BreakoutEDU

Breakout EDU takes the idea behind Escape Rooms and creates ultra-engaging learning games for students to demonstrate the core competencies of the new curriculum. Games (Breakouts) teach teamwork, problem solving, critical thinking, and troubleshooting by presenting participants with challenges that ignite their natural drive to problem-solve. At the end of a Breakout, your students will be eager for the next! Specialty K-12 Breakouts can be used to teach core academic subjects including math, science, history, language arts and have embedded standards that apply problem solving strategies within a real world OR collaborative context. Participants will be taking part in a Breakout puzzle followed by a discussion on how it can be used in classrooms.

Angela Marcakis

I am currently a grade 6/7 teacher at Creekside Elementary. have been teaching in Surrey since 2011, mostly in upper intermediate classrooms. In 2015, I began a two year graduate diploma program at Simon Fraser University focusing on Inquiry and Technology. While teaching, I love the connections I make with my students, integrating technology, and keeping my lessons interactive and FUN! I love learning and connecting with other passionate educators in our district. I also love connecting and sharing with educators globally through Twitter and Facebook. @MissMarcakis
