Phase 1: Literature Review
Phase 2: Pilot Study
The research is a convergent, mixed methods pilot study which will involve a focus on:
- Reasons for taking part in eSports (both individually and as a school/community),
- Perceived outcomes for the children and young people who participated, and
- Awareness and reception to the eSports initiative within the broader school community.
- Children and young people's experiences, aspirations, attitudes and behaviours in relation to eSports.
Interviews, surveys and focus groups will be employed with teachers/coaches; student gamers; their peers; and the broader school community.
