Breakouts and Digital Breakouts are a trending topic in the world of ed-tech.
BreakoutEDU is like an escape room combined with educational content! Instead of breaking out of a room, students must work together to figure out the combinations to actual locks that are attached to a box with something hidden inside.
A Digital Breakout is the same escape room-type experience but uses Google Forms and digital clues instead of locks and physical clues. It’s cheaper and easier!!!
The Basic Building Blocks of a Digital Breakout:
- Google Site
- Google Form
- Google Drawing (optional)
- Google Slides (optional)
I have created a one stop shop for Digital Breakouts in a website linked below. In it, you will find information about what a digital breakout is, how to build one, and examples and resources to help you in the process!
