We’re finishing up our focus on assistive technology and tools to help increase your attention and concentration with this last article covering brain games. Whether you’re on a desktop monitor, laptop or mobile phone, these games can get you stimulated and keep your brain sharp.
Any game even somewhat challenging “trains” the brain to learn something new. It’s introducing material you may never have seen or thought of before and bringing it to the forefront of your mind. These games are designed to strengthen cognitive skills, from retaining information to being able to pay attention better in different scenarios. Adults and children who have working memory deficits can benefit from these games to keep their brain active the entire time without dosing off or thinking of something else.
The use of technology to enhance learning is an effective approach for many children and adults alike. People with learning disabilities often experience greater success when they are allowed to use their strengths to work through their challenges.
