Facts & Figures
Games & Education
Across the world, educators are increasingly becoming interested in the potential role of computer and video games to support young people’s learning. Recent studies show that while playing games children are invariably engaged in learning activities that are much more complex and challenging than most of their formal school tasks.
Even games with no educational intent require players to learn a great deal. Games are complex adaptive and force players to develop a huge number of skills. Researchers have documented numerous benefits from play including raising a child’s socio-emotional, cognitive and physical development, as well as honing fine and gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, creativity, attention and problem-solving mechanics to name but a few.
Social interaction
People often think that gaming is a solitary activity. The reality can be very different. Playing video games is an increasingly social activity, as most consoles have now multi-player capabilities. Two to four players can play together on one console but more and more games allow players to interact with others online and, consequently, the number of Internet gaming communities is rising rapidly. The social interaction of these games can help bring players together.
