“Where’s Indy?” is the first in a series of virtual reality (VR) educational escape rooms (EscapED).
This revolutionary role-playing game (RPG) pits student avatars against the villainous S-Quad as they search for Indiana Royster, journalist and truth-sleuth extraordinaire. Hidden clues help players complete critical thinking tasks as they attempt to find Indy before the S-Quad silences him forever.
What will students learn?
In addition to gaining 21st Century, Social Emotional Learning (SEL), Common Core, and Bloom’s higher-order thinking skills, EscapED players build resilience as they persist through challenges and failures in pursuit of a larger goal. As they move from room to room, players also unwittingly teach themselves a variety of success strategies as they collaborate with other avatars and develop pointed questions for the resident expert Bot, Angela. Further, students learn about the intersecting and overlapping nature of concepts through interactive content webs.
Will there be other products?
Our premier EscapED experience (EscapEDX) is set in the Middle East, and we are building rooms for Africa, Southeast Asia, and Western Europe so that the search for Indy may continue throughout the world. In addition, we are creating a special EscapEDX to develop “truth-sleuthing” skills to help them navigate our Fake News-fraught media universe in search of reliable information. We believe that game-based instruction provides the best means to imbue learners with the skills and tenacity they need to lead successful lives.
