BreakoutEDU

BreakoutEDU is the newest 21st Century Skill based teaching idea sweeping the country. BreakoutEDU involves teachers using games that involved collaboration, critical thinking and communication for students to "break in" by solving puzzles and unlocking different locks. Used as a review, introduction to new material or to encourage team work - the possibilities are endless.

We currently have two large and five small BreakoutEDU boxes in Princeton that can be checked out to use in your classroom. See below for a picture of what each box contains. The BreakoutEDU website has numerous published and unpublished (sandbox) games that can be incorporated into your classroom easily.

See below for a list of games from the BreakoutEDU website that have been printed and prepared for use in 477!

Sign Jodi up to set up your boxes and locks and your game and/or to co-teach with you for your first (or 50th) Breakout! Check out pictures below of Princeton students doing BreakoutEDU in their classrooms!
