Writing this research essay was a very good experience for me. I learned a lot while doing this project in terms of style of writing, requirements of academic writing, paper structure, an organization of information, and validation of information. It took me at least three revisions to come up with the final version of the research essay. I was very cautious not only because this was a graded research essay, but also because the topic I discussed in it is very sensitive. The fact that stakeholders of this research are found in every other home as noted in the research essay i. e.
“ Video games have recently experienced a substantial amount of growth in sales since more than 97 per cent of US adolescents engage in video game frequently” , makes it even more important and put more responsibility on my shoulders to project the right opinion. My concerns and interests are to advocate all such means of learning that are enjoyable and at the same time, effective. Video games qualify as such a means of education as “ it is most efficient way of developing mental skills and the best way to introduce children to computer education. ” Therefore, I carried out detailed research to investigate how it affects children and adults in their personal and social lives.
I revised my paper until I was sure that the paper is suitable for release as it conformed to the standards of academic writing. In the initial phase, I carried out a detailed literature review to see what experts say about the topic. I documented the findings of the literature review in first draft.
In the second draft, I arranged and organized the information in a way that both the negative and positive aspects of playing video games were separately discussed e. g. “ The amount of commitment required can lead to development of new skills or a decline of an individual’ s mental state and ability to maintain a healthy social life. ” In the third and final phase, I critically analyzed the information and concluded the research in such a way that it can be easily understood by everybody.
