Changing the way we thynk
Thynk uses an electroencephalographic (EEG) headset that can read brainwaves to teach children how to concentrate and develop better focus and self-regulation while playing an adventure game called Skylar’s Run.
The game is designed to challenge children’s cognitive abilities and offer them a safe and fun environment to practice and enhance these skills. With regular use, children can improve their focused attention, manage their impulses, and develop their self-regulation skills, all of which are important for academic success and personal growth.
Shaping The Future Of Improving Focus
While playing Skylar’s Run, children will embark on an adventure through different levels where they will face various challenges. The game’s difficulty will adjust based on the child’s ability to focus, making it a personalized and engaging experience. By using their measuring their attention and self-regulation skills, children can affect the outcome of the game and help Skylar complete missions and earn rewards.
Transferring to the real world
Players will assist Skylar in making rapid decisions, filtering out distractions, and staying focused on the assigned task to propel the runner forward. Moreover, they will have the chance to apply these acquired skills to a distinct environment within a simulated laboratory setting. The valuable skills cultivated through the game can be easily transferred to real-life situations, including paying attention in class, concentrating on homework, or resisting the temptation to engage in conflicts with friends.
Personalizing the experience
Using dynamic modeling, Skylar’s Run’s difficulty adjusts based on the child’s ability to focus, making it a personalized level of challenge. The real-time feedback enables the game to meet your child at their current level, offering an engaging challenge without becoming overly difficult and discouraging them from playing.
This analysis goes beyond a simple evaluation and provides you with a deeper understanding of your child’s attention levels through individualized mission-specific user reports after each completed session, enabling you to make informed decisions about their well-being while also measuring their progress.
