Distraction? Education! Esports as a learning tool

Connecting kids’ passion for play with learning is the “magic sauce.” North America Scholastic Esports Federation sees value in video games beyond play alone and offers the only fully credentialed, state-approved curriculum that intertwines esports and education. The panel will share firsthand experiences and research to demonstrate how students found a new passion for learning, and how the esports ecosystem can be leveraged in clubs or classes to teach foundational STEM, ELA and SEL skills.
