1. STUDENT GAME DESIGN
With the latest update to the Breakout EDU platform students can now design their own digital games. By having students design games aligned to specific academic topics or skills, teachers transfer the ownership of learning from teacher to student. Once the students are comfortable with the design tools it will be a great way to ease the burden of lesson planning. You will have peace of mind knowing that your students are working at the top of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
2. PEER GAME REVIEW
Teachers now have the option of adding student created games to a private classroom library where other students in the class can play their peer games. This is a fun way to review any academic topic before a test.
3. CREATE AND MANAGE CLASSES
Teachers have the ability to create and manage classes. This streamlines the facilitation of Breakout EDU digital games.
4. ASSIGN DIGITAL GAMES TO STUDENTS
With a few clicks of the mouse teachers can now assign digital games to their classes. This makes for a perfect “do now” activity or formative assessment. Teachers can either choose pre-created games from the platform library or build their own using the digital game builder.
5. TRACK STUDENT RESULTS
Once you’ve created a class in your Breakout EDU account anytime your student completes one of the assigned digital games you will see the results. You can see how many puzzles they completed and how long it took them. You also have the ability to download the results to a spreadsheet.
