Why should I use a digital escape room?
Digital escape rooms are perfect for the classroom because they are interactive and encourage students to work together, challenging them to solve various puzzles that can either teach them something new or help reinforce what they have already learned.
Digital escape rooms require no prep from the teacher or the students, so they are easy to use instantly – and they are wonderful for both in-class use and online learning. While digital escape rooms work well to get your students to cooperate and work together, they can also be used as an independent activity.
This book digital escape room has 10 challenges (“locks”) that will have students working their way through to escape the public library they accidentally get locked in at the beginning of the challenge. Typically, these digital escape rooms take about 30 – 60 minutes to complete, depending on your students, and they are great for engaging students in social-emotional learning for grades 6, 7, and 8.
