Play BreakoutEDU.com Game called TimeWarp. Break Out of the Box with BreakoutEDU is a platform for immersive learning games exemplifying high- and low-tech integration. Experience the competitive fun of communication, collaboration and problem-solving skills. BreakoutEDU was inspired by "escape rooms" around the world where you pay to get "locked in" a room with friends and try to escape by solving puzzles and unlocking codes. Experience a pre-created learning adventure with a "locked kit" and a website to access clues. Play Time Warp: Get lost in time to navigate the history of communication to return to the present. The framework of the learning game ensures that involvement leads to understanding. Players convert information and data into useful knowledge in the act of figuring out the problem. Breakouts are being used to teach core academic subjects. Learning standards that apply problem solving strategies are embedded throughout. The presenter offered this experinece at VITALearn in Vermont (Dynamic Landscapes). (Presenter(s): Cynthia Day, Educator/Maker/Co-Learner, retn.org/show/why-I-make-robots-Cynthia-da)
