The number of hours spent gaming is a contentious issue in almost all family households. Many of us are concerned about how much is too much when it comes to screen time. It can be easy to look back with rose-tinted glasses at our \u2018supposedly\u2019 screen-free childhoods and wonder \u2013 are all these screens having a negative effect on our families?<\/p>

Thankfully, the world of gaming has developed and expanded tremendously over the past decade, and research has shown that it can be a great way to bring families together, learn new skills and help to spark curiosity in the world.\u00a0<\/p>

1. Gaming can help to build social skills and good habits<\/h2>

Many of the popular app-based or online games people play today aren\u2019t designed to be played in isolation. They help users build friendships with other players and reward those who are working collaboratively. Games can be a great way to bring family and friends together, whether they\u2019re living in the same house or not.<\/p>

Games can also play a very positive role in the development of social skills. They often require teamwork, good communication and they reward pro-social behaviour. All great lessons that can then be used in the real world.<\/p>

For children interested in competitive gaming, online academies, such as Guild Academy, help budding players aged 11 and over to develop their gaming prowess, providing a range of resources designed to nurture their learning and life skills, as well as gaming abilities. Outside of esport-specific coaching, Guild Academy offers a holistic approach to player development where the focus will be on building good habits through things like better nutrition, work-life balance and more.<\/p>

\u201cMy son felt he was part of something exciting and special [at Guild Academy]. He loved being linked with others who had the same passion for Fortnite and really felt a sense of achievement when he improved after the training sessions.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

\u201cThe Guild Academy is an amazing experience as there\u2019s lots to see and do on the website, and on Xbox. It was great that we could do something together as well.\u201d<\/em><\/p>","value":"

\u201cThe Guild Academy, if you have the ambition and drive to complete it, will make gameplay more enjoyable as you will win more matches due to your skill level increasing.

5. Gaming can improve vision<\/h2>

Yes, that\u2019s right. In a 2009 study<\/a>, scientists found that 50 hours of action-packed game play (spread over 10 to 12 weeks) improved the gamer\u2019s ability to distinguish subtle differences in shades of grey. In other studies, it\u2019s been found that gaming can improve eyesight in lazy eyes, more so than other types of concentrated activities like watching TV or knitting.<\/p>

6. It helps to develop hand-eye coordination<\/h2>

Whether you\u2019re on a phone or using a console, games that require real-time movement require fast reflexes. This kind of reflex practice can help players develop better hand-eye coordination. Some studies<\/a> even show that gaming can improve performance in surgeons.<\/p>

\u201cIt\u2019s a great way to learn the importance of practicing in order to get better at something. You learn to be patient, strategic and it improves hand-eye coordination.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

7. It helps to generate positive feelings and emotional resilience<\/h2>

Contrary to popular belief, gaming has regularly been shown to reduce stress and increase positive emotions. In fact, some scientists<\/a> go as far as saying that gaming is one of the most efficient and effective ways to generate positive feelings.<\/p>

What Mumsnet users say<\/strong><\/p>

\u201cWe\u2019re avid gamers. Gaming offers us a feeling of belonging. The barriers that exist in real-life are not present, the opportunity to develop and grow in multiple areas are endless, and then there\u2019s the sheer feel-good emotion of simply playing.

How do you get a character from one place to another? Where in the house did you leave that skateboard? When we play games, we\u2019re constantly training our brains to memorise new functions and new routes. This activity can help memory recall in other aspects of life too. So whether you're eight or 80, it\u2019s a great chance to keep your brain active and engaged.<\/p>

公会学院的标志

在几乎所有的家庭中,花在游戏上的时间是一个有争议的问题。当谈到屏幕时间时,我们很多人都担心多少时间算太多。我们很容易带着玫瑰色的眼镜回顾我们“理应”没有屏幕的童年,并想知道——所有这些屏幕对我们的家庭有负面影响吗?

值得庆幸的是,游戏世界在过去十年中发展壮大,研究表明,这是一个让家庭团聚、学习新技能、激发好奇心的好方法。

因此,我们查看了最新的研究,并请Mumsnetters分享他们的经验,关于游戏的令人印象深刻的好处,以及特别设计的游戏学院(如Guild Academy)的积极回报。

1.游戏有助于培养社交技能和良好习惯

如今许多流行的基于应用或在线游戏并不是为了让玩家单独体验而设计的。它们帮助用户与其他玩家建立友谊,并奖励那些合作的玩家。游戏是将家人和朋友聚在一起的好方法,无论他们是否住在同一栋房子里。

游戏也可以在社交技能的发展中发挥非常积极的作用。它们通常需要团队合作,良好的沟通,并奖励亲社会行为。这些都是可以在现实世界中使用的宝贵经验。

对于对竞争性游戏感兴趣的儿童,在线学院(如帮会学院)帮助11岁及以上的初露头角的玩家发展他们的游戏能力,提供一系列旨在培养他们学习和生活技能以及游戏能力的资源。除了特定于电子竞技的教练之外,公会学院还提供了一种全面的球员发展方法,其重点是通过更好的营养、工作与生活的平衡等方式培养良好的习惯。

Mumsnet用户说了什么

“当我们一起玩游戏时,我们会不断地与他人互动,这很好。我们发现这是一种真正的增进感情的活动。听起来很俗气,但这是真的。”

“我儿子觉得他是(公会学院)令人兴奋和特别的一部分。他喜欢和那些对《堡垒之夜》有同样热情的人在一起,当他在训练后进步时,他真的感到很有成就感。”

