What is LoL?

League of Legends (LoL) is a five versus five co-operative team game where players – who choose unique champions with different abilities – are required to work together to capture objectives, outsmart the opposition and win the game. League of Legends taps into competitive and social fundamentals of human nature and, alongside a LoL club, can be utilised to teach online etiquette and sportsmanship through a relevant mechanism that is already engaging to students.

    The LoL Clubs initiative [is] both brilliant and logical. What I mean is, think about how tough it would be to teach swimming without a pool. High School League of Legends Clubs give schools the opportunity to facilitate digital citizenship in digital environments, the only kind of place where it could ever really be practised.

    It has been fantastic to watch the parallels between how students work together in the game and transfer these understandings into their broader school experience

    The work Riot Games is doing to promote sportsmanship through schools and gaming clubs is critically important as we try to help a generation grow up online.
