Topic:

Some people say that modern children’s games do not contribute to their development (of a wide range of skills) as much as traditional games do. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

 

Essay:

It looks like that modern-day children are in danger of missing out some of the finest games played by their grandparents as part of the cherished memories of childhood. Relatively, children growing up in the world of today would rather stay inside and play video games than go outside and play traditional games. Typically, those modern games do not contribute so much to children’s development of many life skills as do those traditional games.

 

What, then, are the advantages of traditional games that contribute a lot to children’s development and beyond? First of all, it is important to understand that most adults’ happiest childhood memories probably revolve around more simple pleasures from playing such favorite games as hide and seek, kicking the can, building sandcastles, flying kite, skipping rope, and climbing tree. A number of ‘folk’ games which have been passed from generation to generation include many positive effects, including physical skills and socializing skills among children. What is more, since traditional games are usually played with minimal technology and maximum freedom, children can learn by example from other children without written rules pre-determined by computer programs. Without a doubt, children need that kind of freedom to play traditional games as a physical and mental necessity in the open air, and not just playing computer games like a little nerd in front of the screen.

 

As long as children enjoy playing, there is nothing wrong with modern games, if they are not played excessively. However, it must be pointed out that modern electronic gadgets, for example, barely feature in the treasures of childhood memories, not to mention that they are likely to affect negatively children’s wellbeing. Indeed, traditional games are so integral to childhood that a child who does not have the opportunities to play some of them is cut off from a major portion of childhood. Nowadays, there are even fears that technology is creating a generation of lonely children who struggle to make friends. Lack of exercise is also a key factor behind soaring levels of obesity, with the average youngster spending long hours daily spent in playing video games, and less time spent in doing outdoor exercise. Therefore, whereas digital games have their share of cognitive benefits ranging from improved problem solving skills to spatial navigation abilities, they nevertheless tend to be isolating and sedentary in most cases, as compared with traditional games.

 

In terms of children’s physical and mental development, traditional games do much better than modern games. Today’s children should be allowed to play modern games with limited screen time, but it is always advisable not to forget altogether those traditional games. After all, playing traditional games is probably the best way to remember the happy childhood.


主题:

有些人说,现代儿童游戏对他们(各种技能)的发展没有传统游戏那么有帮助。你在多大程度上同意或不同意?给出你的答案的原因,并包括任何相关的例子,从你自己的知识或经验。


论文:


现在的孩子们似乎正面临着错过祖父母们最精彩的游戏的危险。相对而言,在当今世界长大的孩子们宁愿呆在家里玩电子游戏也不愿出去玩传统游戏。一般来说,这些现代游戏对孩子们许多生活技能的发展没有传统游戏那么大的贡献。


那么,传统游戏的优势是什么呢?这些传统游戏对儿童的发展和其他方面都有很大的贡献。首先,重要的是要明白,大多数成年人最快乐的童年记忆可能围绕着一些简单的快乐而展开,比如捉迷藏、踢罐子、堆沙堡、放风筝、跳绳和爬树。一些世代相传的“民间”游戏有很多积极的影响,包括孩子们的身体技能和社交技能。更重要的是,由于传统游戏通常使用最少的技术和最大的自由,孩子们可以学习从其他孩子没有书面规则预先确定计算机程序。毫无疑问,孩子们需要那种在户外玩传统游戏的自由,这是他们在生理和心理上的需要,而不仅仅是在屏幕前像个书呆子一样玩电脑游戏。


只要孩子们喜欢玩,现代游戏没有什么问题,如果他们不过度玩。然而,必须指出的是,例如,现代电子产品在童年记忆的宝库中几乎没有什么特色,更不用说它们可能会对孩子的健康产生负面影响。事实上,传统游戏对孩子的童年来说是不可或缺的,一个没有机会玩其中一些游戏的孩子与童年的大部分时间是隔绝的。如今,人们甚至担心科技正在造就一代孤独的孩子,他们努力交朋友。缺乏锻炼也是导致肥胖水平飙升的一个关键因素,年轻人平均每天花很长时间玩电子游戏,花在户外锻炼上的时间更少。因此,与传统游戏相比,数字游戏在认知方面的好处从解决问题的能力到空间导航能力等方面都有所提高,但与传统游戏相比,它们在大多数情况下更倾向于孤立和久坐。


在孩子的身心发展方面,传统游戏比现代游戏做得更好。今天的孩子应该被允许在有限的屏幕时间内玩现代游戏,但总是建议不要忘记那些传统游戏。毕竟,玩传统游戏可能是记住快乐童年的最好方式。
