Definitely an interesting read.
Playing video games is not the evil that people condemn it to be. With everything there are negatives and positives. Video games allow people to solve puzzles or be more creative. For people who do online gaming, they usually have one than one monitor with more than one process going at the same time! Maintaining multiple monitors and processes at the same time is a great skill to have when getting a job in the future since more and more places are requiring office workers to use multiple screens at once.
Then again, others may argue about how video games are keeping more people indoors and causing health problems. This is something I don’t think can be denied at his point in time but, there are games now available to combat this.
I would love to see if this particular study is ever proved to be correct. I believe video games could have helped but, in this regard as mentioned there is no guarantee.
Do you think video games can be a benefit to students or are they just a distraction? Let me know what you think!
