Moments like these make me feel like we’re all hanging out and joking around, I can picture my friends pushing and nudging each other jokingly fighting about who gets to sit on the couch and who has to sit on the floor, acting like a bunch of children. These friends are my chosen family, I couldn’t ask for better people in my life. Corey, Johnny, Jack, are amazing people who all have jobs, hobbies, and go to school. My best friend and boyfriend Ethan, who I met 5 years ago on Xbox live and have met in person, has helped me through so many rough points in my life, we have had our struggles but always work through them just like any good friend would. We are not lazy, we have amazing friends whom we talk to everyday, and we do not live society’s stereotype.
For example, when students are studying for a test they will incorporate the use of flashcards. Using the flashcards exposes the child to the information repeatedly until it is memorized. While playing these games, the player learns the patterns of games through repetition. By doing this they are unconsciously learning to act in the same way as the game. In March of 2014, the Center for Study of Violence at Iowa State participated in a study where they followed over 3,000 children over a three year period who played video games.
The present study examined the connection between video games and aggressive behavior. This study, in which repeated observations of the same variable over a high school period of time occurred, with the participation of 300 9th grade students (150 male, 150 female) from Washington Irving High School. Students were, randomly selected; to participate in the study for their time spent in high school, from 9th through 12th grade, and will be asked to keep a log of the hours spent playing violent video games and their mood before and after playing. Researchers will visit the participants’ school once every four months and have them fill out a questionnaire to see how students reacted to situations that occurred in school (e.g. # of fights).
For example, thirty-one percent of adolescents play video every day and another twenty-one percent plays games for about five days a week. What is most concerning is the fact that almost half of the population plays violent, plus five out of ten play violent video games (Adachi, Willoughby, 2011). Both the articles that are mention both have a connection to the perspective theory of conflict and symbolic interactionism when being exposed to video games it causes a major conflict with others around them. Another example was the columbine shooting the shooters were teen boys and had been exposed to video games giving them that opportunity to learn on what they are play. By playing video games it cause danger to society and become highly aggressive (Adachi, Willoughby, 2011).
Each year a new game system, and hundreds of video games are released, and millions of kids go out and buy them and spend hours playing. Video games have a large effect on school performance and time spent with family. Children would prefer to play their games than sit down and talk with their parents (Saleem, 2012). The question is, “Do violent video games influence children to act aggressively?” and “Can repetitive killing train a person to be violent himself?” Although the violence in these video games is fictional, research has proven the violence to lead to more aggressive behavior in children. Violent acts depicted in these games allow young children to believe that killing and fighting is acceptable and fun.

Aimee Morlatt Period 6 March 24, 2014 There has been an ongoing debate for many years about the correlation between real-life violence and violent video games. Studies have shown that there is at least some relationship between the two. Some people claim that violent video games do not cause violence.

Technology is a Positive Influence in the Education Field Everywhere you look there are computer games, but it just isn’t the fun computer games anymore, they are making more and more learning programs. I have seen learning programs from the preschool level all the way up to the college level.
