Breakout EDU is a new active learning tool purchased by the ECTL and is available to UW instructors.
Breakout EDU is an immersive learning games platform that brings collaboration to both remote and in-person learning. Breakout EDU games consist of a combination of physical and digital puzzle elements that must be solved in a set amount of time. Players of all ages are challenged to open the locked Breakout EDU box using critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity.
There are two ways to use Breakout EDU – starter kit (in-person) and an online platform.
Kit (in-person) – The ECTL has three Breakout EDU kits that are available for checkout and can be used to play hundreds of games. We recommend a minimum borrowing time of 3 weeks. To borrow a kit from the ECTL, please complete this form.
