Children today have grown up with computers as an integral part of their lives for as long as they can remember.  “Generation Z” is the most tech-oriented generation yet, and not only is it an age group that relies on technology for entertainment and convenience, but it’s also a generation that is increasingly reliant on technology to assist with their education.  Instead of trying to build walls between the dizzying Digital Age and the traditional, conventional classroom setting, more and more educators are instead embracing high-tech methods of learning.

Many people in older generations believe that electronic gaming has a negative impact on kids’ ability to learn.  This is in fact not the case and, if utilized properly, many video games and computer games can actually help children learn, improve their memory capacity, strengthen their hand-eye coordination, sharpen their problem-solving skills, and enable kids to become more computer-literate.

Though game-based education can help students in many areas, here’s how Game Learning can help children understand the sometimes challenging subject of history:

How Game Learning Teaches History Through Blended Learning

Game Learning transports kids back into the past so they can experience key historical moments firsthand. Game Learning history lessons focus on fascinating moments throughout history and lets kids imagine what they would have done had they been in the shoes of the pivotal figures who lived them.  Allowing children to think about history not just as a boring collection of dates and facts but as a collection of living stories that still impact us today allows the subject to be learned in a way that’s much more immediate, fun, and life-changing for young students.

Game Learning lessons put kids into historical situations and forces them to ask themselves: What would I have done in this situation?  Why did these historical figures make the choices they made?  And how did these decisions help shape our present world?

Students Take Ownership of Their Learning

Whether your child likes to learn by listening, watching, or doing, Game Learning’s educational video games, graphic novels, and lesson plans will keep them actively engaged at every step.  From playing games, to reading and analyzing historical graphic novels, Game Learning is sure to appeal to your child and whatever their unique learning preferences may be.

Why Game Learning?

Game Learning educational video games are remarkable for their versatility. They can be played at school, at home, on-the-go, alone, or even with the whole family.  Game Learning’s multiplayer games not only help kids learn history but help strengthen their ability to collaborate and cooperate with groups. The single-player lessons and games also pack enough educational fun to keep you child challenged and entertained all by themselves.

Game Learning Benefits Both Teachers & Parents

Keeping students focused and invested in lesson plans is a tall task for any teacher in almost any educational environment.  Game Learning knows that keeping an entire classroom engaged with the same curriculum is a challenge, which is why our products’ focus on all different types of teaching methods is so invaluable to teachers.  There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to teaching a child history, but Game Learning assists teachers in reaching all students, no matter what their preferred learning method may be.

Outside of the classroom, parents will love the fact that Game Learning offers their children an educational alternative to television or surfing the internet.
