I came across some interesting work that has been done in Scottish schools with Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training. Following a trial study using the Brain Training software on a DS with three Primary 6 classes from schools in Dundee, a large-scale experiment was done with 32 classes in schools across Scotland (16 classes got the DS with Brain Training, the other 16 did not. Initial findings (however vague yet) seem to indicate some interesting results. The results will be shared at a seminar at the Scottish Learning Festival on 25th September, 2008. I for one am interested in seeing what the researchers found!
