I snipped this article for my News Bytes blog.
Game's up: parents monitor offspring's screens
Half of all adult Australians now play computer games, a report has found, and more than two-thirds of game-playing parents regularly join their children in front of the screen.
But on further reflection, I wonder how many parents read wth their kids... It has been proven that reading with children increases their literacy levels. Are we concerned with current literacy levels?
But then current educational game theory suggests that gaming increases children's thinking skills. Or are we simply inproving family functionality? "The famiy that plays together stays together"???
