Product Description
What is a Breakout?
The concept of BreakoutEDU comes from the idea of escape rooms where groups of people agree to be locked in a room and they must beat the clock to search their surroundings for clues to unlock a series of locks that are keeping them inside. A Digital Breakout takes the same concept, but turns it digital. Participants are given a one-page site that includes text, images and links to clues, some of which may be misleading. There is a Google Form embedded on the page where you submit your answers to a series of “lock” questions and each lock will immediately tell you if you’re successful.

Why Use Breakouts?
1. Breakouts shift the ownership of learning from the teacher to the student.
2. In addition to the content knowledge needed to succeed in a specific game, breakouts require critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication.
3. A breakout provides learners with many opportunities to fail and try again. Every unsuccessful attempt to open a lock forces students to reexamine their information and their thinking.

Why Use Digital Breakouts?
A digital break out requires no preparation of materials, no time spent setting up, and no purchase of a Breakout EDU kit or any other special equipment.

Zombies!
This digital breakout is intended for practicing computation with whole numbers. Students will use their knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to solve clues to unlock their front door to escape from the zombie attack.

In this Escape Room-like game, students will interact with a variety of text and media in order to find clues. Students will use all of this information to find the codes that will unlock a series of locks. This unique activity will require students to think creatively and work collaboratively.
