Are computer games an effective tool to classroom instruction?

  • Yes. Just Yes.

    Look at one of the most popular computer games out there right now... I use this argument a lot, but it is perfectly valid in this situation, Minecraft, standing at over 10 million users, is an extremely educational game. Minecraft can be used to teach simple multiplication, geography, and science, add a genius modding community, and you have a recipe for a fun and highly interactive
    lesson in the classroom! Sweden is using Minecraft in the classroom already, and yes, I know that Sweden is where the creator of Minecraft, Markus Persson, lived, but that is irrelevant.

    Yes the rght ones are There are a lot of computer games that are both fun and educational. If these games are properly used in the classroom they can really help certain students to learn. The games should not over take the classroom but once in a while as a fun alternative is a great idea.

    It can but only it the right circumstances The game has to be designed in such a way so that the children think that they are playing a game akin to what they have played before, but still teaches the children the subject in question. You cannot just throw any old game in a classroom and expect the children to learn.

  • Yes i do

    I think games would be a good way to learn better strategies. Take Minecraft for example it help with agriculture math, science, and even survival skills. If you were stranded on an island and you played a year worth of Minecraft what would you do first. I would make a raft to go home

  • Yas yas yas

    Game is love, game is life, games teach us everything from role-playing, strategy, math ,science, geography, speed, logic, teamwork, hand-eye coordination. Everything. Tell your teacher, he/she might let you! Games are also competition. Leader boards and competition definitely motivate students. Trust me, educational gaming is da besssst. It's the most effective way to teach students.

  • Itll be more fun

  • They just are!

    Video Games are good for you for example if you were playing a MOBA game u can learn to type really fast and be more social if u are talking to them and for example minecraft can help u by when u are building massive structures it helps u with math, architecture, and it can help u be more adventurous in real life. If u were playing CoD u could learn to be more cautionened with people around u like when u get shot or get hurt ur screen turns red and u learn more.

  • Architecture and Management

    Games like SimCity, The Simpsons Tapped Out!, etc. can help in management, like when you need to save money to pay for something to advance. Games like Minecraft and other games that include blocks can help them improve in architecture, due to the fact that you have to use your imagination in those games.

  • Yes we should it would be alot funner than PAPER

    If you only use paper,it would be a lot boring and using a computer game will be A LOT funner.Some games are the kinds of games that accually help you with school.If kids get bored,they won't understand the subject and get confused.That is why i think we should use computer games

  • Computer games should be used

    Computer games contain educational learning. Keith Devlin a Stanford. Mathematician, says that "video games are the perfect way to teach math".
    If you practice a math game, you will get better at the game, an then you will get better at math."People who play action video games can process visual information more quickly and can track 30 percent more objects than non video game players (National geographic)."If you are stressed then you could play computer games and it will stop stress. Rick Missimer says, "It’s a great medium to get rid of stress for children as well as for elders." Its fun and enjoyable and that's what stops stress.
    There is lot of strategic thinking, innovative thinking and co-operation on all games. The games don't have to be educational but there is always educational thinking in games.

  • Yes the rght ones are

    There are a lot of computer games that are both fun and educational. If these games are properly used in the classroom they can really help certain students to learn. The games should not over take the classroom but once in a while as a fun alternative is a great idea.

  • A Good Supplement

    I do not believe computer games are an effective tool for classroom instruction. I believe teachers should stick to classic methods that have been shown to work and then use stuff like games, as a supplement or maybe homework. I do not support using games as a function of the in class learning process.

  • Computer games are not an effective tool to classroom instruction.

    Computer games are not an effective learning tool simply because of their name. Even if these activities have educational value, they should not be called games. A lot of educators are too eager to apply high tech solutions to education that might not have any real value towards teaching kids.

  • No, compiuter games are more for entertainment than learning.

    There can be times when a computer game is educational and can be used as a special treat in the classroom. For the most part, though, games often encourage lack of an attention span and are more for entertainment purposes than for learning. As a special treat, they could be used to help kids learn or apply themselves. When I was in a computer class in school, we were allowed to play games once we finished our class assignment. This encouraged students to apply themselves at the task in order to have a reward at the end.
