Violent Video Games Don't Influence Kids' Behavior

Violent Video Games Don't Influence Kids' Behavior | Education & Numérique | Scoop.it

"A small study offers a mixed view on whether video games may make kids more aggressive.

Those children who spend more time playing games might be slightly likelier to be hyperactive and to get into fights. But violent video games seem to have no effect on behavior, according to British researchers.

The researchers also said they discovered that kids who played video games for less than an hour a day were more likely to be less aggressive and rated as better-behaved by their teachers..."

11 Reasons Why You Should Integrate Games in Your Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education & Numérique | Scoop.it

"Games are ubiquitous digital activities that students , regardless of their grade level, engage in online. They play them on their computers, smart phones, with each other and with others they have never met. Several scientific studies published in this regard speak for the advocacy of game integration in education (see the list of resources at the end of this post). I have spent sometime reading some of these studies and came up with the list below featuring the main reasons why you need to consider using games in your teaching." (...)

"Your mother was wrong. Video games aren't bad for you. They're actually making your life better.

 

Despite hand-wringing over a supposed connection between violence and video games (hint: there isn't any), numerous academic studies indicate that playing video games has many psychological and even physical benefits.

 

Taken together, it turns out video games actually make you a better human being."

Why games make people happy ~ stuff.co.nz

Why games make people happy ~ stuff.co.nz | Education & Numérique | Scoop.it

by Daniel Johnson

 

"Our research has shown a range of benefits associated with playing video games, whatever their content.

 

"We have shown improvements in mood, reductions in stress, and feelings of competence and autonomy resulting from playing video games.

 

"Our studies of play with others have revealed benefits for young people in terms of social wellbeing and feelings of relatedness.

But importantly, we have also found co-operative video game play to be associated with increased brain activity for younger people.

 

"More broadly, using a well validated measure of mental health and wellbeing, we have found evidence that for adult players, a positive impact on wellbeing resulted from playing video games with other people.

 

"In a randomised controlled trial with a clinically depressed sample of adults, the positive influences of video games have been shown to include a reduction in tension, anger, depression and fatigue and increase in vigour."

Review: Minecraft and the Secret to a Video-Game Phenomenon | MIT Technology Review

Review: Minecraft and the Secret to a Video-Game Phenomenon | MIT Technology Review | Education & Numérique | Scoop.it

Minecraft’s mainstream appeal may not lie in the poetry tucked away in an endgame few will see, but it is to be found in this poetry’s sentiment. Here is a game that enables humans to experience an accelerated form of existence—of dominion but also of stewardship. It makes clear the ancient ties between creativity and survival, and the wonder of collaboration, coöperation, and community, both in its world and in the reality on the other side of the screen. This is a recipe that demonstrates how video-game design, in the right hands, can be elevated to an art form every bit as strange and wonderful as any other, revealing deep truths about the human condition.

Apprendre à programmer en jouant

"Pour soutenir l’économie numérique mondiale, il faut des développeurs. Si les programmes de formation à la programmation destinés à pallier la pénurie de professionnels du développement fleurissent, aujourd’hui, l’un des leviers les plus efficaces pour apprendre à coder au plus grand nombre reste le jeu.

 

En un an, grâce à Code.org, plus de 50 millions d’enfants dans 180 pays ont été initiés à la programmation à travers le programme Hour of Code. Une initiative soutenue notamment par Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg ou encore Bill Gates. Pourquoi la programmation est-elle devenue une compétence indispensable à maîtriser ? (...)"

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

Gaming is a great way to experience a story in a variety of ways, often choosing the story you would like to experience based on a set of given boundaries. Kind of like a choose your own adventure book, but typically with better graphics. that is not to say, however, that gaming replaces books, performance art, theatre, etc. Convergence isn't replacement.

luiy's curator insight, April 5, 2013 12:50 PM
o here’s my five reasons why I play World of Warcraft. Reason #1: The story and lore is amazing. WoW has a gigantic universe. It started with Warcraft I-III, a real-time strategy game, and the massive multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft came from the same universe and storyline. There is a main storyline, but then each race has its own storylines, some classes have their own storylines, each faction and group of people has its own storyline to delve into, and it’s just mind-blowing, and incredibly extensive. I’ve made an effort to read as much of the lore and storyline as I possibly can, and I still haven’t even scratched the surface. I’ve read a few of the books, and the writers that write the WoW books tend to be decent writers and do justice to the storylines. Even if you never wanted to play the game, the books are good for anyone who enjoys reading the fantasy genre. Reason #2: The music appeals to my music-nerd side. I played in concert band/wind ensemble from 5th grade all the way until my senior year of college. If I had more time, I probably still would play in the community band in my town. The music in WoW…I would have LOVED to play it in wind ensemble or concert band at any point in my life. Most of it doesn’t have any words, which makes it excellent to just listen to if I need to focus, or even just to fall asleep to at night. I’ve also snagged the Diablo III soundtrack (also from Blizzard Entertainment) and I actually have a Blizzard Entertainment playlist on my iPhone. It comes in handy. I tend to keep the music turned up above everything else when I’m playing. Most recently, the newest raid that came out has amazing music. I don’t mind wiping ten times in one night if I can keep listening to the music in the raid. Reason #3: It’s a social game, you can meet people from all over. I also happen to have the best guild of all time. It took about six months before we landed in the right guild. The original guild I joined when I started playing had some issues with the guild leader, and everyone quit playing except for Josh and I. We decided to roll on a role-playing server (Wyrmrest Accord) on a whim with our friend Ryan, creating three gnomes named Stabbystabz (a gnome subtlety rogue), Minnieheals (gnome discipline priest) and Tinyjewels (gnome frost mage).
