COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., May 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Kim Hanson, CEO of LearningRx Brain Training, wants to ensure that the 'COVID-19 Slide'—the term national educators are giving to students' extended learning loss due to school closures--doesn't deter kids' love for learning (and laughter) this summer.
According to Hanson, "As a former teacher and mother of four, it's critical that kids who are currently distance learning, or winding down their distance learning, continue to stay engaged with academics over the summer. With most of America's students missing as much as five months of classroom learning this school year, it's no longer a question of 'if' kids will lose academic skills in reading and math; it's a question of 'how much' they'll lose."
To help keep kids productive, motivated, and cognitively challenged, Hanson decided to produce and host a series of virtual brain training videos that she calls, "Train Your Brain Tuesday." She adds, "The videos give kids the chance to try brain training exercises from home and gives parents a much-deserved break from the dueling demands of work, homeschooling kids, and the weight of the pandemic. Turns out, parents are having as much fun doing these activities as their kids!"
In the most recent episode, Kim takes over her sister's virtual classroom of 5th and 6th graders to teach them activities that build short- and long-term memory, attention skills, and processing speed—all vital to learning and academic success. "The kids get to learn and have fun at the same time," according to Hanson. "Continuing our children's education, even when it's delivered in a unique way, will go a long way in keeping kids on track and getting them through the COVID-10 Slide."
