Scottish Research on Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training for Math Education

 

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!

Handheld Learning Presentation Proposals Due Soon!!

handheldlearning 2008

On Friday, May 30, to be exact. I’m still working on mine, how about you?

So far, all indications are that Handheld Learning 2008 is going to be the best handheld learning conference yet. The list of keynotes is first-class, and it’s worth attending the conference just to see them. However, I’m mostly looking forward to see what will happen when 1,000 people or so all have access to the same device (a Nintendo DS) for the duration of the conference.

You can register for the conference here.

 Submit your presentation proposals here.
