Abstract

Playing is one of the most important activities in childhood generally. The child begins his contact with the outside world through playing, and it is the first way of learning and experience for the child. Since the end of the last century, specifically with the technological and digital development that humanity has witnessed, the concept of playing for children has witnessed a fundamental transformation with the entry of electronic games as part of the children's play system. The current paper aims to explore the effect of electronic games on children's intelligence. Several studies have been discussed that dealt with the effect of electronic games on various aspects of intelligence such as emotional, social, bodily-kinesthetic, logical-mathematical and linguistic intelligence. There are positive effects of electronic games that have been achieved such as developing thinking, problem solving and arithmetic skills. But on the other hand, there are many negative effects of electronic games that directly affect children's intelligence such as social effectiveness, physical fitness and language abilities. In this paper, both positive and negative effects of electronic games on the multiple intelligences of the child are discussed
