A Fundamentally Different Approach to Learning.
How It Works:
The ACTIVATE™ Program is Composed of Three Parts That Work In Unison to Improve the Core Cognitive Functions in all Children.
3 Parts of the ACTIVATE™ Program
Our sophisticated software has been developed to teach basic skills, while the child is having fun. Our games enhance the child’s ability to easily switch tasks, memorize sequences, categorize items, and develop thinking strategies.
The program recognizes a child’s strengths and weaknesses and can detect when a child makes an error. The program provides coaching and independent thinking prompts to aid the child in correcting his error. The beginning sessions are short and easy to master and combined with the structured physical activity component to maintain interest and enthusiasm. The difficulty level is adjusted up or down every 10-15 seconds, according to the child’s abilities.
Physical Exercise is a vital component of the C8 Sciences ACTIVATE™ program. The program consists of individual athletic activities as well as group or team games and athletic challenges with varying degrees of difficulty.
The games start out simple, and as the participants learn the athletic skills required to achieve success, the activities get more challenging and complex. Games such as soccer, volleyball and basketball teach team cooperation and social skills, while developing physical stamina and athletic skills. The program comes with a detailed handbook with instructions for implementing the program into your physical education curriculum. Jumping rope, martial arts, throwing and catching a ball and juggling are individual activities included in the physical exercise component for the child who might not be ready for participation in a group activity or group sport.
The National Institutes of Health has developed a “toolbox” of cognitive assessments designed to measure cognitive growth. ACTIVATE™ utilizes three of the key assessments recommended by the National Institutes of Health.
These assessments are administered to each ACTIVATE™ participant at the beginning and the end of their ACTIVATE™ cognitive training program. The three assessments, the Flanker Task, the Working Memory Test, and the Go/ No-Go Test reveal each participant’s measurable growth, individualized results, and the return on your investment. ACTIVATE™ encourages these assessments so educators can analyze the success of the program with the real-time data to back up every step of the way. These cognitive assessments focused on executive skills tell us what children are capable of learning in the future – and what we can do to help.
2 Versions of the ACTIVATE™ Program
C8 Sciences is the only company to offer integrated computer and physical exercises – “cognition cross-training.” ACTIVATE™ for Schools is a comprehensive, advanced learning system designed to enrich the learning capabilities of every student enrolled. While the program is very beneficial for all students, it is especially beneficial for students with ADHD, autism, or other learning deficits. Teachers report improvements in classroom behavior, attention to detail, and classroom participation just weeks after the introduction of the ACTIVATE™ program to their students. Children adapt quickly to the computer-based games and activities, and eagerly look forward to each day’s lesson plan. Educators love the Teacher Dashboard feature! Every student who uses ACTIVATE™ takes the NIH assessments at the beginning and end of their cognitive training course. Real-time data is displayed for each student and reveals individual progress and gives comparisons between participating students and their peers. The schedule is flexible and can be fine-tuned to fit perfectly into your curriculum. The physical exercise program is well-researched and meets most state physical education requirements. The program provides students with a challenging and engaging way to learn the skills they need to be successful in school, and in life!
The ACTIVATE™ Home program is designed to help kids increase their cognitive abilities and overall executive function. The program was originally intended specifically for kids with ADHD and other attention deficit disorders and their parents, but after it was found to make meaningful improvements with children that do not have these disorders we are now making the program available to everyone. The program is flexible and easy to navigate, and can help you enhance your child’s ability to feel a sense of pride and accomplishment both at home and in the classroom. ACTIVATE™ can be used on your electronic device or home computer. The program consists of a series of brain training games and activities that are challenging, educational, and fun! Kids love to play the games that are fine-tuned to help them learn things like sequencing and categorizing. The program recognizes when the child makes an error, and coaches him until he successfully corrects the error and moves on to the next level. The games have delightful characters and graphics, just like other video games, but our games are designed to build your child’s confidence and self-esteem. The physical exercise component can be enjoyed by the whole family. Playing games, exercising, and building athletic skills contribute to the success of the program, and to the well-being of everyone in the family! You will see improvements in your child’s ability to concentrate, complete tasks, and follow directions soon after you sign him up for the program.
Children, their parents, and their teachers have all seen the dramatic results that can be achieved in improving working memory, attention, processing speed and more when using the complete ACTIVATE™ program.
