We are at the center of the game
DIGITAL TURKISH GAMES PLATFORM
Children learn and develop through play. By playing games, children distinguish between the intangible and the tangible, discover the truth and prepare for life, grasp the socio-cultural elements, and build their language and belief values through play. Games play a dominant role in the learning processes where children gain identity and personality. Just like how people eat and drink, games take an important place among the child’s most basic nutrients. Today, we have to see digital games as the main food item.
