At the start, BrainWare was a single program BrainWare SAFARI. Today it is a full-blown concept and platform for improving learning and teaching based on a deep (and continually deepening) understanding of how the brain works and learns. There was no school for educators who wanted to understand neuroscience when we started, but we have learned from and collaborated with other pioneers. It has been gratifying to see much of what we originally believed be supported by a mounting body of evidence. We have tested our programs and ideas in authentic clinical, educational and workplace settings. We listen and learn from our clients, including parents, clinicians, educators and workplace organizations.
Everything we develop or partner to bring to our customers must meet these criteria:
- The product or service relates to development of better learning and teaching, focused primarily on building cognitive capacity.
- It is evidence-based, which means that it is supported by sound research. But for us it means more. It means that we insist on evaluating our programs and products with a variety of research methodologies. We believe that peer-reviewed, published research is essential, but we also emphasize helping our clients demonstrate the value of our programs in ways that are meaningful to them.
- It embodies the best practices of technology, particularly video-game technology, to deliver an engaging, motivating and impactful experience. We seek to extend the value of our programs to a broad population
everyone has a brain.
Today, BrainWare SAFARI is one of our Cognitive Literacy Solutions, solutions that build the foundational cognitive infrastructure for learning that transfers to greater success in school, work and life, and to support the more rapid and effective acquisition of literacy skills.
