  • During her early experiences in teaching, PhD candidate and Psychology teacher Shafina Vohra found herself with a room full of students bored by science. Rather than plodding through the textbook, she took a risk and got them using their hands, learning with their hands. This made her realise the power of hands-on learning. Teacher of A Level Psychology, Head of Faculty Academic, CPL Lead Academic and LEGO lead at London Design & Engineering UTC As a LEGO Education Academy teacher trainer, I use Lego education concepts for STEM based learning and have also developed my own use of LEGO bricks in my teaching and in training staff. I use LEGO foundation 6 bricks, serious play concepts and other components of LEGO education in my delivery of training events or lessons. As a part-time MPhil/PhD candidate in Psychology at UCL, I investigate the effects of hands-on learning using LEGO and LEGO Education to look at the effects of motivation and creativity in learning and whether this leads to an increased interest in the uptake of STEM subjects. I study deep learning vs. surface learning within instruction or in an open context. I am fascinated by the importance of hands-on learning in general and how it facilitates deeper learning, enjoyment, problem-solving, emotional stability, curiosity and creativity, This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
