LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® in education inspires students and stimulates their thinking, creating an ideal environment for learning and discussion by using bricks to build metaphors that students can use for expressing their thoughts, feelings and ideas.
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® involves 3D construction and story-telling; a facilitated method involving group discussion, knowledge sharing, problem-solving and decision making based on research experimentation and finding new ways to face challenges.
It’s safe – the focus is on the bricks not the person. It’s non-judgmental – there is no single right answer. It’s inclusive – every student gets the opportunity to be active, engaged and listened to. Every student can express feelings in a constructive manner, resulting in deeper understanding, more ideas and co-creative thinking.

The Power of Good
(themed on anti-bullying week 2018)
This fun session is designed for students (and teachers) to co-create ‘Our Power of Good’. Focusing on how good can be powerful stop bullying happening in schools and communities.
The session begins with each and every person building one specific animal and demonstrates every person’s unique thinking; no single person is right, every build is right, a level playing field.
This is followed by simple explanation and demonstration of the use of 3D models to create metaphors, demonstrating how these are used to story-tell; communicate thoughts, feelings and ideas, and gain deeper understanding, safely.
Throughout the session, students will be asked to build individual models to explain their thoughts around the topic of anti-bullying and the power that ‘good’ has in tackling bullying, leading to co-creating and taking ownership of ‘Our Power of Good’.
One and all!
(themed on celebrating and respecting uniqueness)
Students (and teachers) co-create their future guidelines; a set of values and behaviours based around respectfulness within their diverse and inclusive community.
The session begins with each and every person building a specific animal and celebrates our uniqueness – how every build is unique, just like people.
This is followed by an explanation and demonstration of the use of 3D models to create metaphors and show how these are used to story-tell; communicate thoughts, feelings and ideas in a safe way.
In this session, students will be asked to build individual models to explain their thoughts around celebrating uniqueness and being respectful, culminating in the co-creation of future behaviours within their diverse and inclusive community – One and All!
