Action video games boost reading skills, study of children with dyslexia suggests | ScienceDaily.com

Action video games boost reading skills, study of children with dyslexia suggests | ScienceDaily.com | Video Games Essay | Scoop.it

Much to the chagrin of parents who think their kids should spend less time playing video games and more time studying, time spent playing action video games can actually make dyslexic children read better. In fact, 12 hours of video game play did more for reading skills than is normally achieved with a year of spontaneous reading development or demanding traditional reading treatments.

 

The evidence, appearing in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on February 28, follows from earlier work by the same team linking dyslexia to early problems with visual attention rather than language skills.

 

"Action video games enhance many aspects of visual attention, mainly improving the extraction of information from the environment," said Andrea Facoetti of the University of Padua and the Scientific Institute Medea of Bosisio Parini in Italy. "Dyslexic children learned to orient and focus their attention more efficiently to extract the relevant information of a written word more rapidly."

 

The findings come as further support for the notion that visual attention deficits are at the root of dyslexia, a condition that makes reading extremely difficult for one out of every ten children, Facoetti added. He emphasized that there is, as of now, no approved treatment for dyslexia that includes video games.

Video games help your reading skills? Where were these studies when I was a kid?

-Very interesting, Scientists believe video games can help children that suffer from dyslexia. "Dyslexic children learned to orient and focus their attention more efficiently to extract the relevant information of a written word more rapidly."

This is really interesting, it shows how video games can help us teaching people with learning disabilities. I believe teaching through video games is the future of teaching.

The concepts of work and play have become farcically reversed: schoolwork is meant to be superfun and play, like homework, is meant to teach.

Another very good read, regarding learning and video games - “digital games with a strong simulation component may be effective learning environments.”
Sean Riley's curator insight, March 22, 2013 7:17 AM

Reading, Writing and video games all very closely linked to improve learning capabilities.
