Program: NERIC: Model Schools

Dates: 1/8/2018

New
Foster creativity, collaboration, cooperation, critical thinking, and communication skills in your classroom with a fun and immersive game that will challenge and engage your students! These exciting activities apply to a wide variety of grade levels and subject areas. Breakout EDU will have students working together and thinking in new ways as they solve puzzles, decipher clues, and piece together information to figure out how to break into the Breakout box.

Breakout EDU games are similar to an “escape room” experience, but instead of being “locked” in a room, the goal is to figure out the clues and open the locked Breakout box.

For this session, you are simply a participant in a Breakout game! Come and work alongside fellow educators to solve a puzzle and gain experience with this type of learning activity. The best way to understand the Breakout EDU excitement is to come and be part of the game!

Learn to create Google Forms and use all of the features with students and/or colleagues. Forms are easy to construct, and are designed using content pertinent to your subject area. Respondents fill out the form online, and Google "instantly" summarizes the answers in a spreadsheet and charts. You can add images, videos, sections and more. You can use images as part of the question or as part of the answer. Ideas for use include quizzes, how-to steps, assignment collection, science experiments, math reviews and more. You can make the forms "self-correcting" for grading tests quickly. Assign points to each question, create answer keys, and give students immediate feedback or email grades later. Add links to "extra help resources" within questions. You can give individual feedback and private comments, and hand-score for students who need special attention.

Participants should have a personal Google/Gmail account or school account before the first session. The instructor will email instructions for creating Google accounts when she receives the session roster. We will use the school's computers, but attendees may bring their own laptops. They should have one of the following browsers installed: Firefox, Chrome, or Safari. Please do not bring a mobile device to work on.
