In this episode, Kelly interviews James O'Hagan, an expert in esports, a veteran teacher and administrator, and host of the Academy of Esports Podcast. James will challenge your thinking about the importance of video games in school and offer you amazing resources and direction to help you start up your school district's esports team. I love this interview with James, and I know you will too. He is brilliant! I love his thoughts on how his school's athletic director is more like an activities director, and how he lists the benefits of esports including improvements in: attendance, grades, health, becoming coachable, social media appropriateness.

An educator for 20 years, James O'Hagan has long believed that video games can promote a positive culture for students that engages creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills. He has served as an elementary, middle and high school teacher and administrator, and has worked with rural, urban and suburban students. In addition, James founded esports teams in two school districts that have blossomed into city-wide conferences.

James is a national speaker on a variety of topics involving the intersection of technology and education, and is currently completing his dissertation in the field of instructional technology at Northern Illinois University.
