sequence of events holds and grabs players attention and

BENEFITS FROM MY EXPERIENCE
In today’s world the more comfortable a child is with technology the
better equipped he/she will stay on the top of it.
Educational games definitely increases students engagement.
Personalize instruction, better assess knowledge and collect
helpful information needed to improve their knowledge.
Children are less likely to develop attention problem in school and
very useful for the children who are less communicative in class
which I have experienced during virtual classes on Edmodo in
which students were exposed to numerous games by me.
CONCERNS IN GENERAL
Violence in video games can contribute to social behavior problems.
The students are likely to forget the skills learnt in the games when we test

It is difficult for the teachers to monitor each child in a stipulated time.
Number one barrier is funding. School have to spend huge amount and
not every school can access to teaching resources.
