Next Steps with Breakout EDU
So you have done a breakout and caught the bug. Now what?
1) Connect with other educators using Breakout. There are numerous Facebook Groups you can join. I suggest everyone join the Facebook General Discussion group, and then join your group of specialized area.
Gifted & Talented Program Teachers
Physical Education Teachers
Art & Music Teachers
They have also created the “Getting Started with Breakout EDU (https://goo.gl/Oad0El)” group as a place you can direct people. Their hope is to reduce the number or repeat questions and topics.
2) Follow BreakoutEDU on Twitter and use the hashtag for great inspiration @BreakoutEDU #breakoutedu
3) Create your own breakout EDU game
Read all their tips for creating your own games.
Use the template to help get started and I like to collaborate with other teachers when creating them. The more minds working together the more ideas for clues.
Test it on a group and then post it to one of the Facebook groups and see if someone else will test it and give feedback.
Once it is tweaked, be sure to submit your lesson to share with others
