According to a recent survey by HyperX, more than half of children think gaming should be incorporated into school curriculums. Furthermore, children would also like to see esports extra-curricular activities brought to their schools.
A survey of 13 to 18-year-olds found that 55% of young people believe gaming is a path to a future career. On top of this, 40% of parents surveyed believe gaming could provide a path to a future career.
“Children understand how vast and exciting the gaming industry is. Our children engage with drama and music at school, why not video gaming,” asked Dr. Dieter Declercq, a lecturer in film and media studies at the University of Kent. “Indeed, our research shows that half of children consider e-sports a real sport and 70% of parents think gaming is a way to improve skills like problem-solving, multi-tasking, and decision making.”
This survey was carried out by gaming accessories firm HyperX. The company was founded in 2002 and currently operates out of Fountain Valley, California.
