Individualized Cognitive Enhancement

COGx Individualized Learning Enhancement Programs

Learning is a cognitive process. Cognition is malleable. Every learner has a unique cognitive profile.  Our individualized programs allow partner organizations to receive training in our proprietary methodology, which targets cognition, develops metacognitive awareness and teaches students to learn effectively.

Academic Research on Student Learning

We believe that an education succeeds when every student is adequately supported to become an independent lifelong learner.

Sophisticated Learners

Our individualized programs target cognition, develop metacognition and teach students to learn effectively. Each program is unique but all programs aim to develop sophisticated learners. We develop learners who understand the architecture of how they learn, possesses a “tool-box” of strategies and techniques to reliably store and retrieve information and knows how to supervise and monitor their own learning.

Our Results: How We Enhance Learning

We measure the impact of our programs through independent clinical pre and post evaluations which we publish

COGx Programs Target:

The COGx Approach: Developing Successful Learners

Teach: the science of learning

COGx programs include a curriculum that teaches students the scientific principles that underpin learning success. This allows students to master evidence-based techniques and strategies specific to learning and memory, in addition to raising their metacognition to become more sophisticated and independent learners.

Train: develop skill and ability

Training involves drill and practice of cognitive exercises that adapt and evolve as skills improve, which is essential to improving one’s underlying skills. Improved ability is a prerequisite to better learning but insufficient in isolation.

Transfer: generalization to real-life

The transfer component of the programs ensures the generalization of cognitive gains to real-life in a way that is individualized and meaningful to the trainee. It is important that coaching only occurs after underlying cognitive skills have been improved

Learning is a Cognitive Processs

While learning is a science that must be taught, learning also depends on the strength of our cognitive skills. Fortunately, these skills are malleable, which means they can be improved. COGx distills the foundational skills required for learning into a framework (depicted in the pyramid). PROCESSING refers to the ability to receive, hold, and make sense of information. This includes Attention, Working Memory, and Processing Speed. These skills work interdependently to integrate information. When one or more of these skills are weak, inefficiency can occur that often undermines a learner’s managing skills. MANAGING refers to the ability to supervise learning & monitor goal-directed behaviors. This includes Executive Functions like cognitive flexibility, impulse control, organization, planning, initiation, time management, and goal setting. It also includes Metacognitive Skills, including a learner’s knowledge of learning principles, their self-awareness, and ability to monitor, control, and assess their own learning. ACQUIRING & APPLYING refers to the ability to store and retrieve information (Long-Term Memory). It is through Long-Term Memory that we accumulate knowledge and apply what we know to learn efficiently, think critically and creatively.
