At some point, we all struggled to learn some new theories during our educational path. Sometimes a concept is too boring, or we simply have other things on our mind and the time that we could dedicate to learning is just not enough.
Similarly, if you are a parent, you may see how your kid sometimes just cannot learn concepts on their own, or rush through their studying material in order to play with their friends later, without really grasping the notions that needed to be learned.
Therefore, it is straightforward to understand why our team thinks gaming should be a fundamental part of our learning toolkit. Games introduce a challenging factor that can improve our focus and attention span on any subject, even the most boring ones. This is true regardless of your age, do not think that adults cannot benefit from a naive memory game!
3 Reasons To Use Games For Your Study
Reason 1 – Help Your Memory
Our brain is an extremely powerful tool, but it needs to be trained and cannot be overloaded. Traditional studying techniques have a tendency to put an excessive load on our memory (for example when a student highlights too many parts in a book chapter), the use of short game sessions tests your knowledge without putting too much stress on your brain.
Reason 2 – Personalise You Learning
We will never be tired to repeat it, learning needs to be active, it cannot be a passive process. Studying is not just about listening to long and deep explanations, this is not how our brain works since we are not recording machines. We need to make each concept as it if were ours, our brain needs to “digest” it and elaborate on it!
Reason 3 – Challenge Yourself
The introduction of a challenging factor in the learning process helps motivate our brain to assimilate and retain a certain piece of information.
