Do you believe in right brain training? Or are we having myths towards many mind enhancement programmes in the market?

I think you really need to do more research.

I have browsed through the websites given. Though all sounds good, I would not make any conclusion for the moment.

Hope to hear more comments from the rest.

My two sons are currently in Igenius. There are a few age groups in the school. The elder one is in the 4-6 age group. There are a lot of exercises for him and he really benefit from it. The younger one is in the 2-3 age group. Basically, I think that it's a waste of time as they are doing the same things for one year already.

Math, Intellectual, Thinking And Mind Training

Hi mommy2bnd,
My son is also attending Igenius, 4 - 6 age group. I agree with you. He benefits from the activities. The 2 - 3 one is really a waste of time.

Brain Hemisphere Research - BHR (Rethinking School)

Postby janejane » Sun Aug 23, 2009 1:53 pm

[Moderator's note: Topics merged.]

Mummies...OK, let's me give you an introduction of Brain Hemisphere Research, the rethinking school that's most happening and gain lots popularity currently.. :love: :roll:

BHR offer Brain Neuro-Development enrichment programmes (English and Chinese) for children from 3 to 6 years old and primary one to six school level.

Their children programmes pioneering work of
Professor Kurt W. Fischer, PhD, Mind, Brain & Education Programme, and Professor Howard Gardner, PhD, Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education serve as the framework for the children curriculum. The philosophy of Multiple Intelligences asserts that every student's blend of competencies produces a unique cognitive profile for that child. Supplementing with Singapore Ministry of Education standards, their students are taught fundamental academic skills and content which they then apply to multifaceted topics that integrate Language Arts, Math, and Social Sciences. They place an emphasis on student performances and leadership skills that build and demonstrate deep understanding of subjects, in contrast to rote learning.

At BHR, children are introduced to innovative
Children Genius and Leading Minds programmes.
Fundamental to all their programmes is the belief in and promotion of creative problem solving and lateral thinking techniques.

They posted lots of live videos on the web that
you can see kids learning in the class LIVE!
