THE EFFECT OF USING ELECTRONIC GAMES ON PRESCHOOL CHILDREN’S PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS

Studies concerned with the effect of playing showed that playing generally has positive effects on children’s development. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the effect of playing with computer tablet games on the development of problem solving skills, among preschool children. We hypothesized that significant differences will be detected between the experimental group that plays with computer tablets, and the control group that does not play with them. 26 children (17 girls & 9 boys) from low income background between 4 to 6 years of age participated in this research. Four subscales derived from the British Ability Scale (visual perception, copying, perceiving differences, and relationship perception) were used with both participating groups. Each participant in the experimental group was given a HUAWEI Media Pad 7 Lite after the pre-test was conducted. The results overall showed no significant differences between the experimental and the control group, except on the visual perception ability, where the control group showed significant higher visual perception abilities than the experimental group did.
