Top educators influence LEGO Education product development to create better learning environments for students

WHAT: Fifty educators from across the United States and Canada were selected by LEGO® Education to join the 2013 LEGO Education Advisory Panel (LEAP) and provide product feedback to the LEGO Education Innovation and Marketing teams.

WHY: These 50 educators will collaborate with LEGO Education to develop classroom solutions and curriculum that elevate products within humanities and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts and 21st-century learning skills. LEAP members have an opportunity to be very influential on product development and design. These select teachers offer insight and years of classroom knowledge that will help LEGO Education create better classroom solutions. Additional LEAP membership privileges include speaking engagements at LEGO Education conferences, symposiums, and workshops as well as sharing student and classroom success stories through social media.

WHO: Selected 2013 LEAP members include seven preschool, 15 elementary, 11 middle school, seven high school, and 10 university educators. LEAP 2013 consists of 28 educators held over from last year’s panel and 22 teachers who joined this year.
