Use These Templates to Make Your Own Digital Breakouts!

Author’s note: This post is intended to help teachers make Digital Breakouts in Classic Google Sites. The New Google Sites has gone live. Please read my blog post about making Digit Breakouts in New Google Sites. Additionally, please read my post comparing the classic and new versions of Google Sites.

Digital Breakouts, the entirely online offshoot of the BreakoutEDU movement, are a great way to help students fall in love with problem-solving. I make and use them, as do my colleagues who have found innovative ways to incorporate them into instruction.

Recently, I have had colleagues and educators on social media tell me they would like to make digital breakouts but the task seems daunting. One colleague asked me to build a template website to help him get started.

So here it is – a Digital Breakout template website, a replicable Google Site template, and a Google Folder with template files. Makes copies of them and have at it! The website is a Digital Breakout itself. Go through it to see how they work.

The site demonstrates some great tools for digital breakouts: Google Forms with Quiz Mode enabled for feedback, Quizlet, EdPuzzle, and Thinglink.

Comment below or send me a tweet @edtechtom with questions.

All Digital Breakouts I make are inspired by the innovators behind BreakoutEDU,  James Sanders and Mark Hammons, as well as by the creators of Digital BreakoutEDU,  Justin Birckbichler and Mari Venturino.
