Keeping Students Connected Through Esports: Building Community and Culture in Virtual and Hybrid Learning Environments
Esports provides a perfect opportunity for students to build community and friendships, play, and learn in a hybrid model or even completely virtually. In this session, we’ll provide guidance to schools and CBOs on how they can plan for an uncertain school year ahead which may include traditional face-to-face, hybrid, and virtual club interactions. You’ll also hear how esports are a great way to support Social Emotional Learning, and develop important career skills.
