Break Out of the Box with BreakoutEDU: 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.

We will have a pre-created learning adventure with a ""locked kit"" and a website to access clues.

We will 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."

Get Chatty: How the Snapchat App Captures Ideas, Connections, Explanations, Inspirations, Moods, and Creative Guts
Listen. No one's saying to turn kids loose with social media and hope for the best. Be real. But acceptable use policies don't necessarily prevent use of the app for learning and documenting. The app allows users to download created content which can then be applied in a myriad of ways. Even if your students don't use it, there are tons of applications for the educator. Oh, and there's app smashing too! I'll show you how. (Download the app ahead of time and start an account if you can. )
