Lego Education

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.
