Skills and Games


 


In today’s episode I’m discussing how life skills can be learned by playing computer games, together with my uncle and game expert Marc Bodmer, who has been working in the field of interactive media for more than 25 years.


Marc talked about the seven survival skills, according to Harvard Professor Tony Wagner, that are trained by playing computer games. Yet, the challenge of the transfer to professional life and school remains. These seven survival skills are the following:


 


Criticial Thinking & Problem-Solving

 


Collaboration Across Networks & Leading by Influence

 


Agility & Adaptability

 


Initiative & Entrepreneurialism

 


Effective Oral & Written Communication

 


Accessing & Analysing Information

 


Curiosity & Imagination

 


This is the fourth episode of a series focusing on video games and the interdependence of interactive entertainment and players of all age groups.
