I'd say I support this, if it weren't for the fact that I don't know how UK schools teach, or that I don't really know who Richard Matthews is. But I would like to see what a physics class would be like...

/eyebrowraise If I'm understanding this right, it's not a Lego-only school, but it uses Lego to reinforce what they teach there?Seems interesting.Oh, something else...
"In the UK you're taught how to pass exams. In Scandinavia you're taught how to think."
Pretty sure people don't need to be taught how to think. I think autonomously. >.>

Completely true about UK schools, the ones I went to at least anyway. A lot of subjects you aren't taught for the sake of intelligence/knowledge, rather it's like you're training to tackle the specific questions that will come up in the exam and don't learn any other application of the subject. I've never seen a journalist utilise "point, quote, comment" for instance...

Wow. If only I lived in Denmark!
But how does it teach all subjects?
(Majhost is down, so this is my stand-in signature picture.)
May both Mata Nui and Ekimu be with you, traveler, and let not Makuta shed shadow on your way.

Tottaly agree about the UK system. GCSE and A-levels may make you remember most possible pointless thing, while other forms like BTEC are scoffed at even though they teach you skills that you will use for the rest of your life.
But yeah, this Lego thing is awesome

Oh my Gahlok, can I please go? Please? PLEASE?!?!
*ahem* This is something I never expected them to do, but I can't help but think that it might have just become the Mecca of LEGO other than LEGOLAND of course.

So its basically a private school, funded by Lego and with extra Lego supplies? Sounds good, I'd give Lego significant credit for some of my education, so to offer that sort of thing on a larger scale can only be a good thing.
Have you seen my Blog? I understand if you haven't

Weird. Well, I could imagine what the architecture and the engineering classes would be like, but how they would teach literature escapes me.
Ever seen a Mindstorms kit play the part of Dogberry?
Anyway, this is certainly one of those things every child dreams of but never really expects to see, but it should be interesting to see how this progresses. I couldn't tell you if there's a large margin of success behind a LEGO school, but I don't see why not. Plus, the fact that educators are finally beginning to realize the importance of hands-on learning means we need more ideas like this.
