LEGO® Welcomes US Educators to the LEGO Education Master Educator Program
Boston, Massachusetts (June 21, 2018) – Today, LEGO® Education announced the first cohort of the US LEGO Education Master Educator program. Selected participants, including Lindsay Foster from Burleson ISD, applied to the program which is designed for educators in early learning through secondary school who currently use LEGO hands-on learning solutions in their classroom. The selected participants embody the LEGO Education mission of enabling success for all students through hands-on learning experiences.
The 110 LEGO Education Master Educators will enjoy many activities including access to like-minded educators, insider news of special LEGO Education offers and events and recognition. They will also be invited to provide feedback to LEGO hands-on learning solutions and programs.
“Shining a spotlight on the good work of educators and sharing best practices from classrooms across the country are top priorities for LEGO Education,” said Silver McDonald, head of LEGO Education North America. “It’s why we’re launching the LEGO Education Master Educator program and eagerly awaiting to welcome and start learning from the first cohort of Master Educators.”
Program applications for US educators are currently closed but will open again in January 2019 for the next cohort that will be announced in June 2019. Master Educators serve as volunteer ambassadors of LEGO Education and do not receive monetary compensation for their participation in the program.
