Day Two: continuation/hands on work session for participants who have completed the full day session on February 7, 2019. You have probably heard the buzz about Breakout EDU. But have you experienced a Digital Breakout? In some ways, this form of Breakout EDU is more conducive to the “average” school room. No classroom set-up is required, students work in collaborative teams on a shared device, and there are no issues with those pesky locks! In this workshop, you will learn how to create your own Digital Breakout based on your own curriculum. Digital breakouts may take some time and thought to create, but once you have done the legwork, they can be used over and over with students. They provide the same engaged learning experience for students that traditional Breakouts involve: critical thinking, teamwork and complex problem solving. Come with a colleague and create a Digital Breakout together!

Prerequisites: working knowledge and experience with Google apps.
