What are esports and who can participate in the gaming industry? What skills do gaming professionals have and how can young students today develop those competencies to enter into this exciting industry? How can the Georgia Department of Education’s (GDoE) Esports Standards be integrated into a variety of subjects taught in K-12 schools and extracurricular programing?

Esports Teacher Training – FREE to Georgia’s K-12 Educators!

The Georgia Film Academy is thrilled to announce our inaugural Esports Teacher Training! Designed for new and current scholastic esports programs, this one-day FREE workshop will provide valuable insights to kickstart a new program or take your existing one to the next level. Our focus for the day is to discuss applying the approved GaDOE standards for Esports Course 11.08000. We'll achieve this through a combination of engaging discussions and hands-on experiences, including:

  • Lay a foundation by diving into the history of esports
  • Explore career opportunities for students beyond being competitors
  • Discuss esports in the classroom and adoption of ES 11.08000
  • Discuss the need-to-know to compete in the official GHSA High School Esports League

Hands-on with Production, Casting, Competing

But those are just the start – this unique and immersive workshop is designed to give you a firsthand understanding of organizing and hosting events by putting you in the shoes of your students as you experience the excitement leading up to and on game day.

We will get hands-on with planning, commentating, producing, and competing in our very own esports tournament. During this exercise, you will be introduced to the roles and equipment associated with live stream and event production, team organization, program development, and how it all connects to the curriculum associated with the esports class.

Free to Georgia’s K-12 educators

Thanks to a grant from the Georgia Foundation for Public Education - we are able to provide this workshop at no cost to Georgia’s K-12 educators who are interested in implementing esports at their schools. Spaces are limited so register today to save your spot!

Made Possible Through Collaboration

This training is made possible due to collaborative efforts between the Georgia Film Academy, GA Department of Education, Georgia Foundation for Public Education, NASEF (Network of Academic and Scholastic Esports Federations), Skillshot Media, and Ghost Gaming.
