Blended Breakouts for Every Learner

Audiences: 3 - 5 Teachers , 6 - 8 Teachers , ES School Leaders , MS School Leaders
Levels: Beginner , Intermediate

Session Description

Blended Breakouts are an amazing way to combine tech with hands-on problem solving. Breakouts allow students to collaborate, think critically, be creative, and communicate effectively as a group. Students will leave your classroom begging for more!

This session will walk teachers, coaches, and administrators through building and implementing a Blended Breakout -- essentially a logistically easier version of a Breakout EDU. We will discuss key components and explore different tech tools to make them fun and engaging. We will deliver session information using Nearpod to promote an active learning experience. Attendees will leave the session with the tools and confidence to implement a Blended Breakout when they return to their school.
