It seems that with the rise of technology, games like tag and hide-and-seek are becoming obsolete and an important question remains as to whether educational video games actually work.

In the 'Do Educational Video Games Actually Work' infographic, statistics reveal that a surprising amount of teachers use some form of digital game in their classrooms. The graph points out that while some agree that games could introduce as well as enhance certain skills in children like hand-eye coordination or visual-spatial skills, some still believe that video games can contribute to behavioral issues. Whether it is on the Xbox, computer or iPhone, it is almost impossible to steer kids away from video games with the abundance of technology and access available today.
