CogniFit launches a new online platform to help educators improve quality of learning by training specific cognitive abilities
CogniFit, key vendor in the global K-12 testing and assessment market, introduces CogniFit for Education, a new web-portal for teachers to assess, train, and monitor cognitive skills involved in the learning processes.
|The CogniFit for Education platform is a neurocognitive assessment and brain training program designed to help educators and teachers assess and track student's cognitive progress through fun brain games.|
CogniFit has been working with schools and education centers around the world to develop this new solution and make sure its answers to the most pressing needs of educators. The aim is for this brain based learning platform to provide teachers with relevant information on a weekly basis in order to provide them with a tool for better learning experience. Teachers receive automatically a detailed report of their students' cognitive abilities after completing the initial assessment and the different regimen and exercises available online. The initial feedback on the platform also helps the teachers better adapt their teaching strategies during the year instead of waiting for test results to see the effectiveness of their education. This information also helps the teacher understand where each student may need extra help and personalize and humanize the relation with each student on a deeper level. For example, a student with a low inhibition or focus may have a harder time paying attention in class, or a student with low scores processing speed may need an extra minute to understand the written instructions on a test. By being aware of it, a teacher will use this information and improve the results.
CogniFit's web and mobile exercises are designed by an international team of scientists, neurologists, and psychologists who investigate and combine the latest discoveries on the brain with advanced adaptive algorithms and big data analytics. For over 15 years, CogniFit has been developing personalized brain fitness programs through scientific validation with leading institutions and peer-reviewed publications.
Today a major vendor in the cognitive assessment and training market, CogniFit offers its programs to companies in various verticals, such as healthcare, education, research, health and wellness, driving, and human resources.
