Video Game May Help Kids Learn Signs Of Stroke

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - New research suggests children who play educational video games may retain important lessons while having fun.

Researchers in New York City observed a group of 9 and 10-year-olds playing an instructional video game called 'Stroke Hero' about how to respond if someone is having a stroke.

Afterwards more than a third of the children were able to identify the signs of stroke and said they'd call 911 if they saw someone having symptoms.

The children also remembered what to do when they were tested 7 weeks later.
