How to Teach Kids to Learn by Watching Movies and TV


The video game industry has become a lucrative industry for studios and publishers with the release of the latest and greatest video games.

But what if you could learn something from watching movies and TV? 

What if you can teach children how to learn in order to live a more fulfilling life? 

That’s what Dr. Robert Wahlstrom, professor of psychology and behavioral sciences at Indiana University and director of the Institute for Educational Technology Research, is proposing in his new book The Learning Brain: The Science of Teaching Children to Learn by Doing. 

Dr Wahlstroem is also the author of the Beyond Video Games: Learning Through Video Games and Teaching Children to Play by Doing: Teaching Games and Other Educational Games to Make Children Feel Better. 

He is a video game critic for PopMatters, a weekly blog about the video game industry published by the American Psychological Association. 

I spoke with Dr. Wahlstrum about his research on the learning brain and how to teach children to play video games in order to be better off in their life.

Dr. Welsch has been researching the learning effects of video games for more than twenty years, and he is a video game critic who has received many positive press and awards for his research on video games and video game education. 

The Learning Brain is published by Simon & Schuster on June 22, 2018.
