We can not use or learn specific abilities such as listening, speaking, reading, writing, computing or inferringLearning disabilityIn the field of the latest brain science research, various learning methods are studied to improve the skills of children with reading disturbance and computing disorders. Methods for early detection of problems of language ability from brain waves of newborn babies have also been developed, and if practicalized, not only can learning disabilities be improved but also the possibility of improving academic ability of children without problems is possessed ... apparently ...

◆ Reading and writing and language skills

In the English-speaking world, the moment that inspiration was obtained is called "Aha! Experience(Ah experience) "is called. Rutgers UniversityInfancy Studies Lab (Childhood Learning Research Institute)ofApril BenasichDr. is conducting a research called "Instant Aha!" Which allows pseudo-aware experiences to be recognized by specific frequencies and tones. Instant Aha for infants 6 months old! From the brain waves when you let him experience, "It is possible to measure that you are perceiving inspiration". The brains of neonates and early childhood brains can perceive sound and become a fundamental process indispensable for understanding language and form the basis of reading and writing skills. Therefore, if there is a delay in response time to frequency and tone, it can be judged that the brain does not have a normal response to sound.

I usually do not know whether there is speech impairment in the brain until 3 to 5 years old, but instant Aha! He can predict the problem at 6 months of age. In other words, early discovery of infant's future language problems gives us the possibility to correct brains in the middle of growth. Moreover, applying this research also has the possibility of further improving the basic language ability of young children with problem-free brains.

In a joint program of Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology led by Professor John Gabrieli Neuroscience, a new examination method of reading disturbance and dyslexia that combines standard examination methods of the brain and genetic testing has been proposed . As with EEG test at Rutgers University, this method also has the possibility to be able to treat the early stage language disorder, and if it is realized it can also contribute to the improvement of academic ability of general children.

◆ "number sense" development tool
Stanislas dehane, a neuroscientist at the French National Institutes of Health, is a person who studies early childhood mathematical disorders. Mr. Dehane calls "the ability to recognize a number" that it has since the birth of a newborn baby as "number sense", and children born with a number sensation missing can successfully calculate in the future I will explain it is gone.

Mr. Dehane is studying ways to develop the number sense of school late attendance, "Number RaceI devised a game that improves the calculation ability of " Number Race published in open source has been translated into 8 languages, and it is downloaded from more than 20,000 educators including research institutes supported by the Finnish government.

◆ Self control
Ability to supervise cognitive ability, attention and self-control is "Execution functionIt is thought that if the ability to execute is excellent, the probability of success in schools and society will increase. You can test this self-discipline and execution function as "Marshmallow ExperimentIn a room where only one marshmallow was placed, "I will leave the room for only 15 minutes, but if I can endure without eating marshmallows before I return, I will give another marshmallow" Telling them to test whether the children can maintain their self-discipline.

Marshmallow experiment conducted in 1972 is an experiment showing the relevance and importance of execution function and social outcome, but proved that the execution function can develop skills is "Tools of the MindEducational curriculum. It is a curriculum "Run tasks while resisting temptation", it is possible to improve the memory (working area) of the brain and flexible thinking ability.

Also, educational books prevalent in the United States "Tiger Mother"Amy Chua recommends" music education "such as letting children play violins and pianos. The neuroscientist team led by Dr. Nina Kraus of Northwestern University claims that the performance of the instrument improves attention, work area and self-control, not intelligence.

◆ Alert against hype
Many scientists are examining "hype advertising" tools that confuse people because many science-based learning tools and training are on the horizon. The assertion that if you ask classical music, your head gets betterMozart effectAlthough it is called,Denial by Harvard researchIt is being done. It is "performance of musical instruments" that can influence the brain in music education, and it seems that it will not get better if you just listen to music.

Also published in Journal of Child Psychology (Child psychology journal)Meta analysisAccording to the results, the famous language disability training tool "Fast ForWord"Reading disturbanceI know that it was not effective for children with. Learning tools that claim to have other scientific grounds are flooded with the world, but it is necessary to pay attention not to check the effectiveness just by saying "famous learning tool".
