Does Videogames make Childs Cleverer?

1 min read

A study is being conducted by the American Library Association to try and find out if videogames are actually helping children become smarter. Using games like Singstar for literacy and Guitar Hero for hand-eye coordination, the Libraries hope to create a new set of activities to interest children and find new ways to learn.

This is some great and positive news to hear as the recent Thai list of dangerous games isn’t helping the image of videogames much. Reading, stabbing, what’s the difference anyway?
