What is the potential impact of BreakoutEDU in Primary Education?

I am currently in the throws of a collaborative literature review with Emily Bagrie, a fellow Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Practice (Digital and Collaborative Learning) student at The Mindlab.  

While we started reading the available literature to identify emerging themes and contexts, we have now refined our research question to What is the potential educational impact of immersive participatory simulation games in primary education?

As I continue to add to my growing bank of Coggles, designed to help summarize each article, I realised I am sitting on a bank of research that may help others either now or in future studies.  These are likely to be of particular interest to those using key terms such as:

  • Education
  • Learning
  • Gaming Methodology
  • BreakoutEDU
  • Escape Rooms
  • Live Action Role Play (LARP)
  • Role Playing Games (RPG)
  • Edu-larp
  • Immersive Games
  • Participatory Games
  • Immersive Participatory Games
