Students at Yarmouth Central School were among the first to try and Breakout with TCRSB’s new Breakout EDU kits.
Breakout EDU is an educational games platform that allow teachers to create and run engaging hands on activities that encourage collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity. Student are presented with a series of themed challenges and must solve them using the clues and tool provided in order to unlock the locks and open the breakout boxes before time expires and win the game. The games work similar to escape room challenges that are becoming more and more popular however, with the Breakout Platform, teachers can easily integrate the kits into all curriculum areas to create even more engaging and memorable learning experiences.
TCRSB staff are happy to announce that each of our schools has been provided with their own Breakout EDU kit and the response from teachers and administrators has been overwhelmingly positive and we look forward to seeing what staff and students will be able to create with these new educational tools.
