Supercharge Your Child’s
Learning III –
Boost Cognitive Skills and Intelligence to Accelerate Learning
15 September 2022, Thursday
8:30pm – 9:30pm Singapore Time
While effective study strategies and revision techniques can be extremely helpful in raising school results and performance, without robust cognitive skills critical to supporting learning and strategy application, results may still be suboptimal. Some of these core cognitive skills essential for learning success include working memory, attention stamina, impulse inhibition, cognitive flexibility and fluid reasoning.
These “unconscious” skills serve as our “mental muscles” supporting the brain’s processing of information as we listen to a teacher or read a passage to comprehend and acquire new knowledge. Our cognitive skills influence our intelligence, defined as the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly and comprehend complex ideas. Boosting our cognitive skills can hence bring us tremendous benefits, not only by accelerating our ability to learn, but also increasing our intelligence and problem-solving abilities.
Our brains can be exercised and improved at any age, as research on neuroplasticity has shown. However, the early years offer an exceptionally unique opportunity of rapid brain growth that should be exploited maximally.
Attend this webinar to:
- Understand core cognitive skills like working memory and cognitive flexibility, and how they serve as brain foundations critical for learning and intelligence development
- Learn about the neuroscientific principles that guide successful brain training through the different ages
- Take home brain-boosting strategies to help your child accelerate learning and increase intelligence
