Description

As distance learning became a reality for many schools this year, the challenges for faculty and students were great. Esports was the one extracurricular activity that could thrive off campus. But while esports had taken off in schools, many parents still did not have a real understanding of what esports is, how to address screen time, or best practices to support esports at home. The session will provide attendees with answers on some pressing issues: how to engage parents and how to provide at-home support for your scholar gamers.
