Youth Esports Open Day
On April 13th at Curtin Stadium, Flaktest held the second Youth Esports Open Day event. The event was a huge success, catering to young Fortnite fans and offering the opportunity for parents to experience the vibrant community of youth esports at Flaktest.
If you missed out on the event, Flaktest will be hosting open days frequently throughout the year. Stay tuned for the next Youth Esports Open Day happening soon in your city!
Recap: Preparing kids for their first match
It’s not unusual for your students to be feeling uncertain of what to expect for their first match. The excitement of sharing their skill openly leaves them vulnerable and it is important to recognise that this is a significant step in their lives.
The first lesson they will complete for their tournament is: Week 1 – Setting goals, training schedules. The lesson will unlock on Monday 29th of April and will ask the students several questions around setting goals for themselves, their friends and their school and families. The goal of the first week is about being brave, facing their vulnerabilities and setting goals that matter to themselves and others.
Each week students will be asked to complete each lesson as this will build into a personal report for them and the school. Further information on how the report can be used to assess students and as a diagnostic tool will be available next week!
We will be sending across more information regarding the first weeks lesson, including objectives and teacher guides to help deliver information to your students.
And that’s a wrap for the week! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We hope you have a safe and enjoyable Easter holidays.
