What Playing with LEGO® Taught Me About Curriculum Design

Posted by Randon Ruggles on 5/1/2020

I spent many hours as a boy building LEGO® boats, cars, planes, and submarines. When I was done with a LEGO® creation, the pieces did not go into a box like the rest of my toys.

Posted by Donna Weber on 11/14/2019
submissions for the 2020 CEdMA Impact Award are now open!
