Strengthening Cognitive Abilities
The games in ACTIVATE™ strengthen a child’s cognitive skills by offering a wide range of cognitive tasks, like memorizing sequences, completing patterns, task-switching, and sorting objects into categories. Originally developed to help improve cognitive function for children with ADHD, the programs were so effective in helping students of all capabilities improve their cognitive function they are now being made available to all children.
Data is collected with every click in every game as well as from the built-in assessments. This total data capture means every interaction is tracked and measured for accurate progress reporting. ACTIVATE™ is an adaptive technology – it quickly moves children through exercises in areas of their strength, keeps them working longer in areas of their weaknesses, and avoids keeping them working on exercises for too long after their maximum gain has been reached. The program recognizes when the child makes an error, and coaches children in real time how to improve their thinking strategies.
