Indians spend 8.5 hours a week playing video games, a report revealsAdvertisement
3. Players learn from failureGames are a natural way to allow students to fail in a safe way, learn from failures and try again until they succeed. Some games, like Burnout Paradise make failure fun. In the game, players can crash their cars — and the more spectacular the crash, the higher the points. This allows players to essentially learn from their mistakes, correct them and try again.The late video game theorist and author Jesper Juul wrote in his book, "The Art of Failure," that losing in video games is part of what makes games so engaging. Failing in a game makes the player feel inadequate, yet the player can immediately redeem themselves and improve their skills.
4. Students stay engaged in contentThe average time a student spends learning in a classroom is only 60% of the allocated class time. Extending the school day to give students more time for learning has been shown to be only marginally effective. A more effective way to maximize time for learning is through engaged time on task. When students are interested and care about a topic and it is relevant, they are curious and engaged.
This provides a much better learning experience. In the classroom, teachers can engage students. But when it comes to homework, educators have to rely on other ways to motivate students. One way is through games. Educational games can be designed to improve motivation and engagement, providing students with more engaged time on task.
