We’re thrilled to release part 1 of ‘On the road to victory’, a three-part series exploring each knockout event of the DSH esports tournament from the perspective of our participating students, teachers and industry.
Yesterday, the DSH team invited industry professionals along to Ukie HQ for our esports open evening. As well as touching base with some great industry folk, we wanted to showcase the way we bridge the gap between education and industry - and show our industry friends exactly how they can get involved in supporting the tournament.
Yesterday saw the Houses of Parliament opening its doors and welcoming UK esports onto its premises for the first time ever. In partnership with Intel, Digital Schoolhouse, and the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Video Games, Ukie led the event enabling Members of Parliament to join esports businesses, sports organisations and brands to learn of the scale of esports in the UK.
Ukie's Digital Schoolhouse (DSH) is proud to be adding another report - and the first-of-its-kind - to it's growing portfolio of research. ‘Esports: Engaging Education’ proves that there’s a valuable place for esports in education; paving the way for the adoption of esports in UK schools and further afield.
