The Positive Value of Video Games for People of All Ages
By the time you have finished listening to this show, you will want to sit down in front of a video game, call in the kids, and make room for grandma. In this show, Michael Lynch, Software Development Manager, Educational Game Designer and lifetime gamer, draws upon his personal and professional experience as well as research to open our eyes to the positive impact of video games.

In the back and forth with host, Dr. Suzanne Phillips he considers factors like the often overlooked socialization, teaming, and problem-solving gains of mutual teenplayers and the focus and manual dexterity of game players reflected even in the level of performance of arthoscopic surgeons who are game players.

Recognizing the potential for game playing to become excessive, at times addictive, Michael offers strategies for parents and draws upon his professional expertise as a game designer to discuss increasing ways that “gamification” makes use of the video games techniques to enhance effectiveness and motivation in school curriculums. With excitement he touches upon video techniques that motivate people of any age to reach for the next level when it comes to learning and personal health. Don’t miss this show.
