B15 – Toronto: Escape to Freedom: A Digital Escape game
Presenters: Jesus Panem, Bianca DeSouza
Description: This workshop offers an alternative approach to “gamify” Religious Education lessons using Breakout Edu (a platform for immersive learning games – www.breakoutedu.com). It is an excellent tool for both educators and learners to develop and practice their 21st Century skills including collaboration, communication, critical thinking and problem solving. Teacher-participants will compete in a Social Justice-inspired Digital Escape game and will be provided with templates, links and resources to enable them to start building their own digital breakout game using Google for Education applications. Participants are encouraged to bring their own device.
