LEGO Implements Educational Programs



Enjoyable Learning Innovations: How LEGO Improves In-Class Education?

For our generation, colorful LEGO is one of the brightest childhood experiences that combine playing and learning. Indeed, this entertaining game provides a great field for creativity, since it encourages building objects from the ground up and provides youngsters with new visions of reality. As a result, they learn new way of thinking while having fun and here and even this can help you even with writing essays. The impact of such games is long-standing, while creative children become creative adults with time. In today’s world, this is the key to everything, including social life, career and business. What is more, LEGO is a flexible instrument that can serve as a visualization material for complex and abstract ideas, therefore it can be used for in-class learning.

LEGO didn’t stop on creating toys for young children. Today, the company strives to assist students to combine joy and learning in a very innovative way. The LEGO Education project provides numerous educational programs and software sets that help children master complicated subjects such as coding and math with the help of LEGO blocks. These packages include programs for all grades and anyone can buy them. However, most of these programs are made for classroom learning in particular. For example, Coding Express is a software that provides simple and clear lessons of computer science that use smart LEGO visualizations. While the software is aimed at students, it is supposed that high school and college teachers are going to introduce the basics to learners with the help of these special programs. Doing so, educators will expand their horizons by including interdisciplinary materials into a traditional curriculum, which is a very beneficial idea.

What is more, LEGO Education project has launched a program that unites professors and teachers, who believe that specified software can improve students’ learning experience. Their aim is to allow LEGO tools support learners who are interested in disciplines like math, engineering, computer science, and technology. Educators take part in seminars and workshops, defining the best ways to implement LEGO projects into the class. All of them are assured that this will make the education process easier and boost children’s creativity.

      Hi, I am a 13 year old and I've been playing games for practically my entire life, and I am thinking about getting into game development as my career. However I am worried about for one the pay, and if I will be able to support myself. And two if I will even be able to get a job in the industry because obviously a lot of people would want to get a job in this field and it will be very competitive. I have already started fiddling with unity and i really like it, so its not a matter of resources or if I enjoy it. So i guess my question for someone who is already in the industry is was it worth it? And if so do you have any tips or advise on how to get a good job as a game developer. Thanks in advance..

      I've been dabbling in programming for quite a while nothing professional, and the reason for that is cause I've always wanted to create games, so while learning I decided a game engine would be the better option and learned unity and I'm able to create some pretty cool stuff like an inventory system the code might not be the best but it works exactly how I visioned it too, but lately I've been wanting to learn how to create everything that makes up a game, like Collisions,Entity system we if go that route, Input system and things like that in Monogame since u basically have to implement all that stuff yourself but what I've realized is that I honestly don't know how to do ANYTHING I almost feel like I don't even know how to program it makes me super demotivated/depressed, I tried to create an Input system Idek where to start its like  im staring at the screen for 4 hours and realized I didnt do anything cause Im lost, I wanna learn how to create good systems too like for input being able to remap to different keys, having multiple keys for an input so keyboard a and keyboard o and gamepad a would be all on the same action things like that, does anyone have tips / book recommendations or anything of the sort for these kinds of things? and how did you learn how to do these things if u can?

      Hello everyone !
      Im doing a research for a future StartUp in Mobile Game Dev and got to a point of defining our short, medium and long term strategy. We are a small team of two developers, doing mostly products for other company's, not Game Development, and we plan to start doing Mobile Games. Based on the market trends and statistics, Casual and Hyper Casual games are most ”in demand” now, so we decided for the first period of time, for the short term, to focus on Developing Hyper Casual and Casual games. There is lot to cover but for now, lets simplify the task.
      2 Developers; Software = Unity; Platform = Mobile (Android and IOS). Time to develop a product = 1-2 months. Marketing budget = 1000-3000 USD. Product type = Freemium Hyper Casual Games  
      Is there any way to have an income (1000-5000$/per game), without a publisher and using from 0-2000$ for marketing ? Im talking about real examples not ”luck” or some ”hype miracles”. How to sell those Hyper Casual in the best way (the most profitable way) ? Any Ideas ? Any experiences ? If not Hyper Casual then what else ? Is there any way to sell games without investing millions into marketing and being a successful business ? Success = (Invested money) x 2   There are Millions of Hyper Casual Games on the market, how to stand out ?  One friend suggested us to create games for PC and publish them on Steam instead of Mobile, and focusing more on Casual games, with a longer time of development. What do you think about this idea, is it worth it or not ? Mobile platforms are more accessible comparative to PC...  By the way, don't get me wrong, I like Good Quality Games, but in this market, ”a good game is a well marketed game"...
      If anyone have any other Ideas of how they would start or manage this business, please let me know. Any experience/opinion matters. 
      Thank you in advance

      Hello all, I am a current high school senior with no prior experience with game development or programming in general. I'm applying to several different colleges for a bachelor's degree in a computer science field, but I'd like to learn some preliminary knowledge in the months before I begin post-secondary education. However, as a member of an extremely low-income family, I won't have access to a computer until I start college and can only use my phone for now. Is there a way I could still learn effectively through this method? If so, where should I start?

      I am currently in school for Game Development and for an assignment I have to make a prototype that showcases my writing skills. I am developing a choice based Twine game as my prototype but I have a few questions. The basic premise is focusing on the emotional consequences and traumas of fighting in a mech during war time.

      How long should the prototype be in order to showcase my writing skills?

      Should I include any limited art? I am not good at developing 2D art assets and I'm worried that adding some might detract from writing.
