GIVE YOUR CHILD A LEARNING ADVANTAGE!
This fully personalized brain fitness training programme aims to give school-going children a learning advantage through “mental work-outs”. To achieve rapid, enduring results, we use the following programmes to build key mental “muscles” intensively over a 4-month term:
Suitable for students 6 to 18 years of age, SMART™ Moves aims to strengthen a student’s sensory-motor brain fitness and accelerate learning speed using a proven and personalised gym-based programme.
Sensory-motor brain fitness is critical in the classroom whenever a child needs to put pen to paper (e.g. for drawing, colouring and writing), participate in activities with other children or execute any response with a movement element.
During each SMART™ Moves session, your child will participate in a series of movement activities that build gross motor skills and processing speed (including core stability, balance and coordination, motor planning) as well as table-top activities that build fine motor and handwriting skills.
Suitable for students 6 to 18 years of age, SMART™ Vision aims to rapidly improve a student’s visual brain fitness by using a proven and personalised programme comprising gym-based exercises, table-top as well as computer-based visual activities. Our visual brain fitness helps us to quickly and accurately interpret the information received through our eyes, especially important in the classroom. Having strong visual brain fitness helps students to excel in “visual” subjects such as Math, geometry and have neat, effortless handwriting.
During each SMART™ Vision session, your child will participate in a series of movement activities that strengthen eye movement speed and accuracy, visual spatial awareness as well as table-top and computer-based activities that enhance visual perception, visual-motor integration and visual memory.
Suitable for students 6 to 18 years of age, SMART Listening™ utilises the Fast ForWord® family of products, proven for its effectiveness at MIT, Stanfordand Harvard Universities. The result of more than 30 years of neuroscientific research, this software has helped over 2 million students boost their auditory, reading and language skills for improved scholastic performance. Children who have been trained on Fast ForWord® have displayed improved auditory, language and reading skills and increased self-esteem in and out of the classroom.
Fast ForWord® is a computer-based product that accelerates learning by developing Learning MAPS™, key cognitive skills comprising Memory, Attention, Processing, and Sequencing. Through Frequency, Adaptivity, Simultaneous development, and Timely motivation, the FAST Power Learning Formula™, language, reading and comprehension skills improve.
Suitable for students 6 to 18 years of age, SMART™ Focus utilises the educationally proven computer-based programmes, Play Attention and Jungle Memory, to build attention and working memory brain fitness.
Play Attention is developed from NASA technology and certified by the Space Foundation. It uses feedback-based technology to build skills that strengthen our attention brain fitness. This is crucial to support all areas of learning, impacting a student’s focus and organisation, as well as behaviour, academics and social interactions.
Jungle Memory builds working memory through the use of adaptive technology and interactive games. Working memory is used to remember important information as well as to work with it; e.g. when doing mental Math, we need to remember a set of numbers and simultaneously complete the calculation. Students who use Jungle Memory have seen improvement in IQ, classroom performance, self-esteem and behaviour.
Emotional Intelligence is about using your emotions to guide you through the world. It is about being able to use your own knowledge of emotions to make decisions, to calm yourself down, to manage anger and conflict, to help you in your relationships with people, to know what is happening in social situations, and to assist you in many aspects of life where you or another person is involved.
SMART™ EQ aims to build emotional intelligence in children aged 8 to 12 years old through proven methodologies based on the successful Learned Optimism and Aussie Optimism programmes from USA and Australia.
SMART™ EQ includes fun games, group discussions and role plays where students learn how to identify their feelings, as well as techniques and strategies to manage their angers and fears, generate helpful positive thoughts, communicate effectively and solve problems. By building up their emotional intelligence in a structured manner, children become more motivated and engaged students, enjoy better relationships, and are happier and more resilient.
SMART™ English is an integrated programme comprising of desk-top instruction based on MOE-aligned syllabus, our award-winning multimedia software – Fast ForWord Reading and Reading Assistant and brain fitness training exercises that help accelerate your child’s mastering of the English Language in 4 key areas of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.
Through SMART™ English, students build Memory, Attention, Processing Speed and Sequencing for English on Fast ForWord Reading and Reading Assistant software. At the same time, students also participate in fun physical activities during each session to strengthen their focus, visual tracking and response speed for English learning. Students have fun learning spelling, sight words, vocabulary and reinforcing phonics on the trampoline or alphabet mat. This unique protocol combines components of our successful brain fitness training programme (“bottom-up” approach) with English learning elements (“top-down” approach) to achieve a fit brain while expanding vocabulary, sharpening spelling and developing automaticity in the English language.
