When learning suddenly becomes fun and even an adventure for the whole family!
Improving children’s motivation and concentration.
It will often be hard to motivate your children to do something they don’t particularly like, especially when it comes to doing their homework or to learning. Sometimes, however, just a little fun and excitement will make all the difference in motivating the kids to apply themselves.
New media can be exciting and offer fun
A wide ranging survey by the SCOYO “Parents” magazine showed that around half of those surveyed preferred learning via digital media. Turning learning into an interactive experience will anchor what is learned much more firmly in the brain, making it much easier to recall. Good educational games will motivate children to discover new facts and will also adapt to suit a learner. This is also the strategy of the family game INTERACTION, automatically adapting to suit the age of each player. This means the questions and tasks put to an 8-year-old will be different from those of a 10-year-old, but parents and grandparents will also be given tasks adapted to their age.
Movement boosts concentration
We all know that playing will motivate kids. Especially games that are diverse and designed to address as many of our senses as possible. Studies show that regular movement and short breaks to loosen up will also improve concentration. So, should you notice that your sprog absolutely refuses to learn, take a break and start a game. The INTERACTION game has an Action category with mini games such as “Muscle machine” where players demonstrate their physical prowess by means of press-ups, knee bends and more. The mini game “Skillmaster”, however, demands skill and balance of the body. But the other categories also demand some movement every now and then, however. With INTERACTION “Quick play” continuing for just about 30 minutes, this game is also perfect for short breaks and freshening up on the go.
The motto is: taxing, but not overtaxing
Whether adult or child, we all feel overtaxed if the challenge is beyond our capability. Motivation is then twice as difficult and interest will fade away. This applies to both learning and playing. It is thus particularly important that questions and tasks are commensurate with age and learning progress. The INTERACTION app by now boasts more than 10 000 questions and tasks and will automatically adapt to the location and the age of individual players. Children will in this way be given tasks to suit their capabilities and adult tasks would be that more challenging. This means that every player will always be taxed but never overtaxed. INTERACTION is thus gaming fun for all!
