Gaming Concepts: Streaming – Transforming Public Speaking with Esports and Digital Media Mastery


Gaming Concepts: Streaming takes the pain out of Public Speaking classes.

Similar to a traditional Public Speaking course, Gaming Concepts: Streaming teaches students how to initiate and participate in collaborative discussions, respond thoughtfully to diverse perspectives, evaluate a speaker’s point of view, research and integrate multiple sources of information into a presentation, utilize digital media in presentations and much more.

"[Gaming Concepts] is a way to start a conversation that kids want to be involved in. They want to be involved with games. They want to be engaged with it. They are collaborating with people who they might never have talked to before. They are working on themselves. They are working on really evaluating their own performance within a team and looking at those other roles besides being a player."
