Esports in Education: A Data-Driven Success

Acer highlighted the significant rise of Esports in education, with a remarkable 75% increase in viewership since 20201, accumulating a record 2.76 billion hours watched in 2023. This surge demonstrates Esports’ potential to revolutionize educational approaches, engaging students and cultivating skills in collaboration, creativity, and STEAM disciplines.

During a keynote speech on January 25th, titled “Level up your academic studies with Esports,” Acer, Intel, and Barnsley College shared insights into integrating Esports into academic curricula. The session focused on creating new educational and career paths, cultivating entrepreneurial skills, and promoting inclusivity and the role of women in the sector.

The Role of 3D and AI in Education

Acer delved into immersive learning within the dedicated SpatialLabs area, showcasing the SpatialLabs Experience Center Pro. This platform transforms educational approaches within Esports, allowing users to visualise and interact with complex 3D models, fostering advanced engagement and understanding.

At CES in Las Vegas earlier this month, Acer unveiled additions to its SpatialLabs stereoscopic 3D lineup: the Aspire 3D 15 SpatialLabs Edition laptop and the Predator SpatialLabs View 27 gaming monitor. These innovations bring AI-powered applications for glasses-free 3D viewing and content creation to enhance the learning experience.

Acer’s commitment to enhancing the learning experience through technology was evident with the Acer Chromebook Plus 515, empowering students with advanced AI capabilities. With features like Firefly-powered generative AI and integrated editing capabilities, students can maximize productivity and express creativity effortlessly.
