BILLUND, Denmark--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LEGO® Education is proud to announce the first cohort of U.S. LEGO Education Master Educators, a new community of early learning through high school educators, and that the program will soon open to educators around the world. Educators across the U.S. applied to join the voluntary ambassador program and the new members represent local school districts from across the country. Master Educators use LEGO Education solutions in their classrooms and embody the LEGO Education mission of enabling success for all students through hands-on learning experiences.
“At LEGO Education, we’re committed to providing hands-on learning experiences that help build students’ confidence and skill sets needed for the future,” said Silver McDonald, Head of LEGO Education North America. “We’re thrilled to bring together educators who exemplify this commitment every day in their classrooms with the launch of the LEGO Education Master Educator program. We hope it inspires educators to share their best practices and to continue fostering important 21st century skills among today’s students.”
The Master Educator program fosters a sense of community among like-minded educators, serving to share knowledge and ideas for strengthening student success through hands-on learning. LEGO Education Master Educators will be invited to provide valuable feedback to LEGO Education solutions and programs to help evolve hands-on learning in schools.
