Abstract

Understanding the significance of education is crucial when it comes to advancing a country’s overall economy. Ensuring that a country’s people can embark on their educational journey at a young age is what determines how literate that country is. But when the majority of people living there can’t afford to even receive basic education, then the economy is very likely to plummet as more kids begin working rather than learning. This is where educational videos and video games come into play since they can substitute as a teacher since these virtual learning methods can provide kids the basic education they couldn’t afford. Making these learning methods widely accessible will benefit the world’s economy as a whole since even developed countries can find this useful for the people who are in poverty and can’t afford college. In the end, it is those countries with the lowest literacy rates which will benefit the most from virtual video games and other virtual teaching methods since any help would be a blessing for those people.
