Over the last few years the gaming and esports industry has taken off at a rapid pace. It is now coming over to the schools and districts. The diverse panelists in this discussion will answer your questions about why esports and gaming in schools are important, what is esports (and what is not) and its purpose,  who is involved, and when and how do I get started. The panelist will address misconceptions and successes students will and can have with esports and gaming in schools.
