Startup Releases Brainwave-measuring Application to Track Study Habits
Nervanix, a new education neuroscience startup, has released a new application that monitors student attention levels via an EEF headset as they study and guides them to revisit concepts where they lost focus.
The tool, called Nervanix Clarity, measures users’ attention levels and paces along with them as they do things like navigate a webpage or watch a video. Data is then beamed automatically to its software app, where users--as well as, say, teachers and parents--can review it to help adapt their habits.
The company currently has a patent pending for this new category of learning and instruction, “Attention Adaptivity.”
"Nervanix Clarity is the first in a long line of innovative solutions we’ve designed to apply the exciting advances in neuro-technology to instruction and learning," said founder Adam L. Hall in a statement. "This application will offer students a profoundly better study experience, allowing them to be more efficient and more effective with their time and energy – while at the same time offering teachers, administrators and parents better insight into the minds of their students."
The technology is being demoed at the ISTE 2014 Conference in Atlanta, GA--June 28 to July 1--at booth 3172.
