OLC Accelerate's 2021 Escape Room
Workshop Session 1 & 2 (combined)
Think you’ve got what it takes to solve your way out of a sticky situation? Well then jump right in and put your mad skills to the test in this session of supreme fun. You’ll have only 30 minutes to solve your way out of this conundrum. You ready?
In the spirit of constructivist learning, the Technology Test Kitchen will feature an EdTech themed Escape Room event!
For those conference attendees who are looking for something exciting and adventurous, we invite you to join others in completing OLC Accelerate’s 2021 Escape Room (#OLCEscapeRoom) – a fun challenge and puzzle-based experience that unites participants around collaboration and strategy. Participants will have the option to choose between four 30-minute time slots, which run between 8:30am -11:30am.
Escape Rooms are collaborative experiences where participants work together to solve a series of puzzles, challenges, riddles, or mysteries using clues, hints, and intentional strategy. They often feature a specific theme and a particular set of objectives that require participants to work as a team if they hope to complete the challenge in time.
The OLC Escape Room will allow conference participants a fun and unique space to not only engage with a variety of educational technologies, but do so in a themed, challenge-based environment with others. Challenges might include finding a hidden code within a database to unlock a presentation, navigating through a virtual or augmented reality to receive your next clue, using distance-learning technologies to communicate with your teammates, or completing a circuit to turn on a device, among others. That said, they will all be fun, practical, and representative of the types of teaching and learning challenges that educators face in their day-to-day lives.
And if an opportunity for some fun and collaborative learning wasn’t enough, each member of the winning team (max 10 members per team) will receive a $25 OLC gift card and some fun OLC swag!
You can plan to join us as an individual, pair, or part of an existing group - all are welcome. We have a limited number of spots available - so make sure to plan early!
