I have been hearing about Breakout Edu for a while now but it took me going to a conference workshop on the topic to get HOOKED!  Breakout Edu is the educational version of the breakout rooms you may have heard about in larger cities around the US.  The difference is it is on a smaller, more portable scale where participants can break into a series of locked boxes. This activity is a great teamwork activity but also allows for a great learning experience for websites, images, articles and various other artifacts can be used to help the participants break into the boxes using codes and various other tactics.

I have been working with a colleague to create some of these experiences for teachers and students in schools but also plan to create some for businesses based around teamwork.  This would be a great team building tool for businesses/groups to use to help their folks get to know each other better. More on this coming soon.
