There is a new platform for immersive learning games that’s taking classrooms across the world by storm. Based on the same principles as interactive Escape The Room digital games — which challenge players to use their surroundings to escape a prison-like scenario — Breakout EDU is a collaborative learning experience that enhances critical thinking and creativity while fostering a growth mindset in students.
This is a very cool example of “out of the box” thinking, taking the concept of escape rooms and turning it on its head. An escape room is a interactive experience where a small group of people work through problem to literally escape from the room. Since an escape room would have all sorts of issues in a school setting, Breakout EDU has groups of students working through problems to open the box.
