Breakout EDU – Digital
Breakout EDU allows you to easily recreate a breakout room in your classroom with a fraction of the prep time. This engaging pedagogical activity ensures that content meets high expectations of critical thinking, ensures collaboration, and inspires creative thinking. It engages students from beginning to end. Breakout EDU can be as cheap as free or as expensive as $150. It can be analog or digital. You can use pre-made ones or design your own. Free pre-made content and games are all over the Internet.
Breakout EDU is inspired by Escape Rooms, like at EscapeCape. Escape Rooms can give inspiration for Breakout EDU boxes. You are not always limited to the box. Think outside of the box. Below are several resources for designing Breakout EDU activities.
