Interactive games help support learning. A research project by Deakin University found 75% of students agreed that games could help them to learn, but that all games are appropriate for learning. It was also noted, it was not the game itself but the ways that teachers used games to teach complex concepts that made the biggest difference.
Students are motivated and engaged when they play games either with other students or by themselves and either online or offline. This helps to improve their communication skills.
Playing games helps with:
- language practice in speaking, writing, listening and reading
- encouraging students to interact and communicate
- creating a meaningful context for language use.
