Gaming can help young people learn important skills

For teachers
For parents
For students

Key message

Playing and making games can help children and young people to develop important skills like coding, problem solving and creativity.

Video games are a popular past time for children and young people. According to the Office of the eSafety Commissioner, 6 in 10 young people in Australia play online games. With this popularity, it is no surprise that many children and young people are also considering making their own video games. Playing and making video games can be opportunities for children and young people to learn important STEM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). There are even game design competitions that are open to school aged children, like the Australian STEM Video Game Challenge.

Learning how to code

Playing online games can inspire young people to learn how games are created. Learning how to code can be an empowering experience for children and young people. Coding supports the development a range of digital literacy skills, including:

  • logical and computational thinking
  • critical and creative thinking
  • design thinking
  • non-linear narrative and storytelling

Top tips

Find a coding club for your child

Find out what coding clubs are available in your area at Code Club Australia – a network of coding clubs for children aged 8-15.

Participate in school challenges

Encourage your local school to participate in coding, designing, gaming and other STEM challenges and enrol your kids to make the most of these opportunities. The Australian Computing Academy is a good place to start.

Share and be active

Scratch is a free web-based programming language developed by the MIT Media Lab. If your child is interested in learning how to code, consider helping them to set up a Scratch account so that they can play, create and share games.
