Cognitrain is a brain training firm with a goal to revolutionize the way individuals learn by imparting scientifically proven strategies to reach their full learning potential. We live in times where mind power is more essential than muscle power. Today, the real challenge is to keep ourselves updated with the ever-evolving technologies, techniques, and topics in any given field. The skill of learning faster and efficient is taking precedence over grades, many professionals are obliged to learn new technologies and their current area of work is rarely similar to what they have studied formally.
Learning is a life long process and it should not be limited to 16 years of formal education. The formative years must lay the foundation for strong cognitive skills that help an individual steer through life which in turn leads to improvements in self-esteem, self-confidence, and emotional stability. Research has made it evident that our brain can keep developing new abilities throughout our lifetime. Systematic brain training can potentially result in the improvement of a number of cognitive skills including attention, working memory, problem-solving abilities, reading, etc.
Today, though our literacy rates are improving, more than 50% of students in grade five cannot read a grade two text and comprehend it precisely. The solution to this problem is teaching students “how to learn” along with what to learn. Quality and Quantity do not go hand-in-hand and it is time to lay stress on the quality of education. Only when we teach children to learn how to learn can we stop the majority of them from failing in academics and life.
“Education is preeminently a matter of quality, not amount. – Henry Ford”
At Cognitrain, our training programs are created by experts with an extensive focus on developing and strengthening core cognitive skills such as memory, attention, reading, creativity, planning and general learning. Over the course of our comprehensive workshops, students and professionals will be astonished by the depth of content and experience a visibly significant increase in their ability to recall information, organize their information and learn smarter.
