One of the most challenging things about designing lessons include the struggle of engaging students in review. I cannot tell you how many times I have given a study guide and less than half of a class would complete it. However, with Digital Breakouts, it gives the students opportunities to review the content they have learned, or even new content), by collaboration, discourse, and challenges. Even with virtual learning, these can be completed through Google Meet's Breakout Rooms!
To create a Digital Breakout, we will use 2 main things: a Google Form and a Google Site. Other resources can be brought in for clues.
We will begin this session by participating in a Digital Breakout so the viewers can experience it from a students' point of view. I also have communities, templates, and planning-guides readily available for participants.
