Trapped! Can you escape WGTE? Try the following digital escape room! Communication, collaboration, problem solving and perseverance are combined with your subject matter when you create a digital escape room for your classroom. Digital escape rooms provide students with a story based activity that allows your students to interact with the material in a different way. Students progress through the story at their own pace solving puzzles along the way to escape at the end. Escape rooms can be used to introduce a topic, to practice a skill, to reteach material, or as a review activity. Do you want to learn how to create one of your own? Contact us to schedule a session!
