Helping students make it theirs: designing an esports club your students will love and learn from. Esports (competitive gaming) is considered by many to be the next big thing. with a global viewership of 292 million in 2016 and revenues of over $463 million. But esports can do more than entertain; it can also be leveraged as a platform for youth engagement around STEM interests plus social emotional learning. This session will show how, with an overview of a free club system that includes curriculum, learning toolkits, plus hands-on guidance, extended learning programs can create opportunities that are designed to connect youth’s passion for gaming with learning.
