Minds & Media: Does Screen Time Affect School Performance?
Region:Vancouver Island
City:Victoria, BC
School:Claremont Secondary School
Abstract:Video games are known to improve spatial reasoning skills. Spatial skills are associated with success in math & science. Spatial reasoning was tested on paper and with a newly developed 3D video game. Screen time and spatial skills were analyzed and correlated with math and science grades. Passive hours (TV) showed a statistically significant negative correlation with science grades while active hours (gaming) did not.
