Session Description
Gamification is a hot trend in professional development, and it allows participants to deeply engage in learning while having a little fun, too! Come learn how one district is using the concept of escape rooms as a capstone experience for one strand of professional development. Participants can expect to engage in several mini games that will deepen their understanding of the Honeycomb Model as well as leave with ideas for how they could implement a similar structure in their own district for teachers or students!
