Cognitive skills — concentration, perception, memory and logical thinking — are mental skills used in the process of acquiring knowledge, and can be considered a child’s tools for learning.

 

Research has shown that cognitive skills are a determining factor of an individual’s learning ability, and according to Oxfordlearning.com, the skills that “separate the good learners from the so-so learners”. In essence, when cognitive skills are strong, learning is fast and easy. When cognitive skills are weak, learning becomes a challenge.

 

The great news is that these weaknesses can be attacked head-on. Through dynamic training and practice, cognitive skills can be improved, strengthened, and enhanced.

 

Edublox Development Tutor is designed to enhance overall cognitive development. The program is ideal to improve the concentration, processing speed, memory and reasoning ability of children who do not experience difficulties with reading, writing or mathematics.

Before building a house, one needs to lay a foundation. Unless there is a strong and solid foundation, cracks will soon appear in the walls, and with no foundations, the walls will collapse. In the same way, one needs to lay a proper foundation before it becomes possible for a child to benefit from a course in reading and spelling.

 

By improving cognitive skills, including focused attention, the interpretation of shapes and spatial relations, and visual, auditory and sequential memory, a solid foundation is laid on which reading and spelling can be built.

 

Different from other reading programs, our reading exercise teaches phonics while building a “visual dictionary” at the same time. Neuroscience has discovered that skilled readers can recognize words at lightning fast speed when they read because the word has been placed in a visual dictionary in the brain.

As with all learning problems, a writing disability can be devastating to a child’s education and self-esteem and can cause major limitations to that child’s career path.

 

Learning is a stratified process, which implies that certain skills have to be mastered first, before it becomes possible to master subsequent skills. One has to learn to count before being able to do mathematics. In the same way, there are skills that a child has to master before being proficient in handwriting. These underlying shortcomings need to be addressed first, before the child’s handwriting can improve.

 

Edublox Writing Tutor not only addresses reading and spelling difficulties, but also the underlying shortcomings that interfere with handwriting performance. These include faulty visual perception of letters and words, difficulty in retaining visual impressions and poor motor skills. The child’s problem may also be in cross-modal transfer from the visual to motor modalities.

Math Tutor sets the foundation for grasping mathematics. We achieve this by teaching your child:

 

  • Foundational skills:
    • Researchers consider visual perceptual ability, and particularly visual memory, to be amongst the skills that are significantly related to mathematics achievement. Other skills include focused and sustained attention, sequential and working memory, and logical thinking, which makes problem solving possible.

 

  • Mathematical skills:
    • There are many things in mathematics that the learner must learn to do, like, for example, the skills of counting, of adding and subtracting, of multiplication and division.

 

  • Knowledge:
    • There is much in math that one simply has to know and therefore has to learn, for example many terms, definitions, symbols, theorems and axioms. These are all things that the learner must know, not things that he must know how to do. A child, who does not know what a sphere is, will have to guess when confronted by six objects and the question, “Which of the above objects have the same shape as a sphere?”

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Edublox Online Tutor is an online platform that houses a range of products to improve various aspects of learning, including Development Tutor, Reading Tutor, Writing Tutor and Math Tutor. The exercises are designed to encourage regular and continuous learning, just like one would visit the gym regularly to improve overall fitness. A maximum of 30 sessions can be purchased per month.

Our team has done extensive research on learning, learning principles and brain development, and created renowned learning tools used by parents, teachers and in our clinics across the globe over a period of 30+ years. Edublox Online Tutor embodies our combined knowledge and experience for the digital age.

 

Edublox Online Tutor addresses foundational learning skills, and does not teach processes, strategies or techniques. The difference between these can be explained by using the game of basketball as an example. In order to be a basketball player, a person first has to master the foundational skills, e.g. passing, dribbling, defense, and shooting. Only after that can he be taught strategies or techniques. Edublox Online Tutor develops and automates the foundational skills of reading, spelling, writing, mathematics and the skills required in the learning of subject matter.

Edublox Online Tutor can benefit any child aged between 7 and 13. It can help gifted learners to improve their learning skills to a very high degree while it can also be used to help learners overcome learning obstacles and reach their full potential. Edublox Online Tutor is effective for a variety of learning difficulties, including dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADD/ADHD.

The programs do require a certain degree of supervision by parents and teachers, as some exercises require interactive inputs from a real person. A good example is when a parent checks if a learner reads a word correctly from the screen.

Edublox Online Tutor will assess and track learners’ development on each exercise and will progress them to the next level once a set standard has been reached. Each learner will receive constructive and encouraging feedback as they progress to keep them motivated and parents will also receive a separate report that will keep them updated on their child’s progress and overall results.

No, Edublox Online Tutor is not exclusively intended for children with learning difficulties. It can also be used to improve the learning and reading and math abilities of children who have no problems at all.

 

One should consider that we do not only provide athletics training to children and adults who are uncoordinated. We also take the talented ones, and through judicious training and exercise, we are able to turn them into great athletes. The same applies on the mental plane. If we take the talented, intelligent and creative children and expose them to Edublox Online Tutor training, we will be able to turn them into great mental athletes.

Your child will discover new worlds and characters, and will be able to collect interesting and wonderful creatures while collecting Educoins along the way. The interface of Edublox Online Tutor has been developed by a leading children computer interface specialist, with user experience inputs from a team of children to ensure that the learning environment is entertaining and an overall enjoyable experience.

Yes, the platform is safe to use and does not pose an online security threat.

School results define our success. Annually, since 2010, we have been requesting Edublox clients, long-term and new, to complete an online survey to help us measure our performance. In our latest survey of 2015 the key question, “Did your child’s academic performance improve at school?” received a 94% positive rating, up from 89% in 2013.

 

We have also documented over 580 testimonials, case studies, reviews and research studies, covering Edublox clients of all age groups, from all over the world, at various stages of implementation, and for various needs — from improving the cognitive skills of children without learning difficulties to overcoming dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and ADD/ADHD. A number have been posted on this site.

After about 15 to 20 hours on the program you may notice improvement in some non-academic areas. It may be that the learner is able to organize their work better, is more attentive in class, or is able to express themselves more easily. At first you may not be sure whether this is the result of Edublox or not.

 

After about 30 to 40 hours on the program you should see some significant improvements in the learner’s academics. The learner might remember more of what was said in class, spend less time to complete homework, study less but maintain the same marks for tests and exams, or attain higher (sometimes much higher) marks for tests and exams. At this point one usually starts seeing an improvement in self-esteem.

 

It must be noted, however, that improvement is seldom gradual. When improvement becomes noticeable, it is usually sudden. After this initial — and usually clearly visible — intellectual jump, it frequently happens that the learner finds himself on a plateau again, followed by another leap forward. This pattern can repeat itself many times.

 

The above scenario could be described as a “staircase effect”. However, one may occasionally also see a “snowball effect”, meaning that the initial progress is slow but as the learner continues, his progress accelerates.

It is wise to continue with the selected program until the learner is at least one year ahead of his grade level in his area of difficulty. The minimum time that is required to achieve this is about one year, but it can take up to two years if the learner has severe learning problems.

 

If one discontinues the program before the foundational skills of reading, spelling, writing and math have been thoroughly automatized, there is the danger of a relapse. On the other hand, once the foundational skills have been automatized and the learner is clearly no longer behind in his reading, spelling, writing, and math, the problem will not return if the program is discontinued.
