I Introduction Because Syria is considered a developing country, the integration of education and technology is still in its infancy. However, there are some existing experiments, which show that this process has truly been initiated. The use of lego robotics has spread through multiple schools

The book is meant to elucidate the concept of justice and its dictates in the various fields of life as well as the implications of injustice.

It has a pananthropic character charting the way for symmetry in life and the ascent of man. The book has a lego-philosophical character of interest to every anthropological and societal discipline.

Examples from the Universe of LEGO High Tech Toys

As these toys require a certain amount of technological knowledge that average children do not posses or might have difficulties to obtain, narratives are successfully used for making children interested in the specific challenges and for motivating them to start on the learning curve. I argue that narratives could potentially have significantly broader implementation, allowing for actual learning of mechanical constructions, computer programming, and other technical contents in a more efficient and joyful way, motivating and engaging even those children not initially inclined towards abstract thinking. I believe that research efforts in this area could be fruitful.
