Cogni’Junior

Betrokken bij dit project zijn de organisatie Cogni’Junior en de testers en gebruikers van de kit.

Cogni’Junior is een organisatie die in eerste instantie is opgericht door promovendi in de cognitieve wetenschappen en neurowetenschappen. De organistaie heeft als doel om speelse hulpmiddelen te creëren die wetenschap dichter bij een algemeen publiek brengen.

De mensen die de kit testen en gebruiken zijn leerkrachten die zelf meestal geen neurowetenschappelijke achtergrond hebben. Veel van deze leerkrachten helpen mee de kit te verbeteren door hun feedback te geven op de materialen.

Donders Institute

Donders studeert schoolstudenten en alumni af: een team van 8 doctoraatsstudenten en oud-studenten leidt de ontwikkeling van nieuwe hulpmiddelen voor het programma en beheert de gemeenschap van gebruikers

Teachers testing the kit:

If Cogni’Junior is leading this adventure, it’s because we hope to provide tools that can be used by all, so the use of the kit should not require initial knowledge of neuroscience. It’s with this aim that the team wish to take one year to improve the kit with all feedback that we can get from users. It will get out a unique program, made with and for teachers. After this validation on the pedagogic level, we will lead a scientific validation of the effect of the kit on academic improvement (year 3).
