WORKING MEMORY TRAINING: Working Memory can be trained!
Students with learning difficulties were randomly assigned to one of two groups. Half of the students trained with Jungle Memory (Training group), while the other half received extra tutoring (Active Control).
Pre Training: I measured their working memory, IQ, and grades. Students in the Training and Active Control were at the same level. This is important because it means that any improvements the student makes is the result of the training and not because they started at different levels.
Post Training: The Training group showed improvements in IQ, working memory, and most importantly, in grades. The increase in their grades was the equivalent of a C to a B, and a B to an A in just 8 weeks!
