How Books & Games make children Future-ready?
Benefits of reading from a young age:
✔ Small strengths or deficits at the start of reading compound over time – Matthew Effect in Reading
(Reading expert Keith Stanovich in 1986, researchgate.net)
Playing suitable games teach kids:
✔ how to win and lose with grace and good manners (Gobet et al 2004, researchgate.net)
✔ to consider the concept of rules, reason about moral problems, encourage players to detect patterns, plan ahead, predict the outcome of alternative moves and learn from experience. (Gwen Dewar 2012, parentingscience.com)
