What is The Modern-Day Concept of Game-Based Learning?

by Aiden Goh Author

The modern-day learning process is largely based on games. Schools are working hard to make learning fun for kids, and the same is the intention of parents to reduce the pressure on the minds of little kids. Games help a lot in mental development and bring up the strong concept of game-based learning. 

Here is everything that you need to know about it: -

It has become popular through learning games that are available in both online and offline mode. The kids enjoy playing these games, which teach them various things and help in better development of their brains.

  • These games are generally based on real-life concepts making it easier for kids to connect with these games. So, they do not have any problem in understanding these games and can instantly start playing. Since these games are connected to real life, kids become better decision-makers in the things happening around them.

They are instrumental in developing critical and strategic thinking in kids from a young age. This will help them in understanding things in a better manner, and they will be able to derive better conclusions.

  • These games keep kids engaged and help in improving their focus. This helps in avoiding the fickle mindedness and kids will even be able to concentrate on their studies in a better manner.

  • Most of the educational games have been designed in such a way that they cover the content that is usually given in the textbooks of kids. Thus, the motive of learning and studying is not lost while your kids are playing these games. Also, they will be able to learn their school lessons faster rather than only relying on their textbooks.

  • They give a boost to the productivity of kids. These kids perform better in exams as their brain is developed in a better manner. Also, their picture memory that is developed while playing games retain the concepts for a longer time. If these games cover the aspect of time as well, it is better for kids as they are trained to complete the task within the given time and will never leave their exams incomplete.

  • These games help kids in improving their retention power by bringing about the holistic development of their brains. They will be able to remember things for a long time even without revising them frequently. This will ultimately help them in scoring better grades in exams and will solve the purpose of this concept. 

  • Kids also get motivated while playing these games, and their interest in studies is developed automatically. Therefore, parents do not have to worry about forcing their kids to study or complain about their kids not paying attention to studies.

Though this concept is a good one but parents must monitor which games their kids are playing. Right games will surely develop their brains while the wrong ones can cause great harm. Also, it is important that the technique of gaming and the concept in that game should be chosen wisely so that it covers the topics given in their textbooks.
