We have now launched our web based brain training activity site for schools. Actibrain ( is a secure, fun and interesting website packed with mind stretching activities specifically for UK schools. Because it is web-based there is no need to buy any consoles or hardware, it will work with existing PCs and laptops. It has been designed to be viewed comfortably on all screens including the ASUS EeePC minibook and other small screen laptops.
The activities are designed to stimulate and motivate the minds of young people by using a range of activities. Brain Training activities are grouped into 5 categories; numerical, verbal, spatial, memory and logic. Teachers can view student progress via the teacher console area.
Recent research by LTS in Scotland (2007), BECTA (2005), Futurelab (2005, 2006) and ELSPA (2006) has made progress in demonstrating how these emerging theories on game based learning are beginning to find themselves embedded in ‘chalk-face’ contexts in schools throughout the UK.
Actibrain (actibrain.co.uk) embraces the theories that game based learning can help in many areas of the curriculum and can make the school day more interesting and varied. We recommend that the children do Actibrain daily for 10 to 15 minutes. Morning registration time is an ideal time. The activities can also be played in practice mode as golden time treats or at home.
