Game Based Learning Apps
There are many benefits that one can get from using game apps aside from playing to relax or to forget the stress in the workplace. In this activity, you do not really focus on accomplishing any goals but rather you want to experience the fun of it. It’s a type of game where the only point of playing is to have fun and enjoyment. There are, however, other types of games which are not designed to primarily reduce stress and depression, but games designed to improve your decision making skill. These games are those in which you have to decide what to do very quickly or make some split second decisions. Because of the continuous practice the player gets is decision making, it helps him in his ability in making decisions when he is already making it in the real world.
Another areas are those games that do not simply make you accept rote memorization. In these games the good players are those who instinctively react to stimuli. It is sometimes called impulse because you do not need to use your brain. In these type of games there is no need to memorize anything but you need to make quick decisions of problems that are presented to you. The idea, really, is to teach gamers the value of trying several different solutions to a problem. It might not have to be solving problem from a devised situation but solving a single problem by attempting to devise several responses to solve it.
These games are very helpful not only to improve its functions but it also helps prevent forgetfulness or memory loss.
These games also stimulate our brain functions and at the same time it also boosts our creativity and intensified our cognitive values.
When we play interactive games it improves relationships with others and their connections with you. Children who are experiencing attention disorders were actually helped by online games as researches have shown. Parents have reported that their children, through game apps, have found a way to improve on their social skills by interacting and connecting with others. There are games in the apps that encourages people to work together at a certain task and with all the risks involved, you come together and interact with each other to be able to beat all the odds. This also bonds children as well as adults because they are doing something together.
All these learning modules when placed in a medium that is dull, will make people less engaged and motivated. We don’t really learn by simple memorization but with the acquisition of skills and the use of our minds so that we respond appropriately under pressure, and which we game from games.
