Why play learning games?
Some good reasons to play learning games:
- Playing needs utmost concentration. Research has proved that the ability to memorise grows with the level of concentration.
- Playing is fun and is usually done in a relaxed and emotionally positive atmosphere. Facts learnt in this context are retained and memorised in the long-term memory of the human brain.
- And situations of playing and games are kind of 'unreal'. The children feel free of consequences and sanctions - ideal for the learning process.
- Learning games avoid repression of learning between the children, because they learn through play with the classmates. In this way learn interaction, communication and other essential social skills.
