High School Brain Training - A Successful Pilot
Date:5/26/2010

ogin access to the site's brain games, and each week another brain trainer was added to the program. The program's goal was to examine the student's cognitive skills throughout and following their completion of the brain training program. The students' progress was monitored and reported each week to the pilot manager.

While the brain games were released gradually according to the program stage, the best trainee of the week and the "Challenge" mechanism maintained the inherent students' motivation. Also, the site was functioning as a mini social network where students could contact their classmates via email, and challenge each other to gain cognitive scores in the various games.

Pilot results: The results of the teachers' questionnaires indicate a general 11% improvement in concentration, 17% improvement in the students' persistence, 11% improvement in their relative scores as compared to the class. The student's improvement was especially apparent in Computer science and Math. The students' questionnaires indicate a 6% improvement in concentration and a 22% improvement in understanding.

These encouraging results support the theories relating to cognitive training and learning skills, relating to memory improvement and concentration improvement as a result of brain training - showing the value of incorporating brain training games into syllabus to improve student's achievements. The students enjoy the learning experience and the opportunity to succeed in their studies, while the educators are able to follow the students' progress and recommend a brain training program to maximize their achievements.

Based on this activity, the Reali school and MIND360 will conduct a larger scale pilot for the junior high students. In addition, a new pilot using '/>"/>
