How Educational Games Affect Children?

18 Feb

Nowadays, children usually spend most of their time playing video games or watching television especially when out of school. This seems to be some form of recreation to enjoy. But what most parents and educators don’t realize is the value of including educational games in classes. This can be fun and exciting as they learn many new things.

Games like learning the alphabet and counting numbers are now available for very young children. They may also choose to play more advanced educational games such as mathematics, reading and language. For older children, they can choose online courses where games are included for easy learning.

With the current technology and trends, most children are satisfied to see games played while learning lessons. A larger percentage of teachers find using educational video games have helped improved learning of children. They feel at ease with the current technology; where it makes them stay on top especially in class. These games improve the motor control and hand-eye coordination of kids as well.

If you get to choose the right games for kids, these may change their outlook. They turn to be helpful and friendly to others. They get to retain more knowledge in school. This will also increase comprehension of instructions, and make them gather helpful information. Studies show children who get to play educational games are those who never develop attention problems in school.

Few parents don’t agree to have kids spending more time playing video games at school. But if these games help them perform well and improve their studies, why should they stop kids from enjoying.

    Amazing educational app for kids to learn everyday basic words that will give them a head start in speaking and reading fluently.
    This app will not only teach words but also foster thinking and understanding of young minds. Everyday they will learn new words and be able to recognize objects through pictures, text and the places where they are found. The places included in the app are bedroom, bathroom and many more.
    The child friendly voice over, sounds of applause, cheerful music and encouraging remarks like ‘superb’ and ‘very good’, will ensure a very positive learning experience for them. here is the link of game: http://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Nimble+Minds&hl=en
