Online Video Games May Boost High School Students' Academic Skills


MONDAY, Aug. 8, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- A new Australian study suggests that players of online video games do better in school, but those who frequent Facebook or chat sites are more likely to have trouble.

It's not clear whether games or social sites have a direct cause-and-effect relationship on students' academics.

Still, "when you play online games you're solving puzzles to move to the next level and that involves using some of the general knowledge and skills in math, reading and science that you've been taught during the day," said study author Alberto Posso, an associate professor in the School of Economics, Finance and Marketing at Australia's RMIT University.
