Our research areas

The ongoing and increasingly rapid change in the world implies, among other things, the need for a continual renewal of education. Lego® Education kits can be used as a means of education and education, with the help of which not only mathematics and science subjects, but also native language and foreign language education, as well as history, can be made more diverse.

LEGO® Education Kits Motivize learners not only through the game, the "grazing" experience, but also help to improve communication, algorithmic thinking, and emotional, social, and creative competences.

In the LEGO® Education Innovation Studio of the University of Nyíregyháza, we work to provide the methodological background for the use of LEGO® in the transfer of knowledge with tools. On the basis of appropriate theoretical knowledge and as widely as possible after practical testing, we will be familiar with the current and future users of LEGO® Education kits.
