Cognitive Online Games: Learning in adolescence

The Blakemore Lab, in partnership with a maths teachers and an educational software developer, are running a new study into learning in adolescence and are looking for schools in and around London to partner with.

This project is investigating whether playing online educational games (Cognitive Online Games) can improve young people’s (aged 10-18) reasoning skills. The skills we are studying are relevant to mathematics and the results of this study will contribute to a growing evidence base regarding when the brain is most able to learn certain types of information, with potential implications for mathematics education.
