Technology Test Kitchen: Escape Room Event

Brief Abstract

***New for 2018!***

In the spirit of constructivist learning, the Technology Test Kitchen will feature an EdTech themed Escape Room event this year!

Escape Rooms (also referred to as Escape Games) are challenges where participants collaborate to solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Sound familiar?

Test Kitchen Escape Room participants will be brought into our mini kitchen spaces in small groups, and given a set amount of time to unveil and solve the teaching and learning challenge.

The Escape Room challenges may include noticing something obvious in a virtual reality classroom, using video technology to capture a teaching moment, exploring course data to find an outlier, searching for hidden messages in library search results, using chatbot technology to communicate with other faculty, identifying patterns in research results, decoding student handwriting, and others.

We invite you to join in the Escape Room fun Friday morning (9:45am-12:30pm, Northern Hemisphere D), and try your hand at collaborating on solving the online learning related puzzles that the Test Kitchen chefs design.

Note:  The Escape Room will be located in Northern Hemisphere D (Friday morning only).  Join anytime between 9:45am and 12:30pm.

Each member of the winning team (max 10 members per team) will receive a $25 OLC gift card and an OLC T-shirt!
