Improvement by Engagement
A while back in an older post I had touched a bit about gaming in life. I have always enjoyed playing games. My belief in games is that it has the potential to help improve our lives significantly and not just for entertainment purposes.
The thing about games in general is that they engage our minds more fully than your average educational setting of sitting in a classroom and listening to a teacher drone on about a topic that you may not care about. When you are engaged your focus is stronger and the ability to retain and recall information is that much higher. This is what I like to think of as utilizing the fun factor.
Most of us have great memory retention when it comes to something we really enjoyed. This fun factor drives us to want to do more of the given activity. And the more we do something the better we get.
When looking into some information on the topic I came across some interesting sites. For those of you who are interested I suggest reading through them. Below is a small list of sites to go to.
Though this post has mainly been about games used for educating what I really hope for all is that you find what it is you love to learn and dive into it. There may not be any games on that topic, but if you truly love it, then pursue it and share that joy with others. Thank you.
