BreakoutEDU at The Davis Academy
Faculty at The Davis Academy have incorporated an exciting learning tool in their classroom called BreakoutEDU. Designed as a platform that gamifies the curriculum, BreakoutEDU brings an escape room feel to the learning process. This innovative learning platform requires students to collaborate in small groups as they complete challenges that unlock levels within BreakoutEDU. Through a series of questions, students discover information from clues related to their coursework. Once all clues have been discovered and levels have been unlocked, students “break out,” having achieved their learning goals.
BreakoutEDU is adapted across subject levels, ranging from language arts to mathematics at both the lower and middle school. By participating in these activities, students learn about the subject matter within their curriculum, while simultaneously honing their 21st century learning skills, such as collaboration, problem solving, resourcefulness, and critical thinking.
Davis Academy teachers have implemented BreakoutEDU on campus and have also shared their expertise in teaching with this tool beyond their own classrooms. During the Atlanta Area Technology Educators Conference hosted at The Davis Academy, faculty members proudly facilitated a session for other educators, including media specialists, directors of innovation and administrators, sharing the inventive ways they use BreakoutEDU in their learning environments.
