Image of the Week: Breaking Out of Your Geometry Review

Studying before a test for some students is like a trip to the dentist, torturous. Designing a Breakout-styled activity where students need to apply their learning to open locks can be an engaging way to review material. Our image of the week comes to us from Venetia Ricchio.

For the next couple of weeks, we will feature an image created during our ThingLink Summer Teacher Challenge. Our hope is two-fold: first, these posts will inspire you to incorporate ThingLink’s 360/VR editor in your classroom and allow your students a chance to create with it. Secondly, we hope these posts encourage you to join in on the fun and learning. Maybe your image will be showcased!

Venetia successfully completed ThingLink’s 360 Breakout Challenge this past March. This challenge gave educators a chance to design their own digital Breakout EDU activity using ThingLink’s VR/360 editor. As an optional activity for the final week of the Summer Teacher Challenge, Venetia submitted her Geometry Final Exam Review. She stated, “This is my most popular breakout. I’ve shared it on Facebook, and many people asked me how to make it, so I wrote a blog post about it. Two people have [used] Thinglink premium, that I know of, so they could remix (soon to be called ‘Clone’) and copy it.”
