While some claim that the evolution of technology-based learning is detrimental to developing minds, the evidence points towards to the opposite. In fact, many scholars and researchers have gone on record time and again in support of the gamification of education. Calling it the way of the future, countless researchers are confident that educational video games empower students to take a more active role in their own learning.
From refining technological skills to increasing hand-eye coordination, to maximizing learning through visual approaches, educational video games differ from other video games, in one key aspect.
”While the games are fun, keep kids engaged, and are fast paced—like most traditional video games— their core aim is to teach.
The Game Learning Difference
In the case of Game Learning educational video games, our educational philosophy is one rooted in knowing that when kids have fun while learning, they want to learn more. That’s why we have created a suite of educational video games surrounding 60 unique historical events, which help players to engage with the past, all the while having a fun experience. By understanding the past, kids are empowered to understand how events, decisions, and outcomes of the past helped shape the world today.
Game Learning put kids into historical situations and begs the question: What would I have done differently in this situation? Understanding historical events through different perspectives cultivates empathy, engagement, and imagination in developing minds. Allowing children to see the link between the past and the present engages developing minds as they learn to draw conclusions from evidence.
”At Game Learning we believe that history is far more than a collection of facts and data, but as a living story that still affects our world today.
Enabling children to view history through interactive storytelling also allows concepts to be easily grasped and retained.
Game Learning seeks to nurture a lasting love of learning through engaging students in a fun manner from the first moment they begin to play our games. We endeavor to pique imagination, thereby fueling ingenuity, creativity, and resourcefulness.
Game Learning successfully links humanities with social studies to bring children an educational experience that is powerfully effective. Game Learning educational games can be played in the classroom, in the home, or on the move. Our single-player and multi-player options allow our games to be played in groups or as a solo activity. While our single-player games enable children to be engaged in their learning when they are by themselves, the multi-player games also allow kids to strengthen their ability to cooperate and collaborate with others, an invaluable skill for any child to learn.
Game Learning educational video games transport players to pivotal moments in history, immersing students & players in historical subject matter by drawing upon their natural curiosity while nurturing soft skills, problem solving, and historical thinking. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
