Happy New Year – Digital Breakouts

Happy New Year!

I am excited to begin this new year. Out with the old, in with the new! Do you ever do the one-word challenge? The one-word challenge is where you choose one word to focus on in the new year. It provides clarity and creates a vision for the future.

My one word is action! I plan to take action this year. Planning is all good until you get swamped down with the details. I want to take more risk this year; throw myself out there and see what might happen. 

What’s your one word? How can you tie it into your resolutions for the new year, if you make them? 

One action I plan to take is to share my love of digital breakouts! If you have not heard of digital breakouts or digital escape rooms, check out a previous post that I wrote. If you are familiar with them, you know that digital breakouts provide students the opportunity to work in a group setting to hone those collaboration and communication skills. Digital breakouts also provide students authentic tasks that require problem-solving and critical thinking. Digital breakouts are such an engaging way to build those career-ready skills. And the best part, all K-5 students can participate in digital breakouts.

For the New Year, I created two Happy New Year Digital Breakouts, one for K-2 and one for 3-5. Each breakout provides students clues to solve to “breakout!”

Again Happy New Year and Happy Teaching!
