. They are learning to create and debug simple programs
Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs
Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output.
How pupils benefit

Brainstorming to find creative alternative solutions
Learn to communicate, share ideas and work together
Programming, using software, designing and creating a working model
Work with simple machines, gears, levers, pulleys, transmission of motion
Measuring time and distance, adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, estimating, randomness, using variables
Use feedback to adjust a programming system.
