BREAKOUT was an innovative learning initiative aimed at addressing problems in offending and drug-related offending. It helps ‘at risk’ groups and offenders, particularly young offenders and offending drug users, to ‘break out’ of a vicious circle of bad experiences and low expectations of education, and hence limited life chance opportunities. Part of the BREAKOUT project involved using Web 2.0 in a North London school to get students to explore the consequences of crime and drugs. This was done by combining ICT workshops (in the school computer lab) with drama workshops.   BREAKOUT used blogs, podcasting and forum functionality on the project website.
