Have you been wondering how to get started with BreakOut EDU?
Want a chance to win your own kit  or borrow a kit to try it out? 

Come join the SW Regional Vita-Learn meeting Tuesday, January 30th from 4-6pm!  

Please RSVP here.

Proctor Elementary School
14 School Street
Proctor, VT

We're so excited to have Erica Zimmer show us how Breakout EDU works and how the team at RCSU has used the kits in a variety of classrooms.  The Breakout EDU kit allows for the facilitation of games where players use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open the locked box. Games are available for all ages and content areas.  Breakout EDU games transfer the ownership of learning from the instructor to the student, making it easy to observe how learners approach problem-solving and apply their knowledge. In addition to the content knowledge needed to succeed in a specific game, all Breakout EDU games require critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication. A Breakout EDU game provides learners with many opportunities to fail forward. Every unsuccessful attempt to open a lock forces the player to try again.  

We'll have one kit as our doorprize, plus one kit to share inside our region.
