Thank you for joining us for #whatisschool this week as we discussed BreakoutEDU and what it has to offer to educators. Not only did we discuss it as a tool for learning but we also explored how to engage students in learning and encourage curiosity and problem solving. I wanted to shout out a special thank you to Nick Brierley for leading our learning –he is a legend who I have had the pleasure of meeting both online and face to face – so inspiring!
The #whatisschool community showed their passion for learning today and their passion for the teaching profession by sharing their ideas and experiences about engagement! This archive is packed full of incredible ideas, practical uses, and resources guaranteed to inspire you, so share with your colleagues.
