Creating Lego movies with an iPad, Lego's and Brictek is not just promoting technology skills; it is the blending of cross curricular objectives while it includes problem-based learning, inquiry/discovery methods, role-play, simulation, and cooperative learning. To many of our ESOL students, speaking English is difficult, but playing with Lego's has its own universal language. Creating animations allows students to convey an idea, concept, or thought in a way that words can't.
