Event description

Description

Discover how competitive online gaming can foster mental health, wellbeing and holistic development in young people.

Riot Games, creator of global gaming hit ‘League of Legends’, is hosting a progressive 2 hour ‘Learn With League’ workshop in Brisbane, Queensland, that demonstrates how online competitive gaming, within a supported environment, can be a positive force on the digital journeys of young people.

The workshop, designed by education experts and presented in collaboration with the University Queensland, offers a unique professional development opportunity for parents and teachers who work in the educational space.

Built from clinically approved resources, the workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Our connection to play

  • Today’s digital world and online video games; how we can best utilise esports, through connection and the nature of play, to support young people

  • A supported learning environment; what does this look like and how is this best achieved?

  • What to teach young people and how can this be applied in school and in the home?

For further information and materials developed around esports and team play, check out the dedicated Learn With League site.

Stick around or come early for an hour. There will be a short seminar and Q & A with the UQ staff from 3:30 - 4:30 PM. Refreshments will be provided.

Testimonials

“This session was totally different to what I imagined. It was presented so well and could easily have been run for a pro football team. It raised so many ideas and I just wanted to bottle the entire session and bring it back to my students.” - Shawn Taggart, Hazel Glen College.

“The workshop approach can definitely be integrated in the staffroom with my coworkers but more importantly in classrooms.” - Tracy Ge, Bass High School.
