Hi Girls!!

Just for your knowledge about flashing cards on computer monitors.


A lot of people have negative perceptions about TVs and computer monitors when concerning children.
But the reasons are mostly not applicable with today's technology.
In the old days, old TV sets and computer monitors (big chunky ones, known as CRT - cathode ray tube - monitors) produced a lot of radiation, but today's LCD monitors does not have any radiation.
Old computer monitors had low refresh rates, which causes eye-strain with some people if they have to gaze at them for hours.
Today's monitors have much higher refresh rates, and when flashing e-flashcards only require sitting in front of the computer for a few minutes at a time, not a few hours.

TV itself does not harm children, but the CONTENT that you should be more concern about.
Programs like those on the Cartoon Network have rapidly changing images which bombard children with stimulation, and watching such programming for a long time may desensitize them to other stimulation, leading even to attention deficit disorder.

So e-flash cards for babies or children are OK.

Hope my comment answers your Qs on computer monitors or TVs.

Hi, I'm a Shichida parent and looking for flashcards materials for my son.
I came across the website www.rightbraineducationshop.com
Can anyone tell me if the eflashcards from this website can be downloaded and printed out? I will prefer to make physical flashcards for him rather than eflashcards.

Appreciate your response!

This is a long thread dating back 2008.
Just out of curosity, does anyone know the evidence to show that card flashing to young kids helps in their brain development?

Are there any local studies to show that the group which have undergoned the training turned out to be academically brighter than the group which did not?

Hi Princessze,

The http://www.rightbraineducationshop.com is only e-flash cards.

I have also join this website.

Before I join, I used to buy shichida tensei materials. It's very ex!!
So I decided to DIY my own self. It's just too much time wasted.

I am a working mom. So I find that rightbraineducation.com solve my problems.
They have more than 10,000 flash cards. And they are very cheap!!

You should consider joining them. So far I feel they are the best.

Hi All,

After I sent my sons to Heguru, I started to search for eflash card due to limited source physical flash card, i found http://www.rightbraineducationshop.com and i felt so happy that it consists of >10,000 flash cards. Unfortunately, http://www.rightbraineducationshop.com is not available in Malaysia since June 2012, so, I have to either buy the physical flash cards or DIY the flash card. Ends up i decided to DIY the flash card due to limited source of buying the ready made flash card. I agreed that it is really really time consuming to make flash card, luckily i have my maid to do for me after i print them out.

I tried the flash card using computer, but i found that my sons didn't really interested on using computer, they prefer I flash them with physical card. I noticed that if i flash them with physical card, they hear my voice when i read it out, they see my reaction and there is interaction between my sons and me. But, it use physical flash card, the pronunciation must be very accurate and clear. I think it is depends which method your kids work the best.

Hi EmLi,

I send my kid to Shichida, and i also have friends that send their kids to Heguru.

All of us find it beneficial,

BUT,

the only issue is getting flash cards for Shichida/Heguru to practise with my child.

I have heard from my friends that http://www.rightbraineducationshop.com is now available (Malaysia).

By the way have you check out their new video quite cool!

Hi Viviandress & Nancy,

Thanks for your info. I just get a called from http://www.rightbraineducationshop.com person in charge in Malaysia, it is available in Malaysia now, i am planning to subscribe it. BTW, i would like to ask whether this e-flash card cover a wide range of topic like science, geography, country (flag, building & etc.), culture & etc? After you subscribe this e-flash card, do you get flash card with other topic to increase kids vocabulary?

My sons do not really interested in Linking Memory? How can i make them more interested on it? Is it a must to practice Linking Memory at home?

Thanks.

Hi EmLi,

My kid prefers picture flash cards more than Linking Memory.

I would say go with your child's interest.

But you should still do linking memory, maybe lesser.

jst to share my feeling on SHICHIDA.. during the 2008 time, the school is really very onz.. with seminar and lots of publicity and we feel upbeat with the programs.. but now, with my 2nd kid in the program.. after 1 year plus.. i feel the things taught is 98% similar 3 years back.. website is not updated..notice boards always the same old news..and the downsizing in the school is not very pleasing to parents with lots of renovation outside. and teachers do not seem to be that enthusiast like last time.. maybe it's the teacher or maybe they din get more training.. things seem stagnant.. im looking fwd to the 3-4 yo class programmes which my 1st child benefited a lot..now im in 2yo class.. but on the way there.. i simply dun feel school is putting more effort in improving anymore.. stagnant !
