Because of the difficulty level of the puzzles, this game may not be developmentally appropriate for students under the age of eight.
Working Memory: Recalling and retaining information in our minds while working.
Peak has games especially designed for strengthening Working Memory Skills. Because there are short goals to reach every day, this gives students an opportunity to strengthen this skill incrementally each day. For example, students can play the game Apprentice Wizard, where they are shown a series of cards and need to remember their locations and place them correctly. If they cannot they need to try again. The game adds additional cards as students win, making them use their Working Memory at increasing levels.
Focus: Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.
While there are games on Peak designed to specifically enhance Focus skills, games in each category will work to strengthen this skill. Because each game is targeted to improving brain function, students have to put all of their attention into the task at hand, leading to heightened focus. For example, students can play the game “Decoder,” where they have a three digit number that they need to look for in a series of constantly scrolling numbers. When they see their three digit combo, they click the screen and are awarded points. Students need to practice their focus skills in order to see their combo as many times as possible in the time they are given.
