Recent Research from the University of Cambridge

Cambridge University's Centre for Research on Play in Education, Development and Learning (PEDAL) researched playful writing through the year-long Play, Narrative and Narrative Skills Projects (PLaNS).  Initial understanding shows that using LEGO® bricks in a teaching environment, and writing in a playful way, can help improve the following:

  • Motivation for writing: Children who participated in the project wrote for longer periods and produced more creative stories
  • Metacognition: The research explored children's metacognitive skills – or the ability to control thinking processes - and found that their ability to plan and control these processes improved
  • Collaborative skills: The results demonstrated that children, who learned to collaborate in groups, showed improved group skills
