http://games.xboltz.net – “Computer games are a popular pastime, but their value is often underestimated. Most people simply enjoy playing the games without analyzing them, while some consider gaming to be a complete waste of time. However, when computer games are examined from an educational point of view, research indicates that games do much more than develop eye-hand coordination. Actually, many academic benefits can be gained from playing games. Computer games are suitable for improving literacy skills, exploring history and geography, and learning math and science concepts. Business and social science topics are also included in computer games.”
