Use These Templates to Make Your Own Digital Breakouts! – Sustainable Teaching

The New Google Sites has gone live. Please read my blog post about making Digital Breakouts in New Google Sites. Additionally, please read my post comparing the classic and new versions of Google Sites. Digital Breakouts, the entirely online offshoot of the BreakoutEDU movement, are a great way to help students fall in love with problem-solving.

I make and use them, as do my colleagues who have found innovative ways to incorporate them into instruction. Recently, I have had colleagues and educators on social media tell me they would like to make digital breakouts but the task seems daunting. So here it is – a Digital Breakout template website, a replicable Google Site template, and a Google Folder with template files. The site demonstrates some great tools for digital breakouts: Google Forms with Quiz Mode enabled for feedback, Quizlet, EdPuzzle, and Thinglink. Like this: Like Loading... Amazing Race EDU.

We learned a ton of new things, and were re-invigorated when we returned to work on Monday.

Of course, our minds started spinning - how could we hide a clue to a lock for a Breakout activity in an augmented reality image?

We decided to hide numbers in a Dodecahedron pattern that would only be revealed when viewed through the Quiver App. You can see the result below: We can't wait to use this in our next Breakout EDU session! If you want to try it out yourself, here's the link to the final file. If you'd like to make your own, here's the key we used to create it. Document the Gettysburg Address!

We’re currently in open beta and anyone with a Breakout EDU kit can begin testing the games. The password for all the games is "showyourwork" There are two ways you can get a kit: Option 1: You can purchase it directly from us here. Option 2: You can put together your own open source kit. All the games on the site are password protected to prevent players from looking up solutions while playing. Also, we are encouraging people to design their own games.
