We have seen how education has evolved from classrooms to home, from school teaching to e-learning, from teachers to some online tutor whom you don’t ever see, from books to online notes and presentations, from black board to projectors. Technology has helped in numerous ways to help the education system to develop in innovative ways that make learning entertaining. Even sites such as http://www.direct.tv have been designed to be more interactive and user-friendly now. A few decades ago when parents thought that children are getting addicted to television the school took this opportunity to make television as a source of education. By making visual clips and small documentary movies it’s seen that students enjoy this type of learning than the boring class room lectures. Now it has been seen that in today’s generation computers have overpowered the television and what best they do with is apart from browsing, listen music, watch movies is Games. A youngster getting addicted to games is a nightmare for any parent. Hence some institutions have started what we call is game based learning.
Why not make games in which students learn while playing games. Imagine having joysticks in your hands not books and pens. Coming to schools will be more interesting. Games of different categories are used to make the environment more educative. There are games made for all ages. Like to teach English alphabets for the beginner games are made to let them play with the alphabets and teach math to students who felt math was always boring. Many students try to co relate their subjects to what game they play. There are other games made especially for increasing the students’ general knowledge, their ability to improve lateral thinking skills and their approach to solve puzzles. It is observed that their brains are easily manipulated by playing games. Subjects like math, history, geography can be learned in a very interesting fashion. Many take gamming as their career in future.
