Revolutionising Scholastic Esports

We’re thrilled to announce the official launch of I-Atea, a ground breaking platform at the forefront of scholastic esports in New Zealand. I-Atea is set to transform how esports is perceived and integrated within educational settings, offering a unique blend of competitive gaming and educational enrichment. As we prepare for our launch, we invite schools, educators, and students to join us on this exciting journey.

Esports has rapidly evolved from a niche hobby to a global phenomenon, and its potential within education is immense. Recognising this, I-Atea aims to harness the power of esports to foster engagement, teamwork, and learning among students. Our mission is to create an environment where gaming goes hand in hand with educational outcomes, preparing students not just for the digital age but for future careers in technology, media, and beyond.

Why Esports in Education?

The integration of esports into the educational framework offers numerous benefits. Studies have shown that students involved in esports demonstrate improved concentration, problem-solving skills, and teamwork. Esports also opens up new pathways for students interested in STEM fields, game design, and digital media, providing practical experience in a team-based setting.


Upcoming Leagues and Events:

I-Atea is not just about competition; it’s about community, learning, and growth. We’re launching several leagues, including NKAI for Kura Kaupapa, PIES League for primary and intermediate schools, and HSESL for high schools, each designed to cater to the unique needs and interests of its participants. These leagues will serve as platforms for students to showcase their skills, engage in healthy competition, and connect with peers who share their passions.

In addition to the leagues, I-Atea will host workshops, seminars, and events aimed at promoting digital literacy, teamwork, and leadership among students. Our inaugural event, set to take place later this year, will feature guest speakers from the esports industry, educational workshops, and, of course, exciting tournaments.

A Call to Action:

As we gear up for an exciting year ahead, we extend an invitation to schools across New Zealand to become part of this pioneering initiative. Whether you’re an educator looking to introduce esports into your curriculum, a student eager to take your gaming to the next level, or a school interested in exploring new extracurricular opportunities, I-Atea is your gateway to the world of scholastic esports.
