BREAKOUTEDU ACTIVITY @ 8/4/17 Staff In-Service
Team-building; explore new technology resources
Mission & Directions:
Teachers report to the library and receive a card from a playing deck upon entering.
Breakfast is served, but only bottles of water and coffee are provided beverages.
When ready to begin, the library lights dim and a video begins to play, which explains that the water they have been drinking has been bottled at Wyle Labs and they have been infected with a deadly virus. The only way to find the cure is to work as a team to go on a mission to finding the cure.
Teams: Teachers will break up into teams based on the card they received upon entering the gym. All of one kind and same backing group to form a team of 4. Once formed, they find any student (standing at perimeter of room) to report to. Students will guide the team to a classroom (only they have the key)
