How I Use It
I use the physical breakout kit as either a topic introduction or as a summative assessment on a topic. The pre-made Breakouts are great and are across a variety of levels and subjects. I usually modify them or create my own, because I know my students. The breakouts are great to challenge students in collaborative and critical thinking. The digital breakouts can be used as individual assessments.
My Take
Breakout EDU provides so many topic and subject-specific breakouts for FREE. They also give you the tools to make your own. You can buy the box/lock kit, but you can also get the tools from Amazon or your local hardware store. It's usually a large group task unless you have multiple kits. Alternately digital breakouts (https://www.breakoutedu.com/digital) can be done individually.
