A couple of weeks ago, myself and a colleague completed our first Digital BreakoutEdu. Click HERE to read about it. It was a great success – the students loved it. More importantly, they were able to use critical thinking skills to solve problems from our content standards. It’s was the best of both worlds!
As I sat at home today, I found myself reflecting upon what I wanted to do in my classroom with my students this week. Don’t misunderstand me, I am a serious organizer when it comes to lesson planning. I am neurotically detailed. My lesson plans were ready to go, except for tomorrow. I was just not feeling excited about the lessons I had planned. They were just kind of…blah. Not bad – just nothing that I was looking forward to teaching. And, let’s be honest, if I’m not excited, the students won’t be excited.
So, as I sat at home today, I decided I wanted to build my own Digital BreakoutEdu that revisited the content from our PBL Stock Market Project…One thing led to another and, a couple of hours later, my first Digital BreakoutEdu was created!
I am SO excited to try this out in my classroom tomorrow. I think that the students will enjoy it and it will be a great way to practice our critical thinking skills, content skills, and produce greater resiliency in my students.
If you are interested in trying it out, click HERE or click the image above. Feel free to use this in your classrooms, but please let me know how it goes – I am excited to hear how it went and what can be modified for future classes.
