to improve information processing skills
Using recent revolutionary developments of our century in neuroscience, neurogenesis, neuroplasticity and the theory of cognitive modifiability, l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and Compétences R&D Inc. are developing an engaging online training game to enable youth and adults to enhance their information processing skills so that they can more effectively acquire and more efficiently deploy essential digital skills. The training game is being developed according to best practices in gamification and computerized brain training, and will include a pre-test, embedded tests, and a post-test designed to assess information processing gains that can be attributed to training. A web infrastructure and an information management system will be developed for managing the training game and user records. This web platform will give youth and adults free and widespread access to the cognitive skills training game through various digital platforms.
