TORONTO, ONTARIO – (January 12, 2023) – Schoolio is excited to announce a new partnership with AoE E-Sports, a provider of competitive gaming programs for kids and teenagers. As part of the partnership, Schoolio will be providing social-emotional learning resources to AoE E-Sports teams. This partnership will focus on providing education on healthy habits, sportsmanship, teamwork, leadership skills, and emotional regulation strategies for the players at AoE E-Sports. With the explosive growth of e-sports, it is essential to provide this education to help players develop into well-rounded individuals. Schoolio is proud to be partnering with AOE Esports to help further that goal.
The National Education Association recently described the rise in popularity of e-sports as “explosive growth”, with potential for university scholarships and future earnings skyrocketing across North America. E-sports offer an opportunity for rewards and financial success much like other professional sports, with million-dollar player salaries, prize pools reaching 40 million dollars, and world tournaments that garner global attention. As e-sports continue to grow, it is essential to teach and foster healthy habits, sportsmanship, teamwork, leadership skills, and emotional regulation strategies just with like any traditional team sport. To this end, Schoolio is thrilled to provide their Social-Emotional Learning program to all players at AoE E-Sports.
Social-emotional learning is a critical part of child development, with recent studies naming emotional intelligence as the number one indicator of adulthood success. It can be effectively taught through the lens of competitive gaming, providing more relevance and real-world application in the minds of the players. AoE E-Sports is committed to providing the best possible experience for their players, including creating an inclusive and safe space for all players, and developing the player as a whole person. Schoolio is proud to be partnering with them to help further that goal.
