Interactive games help children to learn about winning, competition and losing gracefully. The most important lesson that kids can learn is how to defeat but still try again.
Competitive and interactive games provide opportunity for children to practice problem-solving. They learn about trial-and-error, how to cooperate and the importance of teamwork.
In addition offer plenty of opportunities for kids to improve their social skills and bond with those around them, particularly when the activities focus on collaborating or working together to achieve a goal. Physical activities promote fitness and health. Physical games don’t just get kids moving- they can also help children develop important attributes like agility, strength, balance and flexibility.
During games, the brain receives multiple stimulations, both visual and audial. According to research, individuals who play interactive games frequently can process these stimulators faster than others.
Interactive games have proven to be able to capture the player’s attention for the entire period of the game. This is brought about by the player’s need to achieve certain goals within the game, and be able to progress to the next level.
Most of the interactive games are educational games. They organize knowledge, skills and behaviour. The sense of participation in interactive collaborative games has been described by Jeffrey Cohen in Stanford as the ultimate way to deal with aggressive behaviour.
Therefore, playing interactive games help children become the kinds of citizens who can create and enjoy a sustainable and equitable society. In other words, cooperative interactive games help on building a better world, and this is their ultimate benefit for everyone—children and grown-ups alike.
