Girls are more like skill games, then, games-adventures, games related to the fight or competition, and the latest go games-strategy. The lesser evil, according to the society, represent strategic games. They allow the player to identify with the leader. The main advantage, which the researchers note is the development of the skill of systems thinking. Note the main positive aspects of computer games the other subjects. The so-called puzzle games contribute to the development of formal logical thinking. Sports and conveyor (“Tetris”) games develop sensory-motor coordination, concentration. Any teacher will confirm that the development computer will give a qualitative leap in the development of knowledge. And fun because it “got smarter” experiencing, first of all, the child.

Among the many educational programs for children it is possible to allocate first of all: the program of teaching foreign languages, encyclopedia of computer with images in an entertaining way teaches the child a variety of knowledge, linguistic games, like "Scrabble" or "Field of dreams", educational games that teach children to paint and tell about the properties of colors and shades, or teach account, the basics of arithmetic, or familiar with the concept of shapes names of geometric shapes, or develop memory, logical thinking: computer techniques "eliminate excess" and "add missing", etc Modern computer figures produced the Linux operating system.

The computer educational games at first glance is unlimited. However, let's see what significantly new can give the teacher a computer compared to a teacher-man.
First, training on the computer — this is primarily a game. And that is not very interesting for a child in itself, is extremely attractive on the screen. Thus, for a child, learning with computer programs, there is extra motivation.
Second, a child playing in educational game, starting very early to understand that the objects on the screen are not real things but only their designations. In various games the characters or symbols of real objects are becoming more complicated, becoming more and more generalized and less resemble surrounding objects. Thus, children starts to develop so-called sign function of consciousness, that is, the understanding that there are multiple levels of reality — real objects, pictures, diagrams, words and equations, and, finally, our thoughts that are the most difficult, the perfect level of reality.
Thirdly, not only psychologists, but also parents and teachers noticed that during the lessons on the computer in a child improve memory and attention. Because children's memory is involuntary, children remember only vivid, emotionally charged events or details, and computer programs give digestible material needed brightness and importance, that not only speeds up the memorization, but also makes it more meaningful and lasting.
Fourth, the computer games are of great importance for the development of motor skills of the child, or the formation of motor coordination and the coordination of joint activities of the visual and motor analyzers. In all games, from the simple to the complex, children need to learn to press your fingers on certain keys. It develops fine muscles of the hands — fine motor skills. In addition, the actions of the hands must be combined with visible action on the screen. So, quite naturally, without additional special training develops the necessary hand-eye coordination.
Fifth, working on the computer, the child learns a new, more simple and fast method of obtaining and processing information. This skill speeds up and optimizes the process of thinking, helps not only learn more, but also better to understand the new material.
Thus, the interest generated by games on the computer, it becomes the base for the formation of such important structures as learning motivation, arbitrary memory and attention. The development of these qualities largely provides psychological readiness of the child to the school.
Thus, the computer develops a variety of intellectual skills, and as well helps to be on the level of development of today's youth.
