New Sesame Workshop study on the positive effects of video games
As promised, it is not all doom (the adverse fate, not the game) and gloom (the state of melancholy, not the Pokemon) here at the TechAddiction Blog.
A new report by the Sesame Workshop has outlined some of the positive effects of playing video games.
If games are played in moderation, are age appropriate, and avoid violent content, some of the potential benefits include:
– Exposure to new vocabulary words, history, and science concepts
– Improved math and complex problem solving skills
– Improved “Systems Thinking” (how changing one element affects larger relationships)
– Improved physical health (for “active” and fitness games)
For more details, check out the full report.
