Questions and Answers:
Q: What is a digital escape room?
A: Students use a google homepage to read the rules and begin the escape room. Once inside they are immersed in a 360° version of Da Vinci's studio where they will solve clues to become Da Vinci's next great apprentice. There is a digital locks form where they will enter the answers to each puzzle and a google slides sheet for them to take notes. The notes sheet can be turned into you via google.
Q: What will my students learn?
A: They will: watch a biographical video on Da Vinci and answer questions to complete a Caesar Cipher, learn about mirror writing and solve a word problem, discover the many inventions that Da Vinci sketched and what they became, view an interactive sketchbook with audio clips and solve a puzzle using the Mona Lisa. Finally, students will create a sketch using annotations and different perspectives just like Da Vinci.
Q: Is there nudity within the escape room?
A: Good Question. Take a look at the preview video and you will get a good idea of what students will see. Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man is actually a nude, but it is such an iconic image that most students are already familiar with the image. There is also a link to in one of the clues, and although the sketch that involves the clue is only a man's neck, there are other sketches that may contain nudity.
