Authentic SEL Through Esports
Scholastic esports provides an authentic space for meaningful social-emotional learning, including the application of diversity and inclusion practices while building community. Educators from NASEF will discuss how to build a K-12 esports program that builds social-emotional attributes such as communication, collaboration, and problem-solving abilities while developing career-focused STEAM skills. Not just sharing theories, panelists are educators who are actively leveraging esports in their classes and afterschool programs.
