Digital Early Grade Literacy Games for Developing Countries: A Guidebook for Developers

Digital games can support young children with direct instruction that is engaging, targeted at their individual learning needs, and adaptive to their learning progress. Digital games can also provide practice in basic literacy skills that hold children’s attention and leads to a key reading instruction goal – automaticity (the ability to read automatically). Once children can look at text and read without having to slow down to sound out words, they will enjoy reading and will therefore read more, which will lead to improved reading skills. Once children are reading, fiction and non-fiction can become more engaging when text is linked to games that make reading more engaging and that help to build comprehension skills.
