The main concern of this infographic is to demonstrate how games are important for the learning of little children. Little children grow up in an environment where an atmosphere of technology is maintained by the continuous use of gadgets and other electronic devices.
The fundamental question, “why games should be added in the educational system?” can be answered in different ways. First of all, it can be argued that children are familiar with the games even from very early age, and thus these games can be far more useful for learning than the traditional syllabus book which children know nothing about. This question can also be answered by explaining the perspective that children love to play games.
There are different ways in which games help children to learn, and the scientific explanation of this is the recent research conducted by Paul Howard Jones, a neuroscientist. According to him, games are important because they increase the level of dopamine in your brain.
Since dopamine is associated with the creativity; its higher amount in the brain will boost creativity. Another important benefit of dopamine is that it creates and strengthens connections between different brain cells. Since we learn by the associative functioning of our memory, we can learn more if the connections between different neurons in the brain are stronger.
The motivational aspect of the games is also very important: for instance, if a child is given a choice that either he can play a video game or he can study for a particular time period, he will certainly love to play video games.
This leads us to think that why children always love to play games, and why are they always trying to avoid studies. This has something to do with the motivation level. “The enthusiasm that children show towards the games can be transferred to the studies as well by the introduction of educational content in the games,” argues Kyle Ward who works at Game Period.
Gaming can also strengthen different skills in children; for instance, they develop the skills of problem-solving, collaboration, communication, and negotiation. These are the skills that are extremely important if one wants to deal real life situations with courage.
There are different games available for the children of different ages, and it is important to note that these games fulfill the ideal learning requirements in correspondence to the children of different ages to whom these games are given. Apart from games, there are also different apps that are being introduced these days. These apps focus more on the educational content and less on the gameplay.
