Experiences in Communication

Certified LEGO© SERIOUS PLAY™ Facilitator, Researcher and LEGO Interviews inventor Legoviews & B4Bricks.orgApril 2011 – Present London, United Kingdom

Trained and Certified LEGO© SERIOUS PLAY™ facilitator, I design and run LSP workshops for organisations and educational institutions, designing experiences according to the specific needs of each case.  From the Original LEGO© SERIOUS PLAY™ method, I have derived two specific applications: LegoViews and a maieutic/socratic approach for University students.  LegoViews are Interviews made using LEGO bricks changing the underlying cognitive preocess of a question/answer based interviewg process [www.legoviews.com]: it is an innovative investigative method which delves into reality through the use of LEGO bricks.  It’s based on constructionist theories and it’s based on LEGO© SERIOUS PLAY™methodology.  From the initial intuition in 2009 up to today, LegoViews as a methodology and I, engaged in a constant experimentation, ranging from academic research to investigative journalism, TV and education.   Recently, I have been experimenting new approaches to education at University level using the LSP dynamics to turn students into ‘Active learners’ and enhance their critical thinking, with amazing results.
