Educational Programs Built Around Video Games
Video games have a unique was of engaging players that allows for a deeper and richer learning experience when presented in the right manner. In addition, esport and video game clubs at schools typically reach an audience that typically doesn’t participate in extra-curricular activities.
Our programs have been structured to deliver a wide range of specific skills and competencies at middle, high-school and post-secondary levels.
Education Through Play
Our program focuses on using play and video games to teach core STEM skills in a fun and interactive way. We set goals with the students and give homework using video games to spark a joy and interest in learning and study.
Alignment with Curriculum / Specialization
Our programs and teaching methods are developed by teachers and professors and are aligned to mathematics and literacy curricula at the elementary and secondary school levels, and aligned to broadcasting and game design curricula at the post-secondary level. We also build custom programs where required drawing from our inventory of skill specific components.
Growth and Health
Our programs focus not only on improving video game skills, and skills through video game play, but also on physical and mental health. Players learn nutrition, stress management, and teamwork through the medium of video games.
Job Ready Skills
Our program teaches skills employers prioritize in the modern job market. With a focus on skills training such as teamwork, task management, listening, and critical thinking, we train youth to be ready for careers, whether they end up in esports careers or not. Our program doesn’t focus on play alone and takes a look at the industry as a whole, which means if you want to get into a career as a manager, caster, or pro player, we make sure you know what you need to succeed.
