San Fransisco Chronicle- GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — With public school classes starting in Gillette, local teachers found time to reach out to colleagues across the state.
Three local teachers designed their own escape room game to puzzle participants at the Wyoming Roadmap to STEAM Conference in Gillette.
They directed about 30 other teachers and technology educators in the use of intrigue to encourage student learning, engagement and excitement in the classroom this year.
Teachers using escape rooms as learning tools? We are in. Every teacher is amazingly creative, and this is just the latest example of that.
These awesome people came up with a couple of escape room scenarios. The article from the San Francisco Chronicle states that the escape room themes they have created go around different subjects. One escape room they created mirrored the Oregon Trail.
Who else thinks this is a great idea to help students learn? We are particularly in love with this creative idea!
