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 Holly Kelly and Eric Santos for a primer on kickstarting an esports program in your district. This 1-hour session will focus in on the background knowledge needed to start a successful esports program, including: current trends in esports, hardware/software needs and recommendations, game and league options, coaching tips, potential costs, and more! 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.
After this webinar you will be able to:
* Explain the value of esports to all stakeholders in your district and build a case for starting a program;
* Determine the best platform, game(s), format, and partners for your esports program;
* Develop plans to successfully launch and manage an esports initiative
Illinois educators who attend live can earn 1.0 PD credit.
