Why Play Learning Games?
Some good reasons:
- 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.
- Play and games are kind of 'unreal'. The children feel they are free of consequences and sanctions for making mistakes - ideal for the learning process.
- Learning games avoid repression of learning between children because they learn through play with their classmates. In this way, they learn interaction, communication, and other essential social skills.
