“After a successful League of Legends tournament run in 2017, driven by Liverpool Boys High School and Kirrawee High School, the Powerhouse Museum is continuing League of Legends learning opportunities in 2018 which brings to life the learning materials from the High School League of Legends Clubs initiative.
The day consists of multiple League of Legends matches interspersed with team debriefs, educating on productive online behaviour through the values of sportsmanship. This is an opportunity for learners to enhance their understanding of the values of sportsmanship and teamwork through problem solving, learner led reflection and group discussions.”
The workshop also included a small one day tournament, where our students had a chance to compete against the other two schools. Out of 15 teams our two Bass eSports team, of course, took home 1st and 3rd place. Our other team who were completely new to the game fought through hard and took 4th, 5th and 7th place.
Both Ali and I were very proud of our students and how positively they behaved on the day. Even when students had lost a game they had a great smile on their faces and took the initiative to shake hands with the winning teams. All our teams had great communication in game which was a great way for the students to bond and understand each other more. Definitely would participate in this workshop again if we had another chance this year.
