Social Themed App Inspiring Children to Create and Share
LEGO Life is an app-based social network that allows LEGO fans, typically children, to share their LEGO creations in a community in which the children are anonymous. LEGO has created a new language for children to communicate instantly, and a team of trained moderators oversees all images and text comments to ensure that children remain safe while learning how to be responsible on social networks. Children can use LEGO emojis to communicate with one another or to comment on their LEGO creations in LEGO Life. The app is available at no charge for iOS, Android, and Amazon devices.
Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in May.
A project of Deeper Learning, the Share Your Learning campaign highlights the value of having students present their work to authentic audiences. In sharing their stories of learning, students reflect on their growth and engage in real dialogue with others about their accomplishments and their futures. To get started, teachers can sign up to join a community of educators encouraging students to produce meaningful work for an authentic audience.
