Examining how social interaction shapes game play, and vice versa, may expand our understanding on how and why games foster engagement or learning in children with dyslexia.

In this paper, researchers examine student-student as well as student-tutor social interactions in the case of a digital game called Words Matter. Their findings suggest how Digital-Game Based Learning (DGBL) may provide dyslexic children with new opportunities to boost self-confidence, and be supported in school.
