Scientific Learning Offers Free Brain Fitness Exercises

Scientific Learning(R) have joined Google's Literacy Project to provide free learning software, videos, and lessons. The Literacy Project is an online resource for teachers created in collaboration by Google, LitCam and UNESCO's Institute for Lifelong Learning.

As a project team member, Scientific Learning will supply The Literacy Project with "BrainApps(TM)," interactive, challenging brain fitness exercises for students in grades K -- 12. Brain fitness exercises can help develop and strengthen both the cognitive skills and reading skills essential for academic success. In addition, Scientific Learning will also provide videos showing how brain fitness can accelerate learning and classroom activities that guide a student's exploration of their brain.

"Literacy is a challenge that touches all countries. There is a pressing need to share tools and research on how neuroscience principles can help solve the literacy crisis here, and throughout the world," said Robert C. Bowen, chairman and CEO of Scientific Learning. "We are excited to join The Literacy Project to provide our brain fitness tools and research and get it into the hands of more educators around the world."

The Literacy Project is a resource for teachers, literacy organizations and anyone interested in reading and education, created in collaboration with LitCam, Google, and UNESCO's Institute for Lifelong Learning. It includes books, scholarly articles, literacy videos, innovative projects, books and literacy blogs, book clubs and groups, and a customized search engine to find literacy-related documents on the web.
