Game On! Esports at your School

Wed. April 26, 2023 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

You’ve heard about it in the news. Your students have been begging for it. Now it’s time to finally pick up the controller and hit “start” on your district’s esports program. But what are you supposed to do if you’re starting at Level 1?

Join the LTC’s Eric Santos for a primer on kickstarting an esports program in your district. This session will focus in on the background knowledge needed to initiate a successful esports program, including:

– Esports’ benefits to students
– Game and league options
– Current trends in esports
– Coaching tips and strategies
– Hardware/software needs and recommendations
– Streaming and broadcasting options
– Potential costs
– Networking with schools with flourishing esports programs

This session will cover information relevant to elementary, middle, and high school program, too, so all teachers and administrators curious about esports in education are encouraged to attend. No gaming experience required!

Already have a fledgling esports program in your district? Join us for the opportunity to share your experiences and learn the latest best practices for maintaining a successful program across multiple grade levels.
