Podcast – Esports Driving All Academic Achievement
Esports is the new “hook” to keep students working in other subjects despite being remote or partially physically attending schools in some sort of hybrid schedule. LeiLani Cauthen, host of the EduJedi Report Podcast, discusses the emerging ultra-significance of Esports and gaming in K12 education with Dr. Miles Harvey, 8th Grade Video Game-Based Learning and Esports Coach, Albuquerque Public Schools and Luke Stebick, Account Executive at TIG. Hear them talk about the real-life workings of student attendance and engagement because of esports, getting started as a school, and what sort of life-long opportunities are out there for students.
According to Dr. Harvey Miles, “Even before COVID, we were already about 15 years behind the ball. With Esports and games, they’re possibly the one thing that gets us to bring kids back into school with not only some excitement, but an open mindset towards some undefined learning outcomes.”
