Breakout EDU | Game Experience & Game Creation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Breakout EDU allows educators to transform any space into a game-based learning environment. Using a Breakout EDU kit, participants will have the opportunity to play a couple of games and reflect in the morning, and then develop plans for incorporating the games into their classroom or professional development experiences in the afternoon.
Breakout EDU creates ultra-engaging learning games for people of all ages. Games (Breakouts) teach teamwork, problem solving, critical thinking, and troubleshooting by presenting students with challenges that ignite their natural drive to problem-solve.
Breakouts are perfect for classrooms as well as professional development for staff. At the end of a Breakout, players are immediately eager for their next opportunity! Breakouts can be used to teach core academic subjects including math, science, history, language arts and have embedded standards that apply problem solving strategies within a real world or collaborative context.
Observing student and teacher reactions has reinforced that playing Breakout EDU escape games could bring a new element to our learning. How great it is to be given an opportunity to apply past knowledge and make connections in order to solve new problems? Using problem-solving, critical thinking, logic, creativity, communication, collaboration...these are the skills that must be emphasized in order to become lifelong learners!
