Watch Us Play is for parents, guardians, and teachers who want to understand why children love playing videogames, how to more effectively manage device time without arguments, and how to use videogames to improve the maths skills of children aged 6-11 years old.
It includes interviews with parents, child psychologists, and games industry experts who share their tips, techniques, and experiences with children and gaming. The book helps parents understand how the age ratings work for games, dispels myths about videogames and violence, and provides models and frameworks for how to understand the games children are playing and how to build a stronger relationship with children through their love of videogames.
The second half of the book focuses on maths and introduces the PARROT framework – a method for using key features found in videogames and using them to create maths questions children will recognize and engage with. It also includes example maths questions based on popular games like Minecraft, Roblox, FIFA, and Fortnite and a 5-step method parents can use for improving the maths skills of their child in as little as 15 minutes per day.
