Brain science research has determined that there are four basic principles that need to be applied for lasting learning to take place. These principles are:
FREQUENCY & INTENSITY
Neuroscience research demonstrates that completing a set of learning tasks in a frequent, intense timeframe accelerates learning. Students who train on Fast ForWord experience a high frequency in practice exposure. Specific Fast ForWord training protocols (3 to 5 sessions/week, 30min to 50min/session) are also strongly recommended for optimal benefits.
Tasks must adapt to leaners’ performance levels (individualised) for optimal training benefits. In Fast ForWord, exercises adapt with each key stroke to individual skill levels and responses, keeping students continuously challenged but not frustrated.
Multiple areas should be simulataneouly trained to facilitate connections of networks of neurons that support that function. Neurons that fire together wire together! In Fast ForWord, exercises develop major cognitive and reading skills simultaneously to produce lasting improvements in learning.
Learners need to be motivated in a timely manner for maximum student attention and training results. In Fast ForWord, tiered rewards are designed to maximise motivation from start to finish.
Fast ForWord applies these four key principles to effect significant changes in brain functions that result in lasting learning gains in a short period of time.
