Kids read better thanks to action video game

Fluent reading requires not only decoding words and sentences, but also targeted eye movements and the use of working memory. In order to specifically train these skills, the researchers led by Angela Pasqualotto from the University of Trento developed an action video game suitable for children.

“The universe of this game is an alternative world in which the child, accompanied by his Raku, a flying creature, must complete various missions to save planets and advance in the game,” Pasqualotto said in a statement from the University of Geneva.
