Effects Of Video Game Playing On Children

I have found a common topic about the impact of playing game to a person especially children.This topic thoroughly described about the advantages and disadvantages of games to us.This quite important as children play a lot of role to our future country.Check this out..


  • Video game playing introduces children to computer technology.
  • Games can give practice in following directions.
  • Some games provide practice in problem solving and logic.
  • Games can provide practice in use of fine motor and spatial skills.
  • Games can provide occasions for parent and child to play together.
  • Players are introduced to information technology.
  • Some games have therapeutic applications with patients.
  • Games are entertaining and fun.


  • Over-dependence on video games could foster social isolation, as they are often played alone.
  • Practicing violent acts may contribute more to aggressive behavior than passive television watching. Studies do find a relationship between violent television watching and behavior.
  • Women are often portrayed as weaker characters that are helpless or sexually provocative.
  • Game environments are often based on plots of violence, aggression and gender bias.
  • Many games only offer an arena of weapons, killings, kicking, stabbing and shooting.
  • Playing violent video games may be related to aggressive behavior (Anderson & Dill, 2000; Gentile, Lynch & Walsh, 2004). Questions have been raised about early exposure to violent video games.
  • Many games do not offer action that requires independent thought or creativity.
  • Games can confuse reality and fantasy.
  • In many violent games, players must become more violent to win. In "1st person" violent video games the player may be more affected because he or she controls the game and experiences the action through the eyes of his or her character.
  • Academic achievement may be negatively related to over-all time spent playing video games. (Anderson & Dill, 2000; Gentile, Lynch & Walsh, 2004)

Compare And Contrast

Radio has progressed a lot just in short time.In fact, it's function also has multiplied. In addition, there are not only features improvement but also the quality of the radio also has upgraded. There are several similarities and differences between the old version radio and the new version radio.We will discuss them brightly but instead of their functions.

The first similarity is both still use electricity especially alkaline battery as primary source of energy to functioning the device.Related to the old version of radio which certainly used battery but nowadays, the production of latest radios can be seen which they still use of battery.In fact, there are so many other sources of energy that can be used such as solar energy instead of chemistry energy source.

Second one is both has become one of the important devices in their own time.For example, if we turning back to previous time, radio has become an interesting device in side of fitting people's free time after television.So, it is proved that how it can developed or advanced so fast.So this is the best answer for this.

Besides that, there are also some differences between both of them.The first one is the antique radio is made of wood while the latest one is made of plastic.This must be caused of the progressiveness of the radio itself which means technology today has invented so many new things that use of advance chemistry knowledge or so forth.

The other difference is the size of the latest radio is smaller than the old version radio.This due to the electronic things in the antique radio is too many so that they need to build it larger than the latest version radio which electronic circuit in the radio has become smaller.

For conclusion,latest radio is the best one as it has progressed a lot and much better than the antique radio.In some cases, old version radio also has their own special features that latest radio don't have.That's make them special.

What is make a good PowerPoint presentation?

  1. slide structure must be properly manages

    -basically use of point is better than a, audience will just not read the slide but they rather hear your elaboration
    -show only a point at a time
    -do not show to much animation

  2. fonts

    use different fonts for main points or secondary point
    -use common font such as Times New Roman
  3. colour
    using a font colour that contrast with the background colour is hard to read
    -try to use different colour for different point for example to differentiate between main point and second point
  4. Background
    use a background that has light colour
    -background that is attractive but simple
  5. graph
    always name your graph
  6. spelling and grammar
    -always has someone to check for your language if you are weak at that
  7. Simply provide a question for your audience

    don't ever end your slide abruptly
  8. void using flashy transition such as text fly-ins.

    these features may be impressive at first but
    may also distracting
  9. use the limit of slides

    more slides will make audience boring
    -a good one is one slide per minutes
  10. use proper sentence headlines on presentation slides

    -this could ensure audience clears about the topic that you had chosen to elaborate about
