NCompass Live: Esports and Evidence-Based Connected Learning

Learn how to start your high school esports club with ‘Esports and Evidence-Based Connected Learning’ on this week’s FREE NCompass Live webinar, on Wednesday, December 9 at 10am CT.

Esports is the competitive wing of electronic gaming which is experiencing explosive growth around the world. This session is designed to provide the resources libraries need to meet young people where they are with an interest-driven learning environment. The learning ecosystem encompasses a variety of roles beyond the players, such as videographers, graphic designers, and writers. Two rural librarians and the North America Scholastic Esports Federation (NASEF) will position you to create a successful program.

Presenters: Kevin Brown, esports Program Specialist, Orange County (CA) Dept. of Educ./NASEF; Dianne Connery, Director, Pottsboro (TX) Area Library; Tyler Hahn, Youth and Special Services Librarian, Cherokee (IA) Public Library.
