As the children of today grow up in a world where information is literally at their fingertips, it becomes more important than ever for them to develop the cognitive skills to navigate this new environment. However, today’s children are also much more comfortable with digital learning tools than any cohort before. It’s no wonder that computerized game-based learning tools are entering the education space in a big way. The SkillAngels Cognitive Learning Program from Edsix Brainlab is one such tool that strengthens children’s cognitive skills and helps them understand and analyse problems better. In a trial conducted over one year with over 9400 participating schoolchildren across India, we found that those using the SkillAngels program showed an improvement of roughly 50% in their cognitive skill scores over the course of one year. We believe these skills are transferable and children using the SkillAngels program will also show improved academic performance.
