Don’t shout at the kids just yet for playing too many video games as it seems that playing games on the PS3 or Xbox 360 may actually help our children develop essential skills for later in life, according to new research being carried out at Michigan State University.
The three year study carried out by the team at Michigan State looked into the effects of on and off-line video games on a group of 12 year old children.The team results showed that children who regularly played video games demonstrated improved “Visual spatial skills”, which are important for the way children learn.
Study lead professor Jackson would like to see more game developers creating games to help build these skills, instead of focusing on violent content. Lets hope game developers see the potential in this and get on board to help develop some interesting new concepts
