“Conscious work from a player is a must.”
We found that most of the games that children were playing do encourage higher level learning and thinking, even though many schools are not using video games to enhance the curriculum. It did not matter whether or not it was a girl or boy, none of the games are gender specific. Although games are helpful to a child's education, parents should show discretion to the ratings of the games that their children are playing.
“Some academic scholars claim playing games is good for literacy, problem-solving, learning to test hypotheses and researching information from variety of sources.”
Game designers are "concern to design games which might attract girls."
Children in grades: K-4th grade
Both Male and Female
