Mrs. M from Washington DC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a monitor for our new esport class at our high school.
We are offering a new esport class at our high school. New classroom equipment is required for this class. We are looking to add new gaming monitors and new gaming computers, keyboards, headsets, etc. Esports is a new competitive sport sweeping the country. High School Esports athlete numbers are rapidly growing, with many looking for a career in the gaming industry. Consistency lies within the Esports community, giving its students a sense of unity and a sense of belonging. This is something I am striving to bring to my local high school. This is a great opportunity to open up new doors for my students not only in looking at an interesting career but also at college scholarships. Many colleges are now offering scholarships in gaming. I am looking forward to being able to help my students prepare for a better future through esports.
Teens are all about gaming.
In 2018, the Pew Research Center reported that 97% of teen boys and 83% of teen girls played video games. Some of these teens are involved in school sports and clubs. Many, however, are not. By offering esports as an extracurricular activity, schools reach students who often are otherwise disengaged from the school community. Esports in schools can transport these kids from the solitary world of digital gaming into the common space of the school computer lab or library commons. These otherwise uninvolved students join the ranks of their successfully involved peers: More likely to be engaged during classes. More likely to graduate. More likely to aspire to higher education. And less likely to suffer and spread the harms of feeling out of sync with their school community.
