Learning while you Play!


How can we learn from playing video games and how is this influential to our adult life?


Addressing the broad topic of what can children and teenagers learn from playing video games should be how children can learn from playing video games. Research by Daphne, et al. (2012) examined; reaction time, cognition, memory, processing speed, and visualization perception. Each skill is leaned and enhanced by playing action video games.

Women In Technology

Over the past ten years, the gaming industry has changed drastically.  Although more women are working in the gaming world, the number of women in the development of games or (devs) is still meager as compared to the number of men in developer roles.  Gaming developers are responsible for creating the virtual worlds within games.  As compared to ten years ago, the number of women in the gaming industry has only slightly increased; however, there has been no significant change to the amount of women coding, script writing, and graphics development. Why do women in gaming primarily hold positions in administration, management, and advertising, when women have creativity and technological attributes that could significantly contribute to the development of games?

The screen still considered any screen. In some cases children are watching a movie while playing a game, this is called dual screen time. Distractions from one or the other may dilute the meaning or objective from one or the other. If your child is playing a game on their handheld device or phone, their attention is split in an attempt to grasp the movie they are watching.
