Goal

My goal in teaching is to engage students by giving them immersive learning experiences on a daily basis. With the Breakout boxes, I will be able to turn my classroom into an escape room and students will be able to review content and compete against the clock, testing their content knowledge and skills.  

 

What will be done with my students

The Breakout EDU boxes come with a set of locks and access to the Breakout learning platform, which has a variety of "escape room" style activities. These activities cover everything from content review to teambuilding activities. Students use their knowledge to solve a variety of skills, gaining lock codes that they use to help them break out of the room. My goal is to use these activities on an ongoing basis in my science class to help review content and in my small-group mentoring to build teamwork skills and provide collaboration opportunities. We will be able to use the locks provided over and over with a variety of content areas. 

 

Benefits to my students

Review is often something that is boring for students and teachers alike. I am sick of the typical Powerpoint-presentation-style review games, and so are my students. These boxes will allow us to review in ways that are interactive and engaging, resulting in a more thorough review. As the teacher, I will be able to see student shortcomings and issues and assist, because there is no guessing in a Breakout- students either know how to find the answer or they don't! 

 

Budget Narrative

The bundle includes 2 full breakout boxes and one platform access code. It will be purchased from the Breakout EDU website.
