Singaporean Teacher Builds LEGO Phone Stand To Facilitate Quarantine Teaching

The following story truly epitomised the idea that necessity is the mother of invention. And in this case, it was a couple of LEGO bricks.

During the circuit-breaker semi-lockdown in Singapore, a primary teacher by the name of Low Xiaoxuan came up with an ingenious idea of building a stand for her phone to be able to stream her lessons online.

This setup enabled her to carry out her lesson plan without having to go through the trouble of holding her phone and worry about a dip in quality.

Low’s ingenuity garnered the attention of Ong Ye Kung, the Republic’s Minister of Education, who lauded her efforts in coping with the circuit-breaker situation.

It may not be ideal to teach from home, but teachers are rising to the challenge. Everyday, I am hearing more stories…

In the eyes of us geeks this only goes to show that LEGO bricks are definitely always handy, even in a crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic. And despite not being the best-looking MOC in the market, it certainly did the job for Miss Low.

Speaking of coping with the crisis at hand, here are several more ways in which you can do so, be it video games, tabletop games, TV shows, Zoom backgrounds, e-books, and audiobooks.
