E-brain training

Next week on SharpBrains they’ll be publishing a full interview with Martin Buschkühl, one of the researchers who recently published findings on how motivated people engaged in mental exercise had improved problem solving ability in unrelated areas. (See The Telegraph’s article.)

It has to be said that the findings didn’t come as any real surprise, but it will be interesting to hear about his research and ponder how it could benefit Instructional Design.

In a teaser to whet our appetite, Buschkühl comments on the adaptive, complex and transferable aspects of the technology based puzzle he used, stating: “technology, when designed and used well, can expand the realm of the possible.”
