Online Games Could Increase Kids’ IQ
Video games are a unique phenomenon in this world. Video games can give a pretty good entertainment but these also can make kids addicted, even adults too. Maybe addiction is a negative thing we’ve heard for video games. However, do you know that playing games can make kids smarter?
I am an engineering undergraduate. While at the university I have come across this phenomenon, where groups of students who have liked playing games have tended to get good grades in every lesson they have taken. Of course, it does not mean they who are not like video games are stupid and will get bad grades for their lessons, this is only just the fact that playing games could help brain activity become better.
There are many methods that can help patterning brain so that a person becomes smarter and more confident. One is the neuro language program (NLP). Basically, the human’s brain has a tremendous ability but it does require the setting of the brain so that it can receive all the information effectively. As it was NLP, NLP uses the method of how to program one’s state of mind with positive-thinking so the brain will receive positive signals so that the brain will work better because the signal is positive. Even the most popular today is how to program the use of the midbrain. In many books mentioned that the midbrain has a very high potential in improving human intelligence.
Basically a person’s brain requires a pattern or steps that could set the brain so that the brain can function better. And what about Einstein that did not follow the NLP or any similar program but he was genius? Did you know that Einstein had activities that are able to program his brain to think positive? He always happy with the activities he did in the form of research or other activities that he liked.
We need expensive investment to follow any NLP class or similar program. But there is a way that could set the brain effectively and free, that is by playing online games. Online games can activate the brain’s nerve because it enables the brain to think of strategies to win games and all are done by players in happy-state and entertained. By playing online games, the brain will work more active and unnoticed in happy-state and load free. However, to obtain a positive impact in the classroom, kids must learn enough. By playing online games, the brain will be helped to work actively so it will be easy to accept the lesson material.
