Wacey Tobler, Secondary Digital Learning Coach, Fort Sam Houston ISDGAMES IN K-6, 7-12
This session will highlight the journey & experiences of the Fort Sam Houston ISD HS Esports club, which was founded in the middle of COVID in 2020. Attendees will learn about the SEL potential of Esports as well as hear from a student panel about their ideas, reflections, successes, and failures in building a new community around Esports for our high school.
In addition to an overview of our program, attendees will benefit from hearing first-hand from a group of high school students (through a virtual student panel) who are building a ground-up Esports program at their school by highlighting the community-focus of the club. These students make up our officer staff and have roles specific to real-world jobs within the profession of Esports (tournament, media, streaming, and community managers as well as the President and Vice President).
