Applied Principles of Neuroscience for Enduring Change
Fast Forword enduring results are based on the premise that the brain is plastic and capable of creating or modifying existing neural connections for more efficient learning. Neuroscience has determined that four components need to applied for lasting neurological change
Four key components that work together for lasting neural change in brain function:
- Frequency and Intensity--Neuroscience research demonstrates that completing a set of learning tasks in a frequent, intense timeframe accelerates learning.
- Adaptivity—Exercises adapt with each student response to individual skill levels and responses, keeping students continuously challenged but not frustrated.
- Simultaneous Development—Exercises develop major cognitive and reading skills simultaneously to produce lasting improvements in learning.
- Timely Motivation—Tiered rewards are designed to maximize motivation from start to finish.
Fast Forword appliesthese four key components together (similarity to how one would take tennis or piano lessons frequently with continual practice to improve) to effect significant changes in brain functions. The results are lasting gains in the ability to learn in a short period of time. The program is based on over 35 years of neuroscience research that has determined this model is the best way to learn.
