Can Brain Training help with Education

Last updated: 10 Sep, 2014

Yes. Brain training teaches kids and students how to learn better. Teachers, students and schools can use SMART brain training cross curriculum to improve IQ and also improve a range of "relational skills" including better vocabulary skills, improved memory retention and brain processing speed. Education interventions based on training relational skills have been shown in published research to impact intellectual ability scores (measured using the WISC) and independent research into relational skills have shown that our ability to understand abstract relations corresponds to scores on standard IQ tests (e.g., the WAIS and Kaufman’s brief intelligence test). <br> The identification of relational skills as the basic building blocks of intelligence means that educational efforts will be more effective, so that all children including disadvantaged children can reach their educational potential and adults can reach beyond their assumed intellectual limits.
