Knowledge Adventure Brings Cognitive Development Tool to K-12
Knowledge Adventure, a developer and publisher of software for education, has inked a deal with Learning Enhancement Corp. to distribute its BrainWare Safari to K-12 schools. LEC's BrainWare Safari takes a gaming approach to build cognitive abilities in young learners.
BrainWare Safari is a cognitive development tool that covers 41 individual cognitive skills (including visual processing, auditory processing, memory, attention, sensory integration, and thinking) using 20 exercises that target multiple skills simultaneously. In the game, kids go on a "learning safari" with a cast of jungle characters through 168 progressively more challenging levels.
BrainWare Safari retails for $349 for the single-user version. It includes the game itself, a user guide, a BrainWare Safari Journal, and an assessment system (called the BrainWare Safari Behavioral Rating Scale) for evaluating cognitive development before and after using the system.
