Participants will take a trip to a "puzzle room," where we will collaboratively solve a series of puzzles in order to escape! Once back, we will unpack and hack the experience to co-design our own.
Trapped in classrooms where only boring lectures and rote memorization are occurring, many students dream of escape... But what if the very act of escaping from a classroom became an opportunity for all sorts of deeper learning? In this summit, we will take a trip to a "puzzle room," where we will have a limited amount of time to collaboratively solve a series of puzzles in order to escape! After that experience, we will hack the puzzle room experience and explore how to use available materials and space in our schools to create similar collaborative, problem solving experiences for our students! No more boring classrooms!
