My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!
My students love puzzles, and game-based learning has proven to be critical to their mastery of content and skills.
This project is for my 10th grade ELA course.
Breakout EDU is an immersive learning games platform which transforms a classroom into an academically-focused escape room and facilitate games where players use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open the locked box. With Breakout EDU, students learn the 4 Cs of a sound education: critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication. These are all vital skills for students to be successful in and out of the classroom.
Together with the novels and texts we read during the year, this Breakout EDU Kit will be integrated into various assignments and assessments in order to enhance literacy and ELA content and skills.
My students will use Breakout EDU to help them read and understand the many facets and issues related to World War I while they are reading the novel All Quiet on the Western Front. For example, the online games within the Breakout EDU platform will help create engaging activities that will help foster understanding of why World War I started and how it was different from previous wars in terms of technology and politics while also reinforcing essential English curriculum-based skills like research and inference. My students will benefit from using the 21st century skills Breakout EDU encourages while creating a fun, engaging space for learning.
