How to “Shift the Bell Curve” of your School’s Re­sults – it’s as sim­ple as 123

The Australian Education Reporter - - NEUROSCIENCE AND EDUCATION -

Imag­ine if there was a way to im­prove how well your stu­dents learnt any sub­ject?

Add one in­gre­di­ent, thirty min­utes per day. How would you make it fit so that you could shift the bell curve of re­sults to the right?

Its not chang­ing teach­ing – it changes learn­ing.

No change in cur­ricu­lum con­tent – just in­creases the chances of more of it stick­ing.

A 45-year re­search pedi­gree and 20 years of re­sults prov­ing that ev­ery time this ed­u­ca­tional neu­ro­science pro­gram is im­ple­mented cor­rectly and com­pleted it builds the learn­ing ca­pac­ity of the stu­dents.

When your stu­dents can learn bet­ter, more eas­ily, and faster, your en­tire school re­sults will im­prove – your re­sults “bell curve” will move to the right. In 2016, one NSW pri­mary school had

146 stu­dents across grades 2 to 6 gain an av­er­age 14 months read­ing progress in 7 months’ use of this ed­u­ca­tional neu­ro­science pro­gram – dou­ble what you would nor­mally ex­pect. Lever­ag­ing teach­ing skills with neu­ro­science

This pri­mary school used Fast

For­word123, a unique 3-com­po­nent, ev­i­dence-based method for in­creas­ing stu­dents’ ca­pac­ity to learn where English is the lan­guage of in­struc­tion. It blends the best of ed­u­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy with mo­ti­va­tion from the “re­ward econ­omy” to re­lease neu­ro­trans­mit­ters es­sen­tial for lock­ing in cog­ni­tive growth.

But its success re­lies on the third es­sen­tial com­po­nent - the com­mit­ment and skills of the teacher sup­port­ing the im­ple­men­ta­tion. As one teacher at the school above said “the re­sults of the stu­dents im­proved when my at­ti­tude changed – they had to en­gage and com­plete be­cause I saw what could be pos­si­ble if they did”.

Ef­fec­tive­ness proven by over 400 school case stud­ies & pub­lished re­search pa­pers Fast For­word123 is one of the most ex­ten­sively re­searched and user val­i­dated ed­u­ca­tional neu­ro­science pro­grams in the world, with more than 400 school case stud­ies and pub­lished re­search pa­pers tes­ti­fy­ing to its ef­fec­tive­ness.
