As an adult, if you think back at your childhood days, you’ll probably be flooded with pleasant memories of some of the games you played, whether it was a board game, word game, or sporting activity. Undoubtedly, games can help kids develop certain skills such as spatial awareness, problem-solving, comprehension and so much more. Moreso, children enjoy learning with educational games. In this light, Access Bank partnered with 9ijakids, an online educative gaming platform, to develop games that will appeal to every child and make them eager to learn.
The ongoing health crisis has forced the hands of many governments around the world to take drastic measures in a bid to curtail the spread of the virus and one of this measure includes asking its citizens to stay at home. This also saw the closure of school activities, which necessitated the partnership by both brands as a means of keeping the kids entertained and engaged during these times through a series of fun and educative games. Some of the games include financial literacy games that are aimed at grooming money-savvy kids and other games including Science, Maths, English, Goal setting, Responsibility, About Nigeria, Values and so much more.
Also, the game, ‘who wants to be a brainiac’ will be hosted on Access Bank’s website and the top five kids stand a chance to win something exciting. The announcement will be made on Access Bank’s social media page on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This is a chance for your kids to show just how much of a brainiac they are and have fun learning about the subjects they love.
What we know about learning and human development suggests that games and other forms of imaginative play can serve as a valuable educational tool and powerful complement to traditional stand-and-deliver instruction. So, if you’ve got kids, this is a cool time to open them up to some cool games that will keep them busy while you get a breath of fresh air. What’s even better is that they get a form of incentive for learning! Go here to help them start learning.
