Class Buddies at Mt. View School: An Exciting Digital Breakout Room Adventure
At Mt. View School, the 2nd and 3rd graders have been enjoying a special school-wide program called Class Buddies. This program allows students to connect with their fellow students and engage in fun activities throughout the year. Recently, the students had an exciting opportunity to participate in a digital breakout room experience using Breakout EDU, thanks to a generous grant from the Flanders PTA.
A digital breakout room is a virtual escape room experience that involves solving puzzles and challenges to "break out" of a virtual room. Breakout EDU provides pre-made digital breakout room experiences designed to promote critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and creativity.
The Class Buddies at Mt. View School were thrilled to participate in a digital breakout room activity. The students were divided into small groups and assigned a breakout room scenario. Each scenario had a unique theme and storyline, adding an element of excitement and adventure to the activity.
Working together, the students used their problem-solving skills, critical thinking abilities, and creativity to unlock clues and progress through the room. The digital format of the breakout room allowed for immediate feedback and hints, keeping the students engaged and motivated.
Throughout the activity, the students demonstrated excellent teamwork and collaboration. They communicated effectively, listened to each other's ideas, and supported one another in their quest to break out of the room. This collaborative environment not only enhanced their problem-solving skills but also fostered a sense of camaraderie among the students.
The Class Buddies' digital breakout room adventure was a memorable experience for the 2nd and 3rd graders at Mt. View School.
