When my students begin, what will they experience?

By clicking on “VIEW 360°” the digital escape room opens. There is a “heartbeat,” sound effect in the background as well as video clips to view, so be sure their volume is on. By hovering over each icon in the escape room, you will see messages appear.

Digital Escape Room Tip for Teachers:

If you are struggling for classroom space, there are areas in the building you can take your students. The school media center might have table space and “pods” where students can comfortably work together. The media center (or library) can also offer different meeting rooms for you to take advantage of.

Teachers: PLEASE CHECK YOUR DISTRICT’S FILTER. You will need access to Google Sites,, ScreenCastOMatic video server, Google Forms, Google Slides, and Google Earth. I cannot fix any issues for you. Before purchasing, please check to ensure you will be able to use these sites. ALL firewall issues that occur are on your end in your school/district restrictions. It is your responsibility to ensure the links will work prior to your purchase. -Feedback left for tech issues are solely on the buyer’s merit and do not reflect the function of the classroom escape room.
