Games give kids a chance to practice reading, writing, and computing. While playing games, kids develop new strategist, predating possible outcomes, managing multiple resources, reading and deciphering maps, tracking complex statists, and adapting to increasingly difficult levels with a game. They learn a range of media literacies beyond basic reading that give them models for navigating our informational world.
