Can video games change your brain? UW research suggests games can build empathy
MADISON, Wis. - New research from the University of Wisconsin-Madison shows video games may have the power to help children develop empathy and socially beneficial behaviors such as generosity.
At Gear Learning, the mission is to improve lives, and the studio does so by creating worlds.
“So far, we haven’t had a failure yet, or a content area we couldn’t design,” director Mike Beal said.
Gear Learning is a game development studio that is part of the Wisconsin Institute for Education Research at UW-Madison.
“We now know you can absolutely have fun while learning,” Beal said.
