Neuroscience research shows that low-income students, who now comprise more than half of students in U.S. public schools, are at risk for problems with executive functions and other skills critical for learning. To meet the growing demand for interventions that address these skills, Kiko Labs today announces several enhancements to Kiko’s Thinking Time, including new games and accessibility on iOS devices, Android tablets and desktop browsers.
The latest release includes 15 new games, bringing the total number of games to 25. Together, the adaptive games include thousands of questions that train executive functions — memory, inhibition, focus, and cognitive flexibility — as well as reasoning and spatial skills. In addition, several new exercises incorporate Common Core-aligned math content, such as counting and cardinality, while reinforcing cognitive skills.
Kiko’s Thinking Time is now available for the iPads, Android tablets and desktop browsers.
