"Beyond Super" Teacher Spotlight - Melinda Bolles, Richland Middle School

Mrs. Bolles, 8th Grade Social Studies teacher, is rethinking learning and being "Beyond Super" by designing new learning opportunities like Breakout EDU. Not only is Breakout EDU fun, but it really ramps up students' critical thinking! Learning via a Breakout EDU is taking students' learning about history to a much deeper level.

Click here to go to the Digital Learning Lounge blog to read about Mrs. Bolles Breakout EDU experience and her thoughts about students' learning.


Want help finding a Breakout EDU or designing one yourself?
