Cogmed Is Now Easier To Do In Schools
Presenter: Peter C Entwistle, Ph.D. & Charles Shinaver, Ph.D.
Cogmed provides a distinctive amount and quality of empirical evidence for its effectiveness with over 75 peer reviewed published studies, but this training method is now easier to implement in schools. In the last couple of years some large scale school implementations of Cogmed have resulted in our staff developing a number of features that help Cogmed work better in schools. Among those features are the variable protocol (shorter training sessions and fewer days a week of training), fidelity features, built-in generalization measures and Trends reporting which provides schools with the data needed to manage the large scale implantations. Reporting for the district, school, class, and individual student level is now available. Reports include measures of compliance, motivation, and validity. Additionally the Cogmed progress indicator gives schools a measure of generalization to nontrained tasks in the areas of working memory, following instructions and math fluency. The variable protocol allows children to do Cogmed for 25 or 35 minutes a day 3, 4 or 5 days a week. Now Cogmed can fit into school schedules and be managed effectively and efficiently. Attend this webinar to get a grasp of these important changes.
