Limited Capacity seats available

Introduced to BLC15 attendees last year with rave reviews, Breakout EDU is an immersive learning platform that engages learners of all ages (even adults) in a live gaming experience that promotes teamwork, problem solving and critical thinking opportunities. It all begins with a Breakout EDU kit, the core of the game. This kit can then be used alone or expanded upon with numerous accessories to make it usable within a variety of curricularly aligned games that can be used to teach in a collaborative context.
This pre-conference session will begin with an introduction to Breakout EDU and the opportunity to play one of the many games that are available to all educators. Following game play, we will lead you through a discussion that we encourage you to have with all who play—focusing on what was learned, the successes and areas to improve upon for future success working within a group, and how what was learned ties back to all collaborative learning opportunities within the classroom.
During the rest of the session, all participants will work together to crowdsource the development of a game that we will then submit for publication within the Breakout EDU game directory. This means that the work you do, will potentially be used by educators from around the world!

 Participants in this session will:
  • Receive an overview of the Breakout EDU platform learn about the Breakout EDU kit and options for expansion 
  • Play a Breakout EDU game with co-participants 
  • Be exposed to a series of discussion questions to use following game play collaborative 
  • Create a Breakout EDU game with co-participants 
  • Have an absolute BLAST!
Breakout EDU: It’s time for something different in education.
Attendee Requirements: Bring your own laptop and/or tablet with you.
