Lumosity Education Access Program (LEAP) Application Survey
If you'd really like to get into the Lumosity program, here is the application form to get into it. Here's info from the press release. This is a cool app that is supposed to improve many parts of cognition. I have it on my list to try and it is very interesting to me. Here's the link and some info:
“Preliminary results from the Spring 2012 semester found that students who trained with Lumosity improved more on a battery of online cognitive assessments than students who did not train. Additionally, effects were dose-dependent; engaging in more Lumosity training led to greater improvements on the assessments. Insights from the 2012-13 LEAP academic year on the effects of cognitive training on students’ real-world academic outcomes are forthcoming.
Educators are increasingly interested in enhancing their students’ cognitive and behavioral factors. More than 75 percent of all teachers who applied for the Fall 2013 LEAP semester believe training with Lumosity will promote: cognitive enhancement, increased ability to pay attention, improved self-confidence, and improved general attitude toward learning.”
- Lumosity Website – This is where you sign up for lumosity. While I like the tool, it bothers me that they don't have links to the studies they quote on their homepage – just some impressive looking charts, etc. Be careful about claiming it without linking to it.
