Can Playing Smartphone Games Be Beneficial for Students?

smartphone games

As a student, you’ve probably been brought up to believe that playing smartphone games is a distraction from study, something that you should only indulge when you’ve finished all of your work and gotten some free time. Although this is great advice, there are, however, a number of benefits to playing certain smartphone games on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. We’ve listed some of the main ways in which you can benefit from playing digital games as a student.

Brain Training Games

Studying for an advanced program, such as an online MEBME degree, is difficult. Therefore it’s important to make sure that your focus is as strong as possible and that you’re working to the best of your ability. Although it’s more likely that games designed to “train your brain” are only going to make you better at performing when playing those games, certain puzzles, such as Sudoku, or even doing word searches and crosswords, can help to keep your mind sharp and alert.

Quizzes for Revision

You can find a huge variety of quiz and revision apps available, from apps where you make your own customized flashcards and revision questions to games such as QuizUp, where you find thousands of questions on hundreds of different topics, from general knowledge to science and medicine. This is a fun way to spend your free time while strengthening your mind. Since you can compete against your friends or strangers, you hardly realize you’re building your knowledge base at the same time.

Gaming at Break Time

For students, taking regular breaks is an important way to maximize productivity. Doing so gives you the chance to recharge, clear your mind and come back to your work feeling refreshed and ready. When you’re taking a short break, playing a game could serve as a welcome distraction from anything stressing you out and help you to relax and look at your work in a different light. However, since some games can be addictive, it’s a good idea to set a timer on your smartphone so that you don’t go over your break time and leave yourself less time to study.

Smartphone Games and Socializing

Studying at home for an online MEBME program can be lonely but there are many great ways for online students to make new friends and socialize. Thanks to social media, online student meet-ups and colleges making more of an effort to include remote students in the community, it’s never been easier to have a great experience with the social side of things even if you’ve opted for an online degree. Playing games can be a great way to get to know your new friends and strengthen your relationships.

Many students see games as a treat without much value compared to studying and revision (or just a time-suck when they’re procrastinating and putting it off). However, digital gaming can actually be beneficial to students, when used in the right way.
