Statement 2: The article talks about students who played games at home scored less on the collaboration part of the test. I don't know if my own experience agrees with that, as when students are playing games at home, they are often either
1) playing alongside a family member who they take turns and give/receive guidance from
2) playing alone, but on an online platform in a team where they must collaborate with people from across the world.
Yes, maybe they score worse on the PISA test, but surely they are still developing some collaborative skill, possibly in a way that the test didn't detect?
I think that there are different kinds of collaboration and each can't be measured using the same ruler.
