Educational escape rooms have become all the rage lately. To make it out of the “room” students need to work as a team. The qualities of a successful team consist of engagement, team-building, problem-solving, respect, and intrinsic motivation. This session will demonstrate how to incorporate technology when creating an educational escape room. Participants will learn the basic materials and setup needed for an escape room. Additionally, participants will be introduced to a variety of apps, websites, and hands on technology that can be incorporated in the experience. In addition, session attendees will learn best practices and pitfalls to avoid when they are designing their own escape room activity for their students. Finally, the participants of the session will take part in a culminating escape room activity that will incorporate the different equipment, applications, and technology discussed during the session. The activity will demonstrate what new knowledge attendees will be able to bring back to their building after attending the session.