“公会学院是一个令人惊叹的经历,因为在网站上和Xbox上有很多可以看和做的事情。我们也可以一起做一些事情,这很好。”

2.它能提高解决问题的能力和创造力

所有游戏都要求玩家学习规则并发展新技能,以实现既定目标,无论是明确下一步行动方向,还是发现问题并避开问题。

几项研究发现,这类游戏可以帮助玩家培养重要的解决问题的能力,这些能力可以应用到现实生活中。另外,成就感往往是无可比拟的。

Mumsnet用户说了什么

“除了更明显的团队合作、合作、分享、管理赢家和输家的技能外,我认为游戏还有助于玩家在行动中思考,解决问题并制定战略。”

“公会学院,如果你有野心和动力去完成它,将使游戏更有趣,因为你将赢得更多的比赛,因为你的技能水平提高了。你可以按照自己的节奏学习,选择完成哪门课程,投入越多,收获越多。”

3.它可以增加浓度

玩游戏的女人打来电话

玩游戏可以鼓励整个家庭将注意力转向实现一个特定的目标。这练习浓度能提高我们过滤无关信息的能力同时也要关注现实生活中与任务相关的部分。

Mumsnet用户说了什么

“游戏本身教会了你很多关于设定和实现目标以及制定计划的东西。要想成为一名优秀的球员需要投入大量的学习、时间和精力,这令人印象深刻。”

“我会向其他人推荐Guild Academy,因为它能让我儿子专注于手头的任务,而不是漫无目的地四处乱窜。”

4.游戏可以促进学习,激发人们对新事物的兴趣

许多手机、在线和主机游戏为用户提供了新的活动、爱好和习惯,从绘画、园艺到清理垃圾等良好行为。幻想世界也能激发真实世界的学习对话。

对于更认真的玩家来说,像公会学院这样的学院对于孩子和家长来说都是一种教育体验,在那里他们可以了解自己最喜欢的爱好,并通过游戏进行有组织的学习。该学院充满活力的社区可以提供一种归属感,并帮助孩子们找到其他有相似兴趣和爱好的人。

Mumsnet用户说了什么

“游戏让我能够访问现实生活中我永远无法负担的国家,结识精彩的角色,探索美丽的世界,结交新朋友。它们对我的生活产生了巨大的积极影响。”

“我儿子很喜欢在《堡垒之夜》中(通过Guild Academy)发展自己的技能,他也很喜欢和朋友们聊天。我喜欢他在玩游戏的同时也在学习!”

“我儿子真的很喜欢(公会学院的)结构化学习,他喜欢把提示和技巧传递给朋友。”

5.玩游戏可以改善视力

是的,没错。在一个2009年研究,科学家们发现,50小时的动作游戏(时间跨度为10到12周)提高了玩家分辨灰色阴影细微差别的能力。在其他研究中,人们发现游戏可以改善懒惰眼睛的视力,比看电视或编织等其他类型的集中活动更有效。

6.它有助于发展手眼协调能力

无论您是在手机上还是在游戏机上,需要实时移动的游戏都需要快速反应。这种反射练习可以帮助玩家发展更好的手眼协调能力。一些学习甚至表明游戏可以提高外科医生的表现。

Mumsnet用户说了什么

“这是一个很好的方法来学习练习的重要性,以便更好地完成某件事。你学会了耐心、有策略,这可以改善手眼协调。”

7.它有助于产生积极的情绪和情绪弹性

与普遍的看法相反,游戏经常被证明可以减轻压力,增加积极情绪。事实上,一些科学家们可以说,游戏是产生积极情感的最有效方式之一。

Mumsnet用户说了什么

“我们是狂热的游戏玩家。游戏给我们一种归属感。现实生活中存在的障碍并不存在,在多个领域发展和成长的机会是无穷无尽的,然后是纯粹的玩游戏的感觉良好的情绪。如果我说赢不重要,我会撒谎,但寻求成功是一种选择——而不是他的‘津贴’保持不变。”

“我觉得他在Guild Academy的游戏时间里做了一些有建设性的事情。在线教程有激励方面,可以转移到生活的各个方面。他对游戏的适应能力大大提高,因为他能够在遇到困难时寻求帮助,并向他人学习。”

8.玩虚拟游戏可以帮助发展对世界的理解和提高词汇技能

各种各样的游戏为家庭提供了在安全的环境中了解他人、文化和语言的机会。它可以帮助你理解和庆祝差异,同时还能增加词汇量。

Mumsnet用户说了什么

“在阅读了故事情节和角色对话后,我发现我的DC漫画阅读能力有所提高。”

9.玩游戏可以提高记忆力

你如何将一个角色从一个地方带到另一个地方?你把滑板放在屋里什么地方了?当我们玩游戏时,我们不断地训练我们的大脑去记忆新的功能和新的路线。这种活动也可以帮助回忆生活中其他方面的记忆。所以,无论你是8岁还是80岁,这都是一个让你的大脑保持活跃和参与的好机会。

Mumsnet用户说了什么

“(我儿子)说,在Guild Academy将课程和练习分解成容易记住的内容非常棒,他喜欢在自己喜欢的游戏中变得更好。”

“我不玩虚拟游戏,但我丈夫玩。我相信它能保持思维敏捷。他的认知能力比我强,这要归功于他多年的游戏经验。”
