CHICAGO, IL (August 28, 2012) – Learning Enhancement Corporation (LEC) announced that BrainWare Safari has received an Academics’ Choice Mind Spring Award. The award recognizes the best thinking-based products on the market. Academics’ Choice evaluates products using a panel of product-appropriate judges, including scientists, educators, parents, and students. To receive an award, products must be deemed to have robust educational value and to strengthen cognitive skills.
Reviewers for the Academics’ Choice Awards use the program as it is intended to be used. One of the reviewers for BrainWare Safari commented, “This popular product lives up to its claims. After using BrainWare Safari every day for 4 weeks, playing 60 minute sessions, I began to notice a significant improvement in my child’s listening and problem-solving skills. Amazing!”
BrainWare Safari incorporates clinically based techniques and video-game technology into a software program that develops the capacity to learn and think for users aged 6 to 106. In published research, users improved their cognitive ability by an average of over 4 years in 12 weeks of using the program. The 41 cognitive skills developed in BrainWare Safari are grouped into six areas: Attention, Memory, Visual Processing, Auditory Processing, Thinking, and Sensory Integration.
“The Academics’ Choice Awards program was founded on the premise that science has proven that we can enhance our cognitive abilities throughout our entire lives, and that is what makes this award so meaningful,” said Betsy Hill, President and Chief Operating Officer of Learning Enhancement Corporation, makers of BrainWare Safari.
BrainWare Safari has previously earned the Software and Information Industry CODiE Award as Best Education Game or Simulation; a Parents’ Choice Award, a Teachers’ Choice for the Family Award; a Mom’s Choice Award; a Distinguished Achievement Award from the Association of Educational Publishers and the Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal of Approval.
