Many parents and educators stand conflicted on whether or not they should embrace Esports. I think it is important to look at the Interest Driven Learning approach. Where do young people who have a passion and want to follow it through to a deep conclusion–where would they do that in our environment? And how could we coach them, support them, mentor them, create an environment for them to go deep with something that they really care about? Most kids have an interest, but they don’t have that driving passion that is going to just make them go wild on their own, and build their own learning pathways. Most kids need much more adult scaffolds, supports, institutional invitations, and connections in order to connect the interests that they do have to opportunities and trajectories of learning that will really serve them in their adult life. Here at SPIN we look at all avenues gamers can pursue collegiately and in life. We know that if the child truly is passionate about it, he or she can accomplish anything.
