Arrowsmith ProgramThe Arrow­smith Pro­gram,  avail­able in pub­lic and pri­vate schools in  the U.S. and Cana­da, is a com­pre­hen­sive suite of cog­ni­tive pro­grams for stu­dents with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties that tar­gets 19 areas of the brain that are most com­monly involved in learn­ing. The Arrow­smith Pro­gram iden­ti­fies and strength­ens the weak cog­ni­tive areas that affect learn­ing and each stu­dent works on cog­ni­tive pro­grams that are indi­vid­u­ally designed for his or her areas of learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ty.
brainbaselineDig­i­tal Arte­facts is a team of high­ly skilled com­put­er sci­en­tists, artists, and engi­neers who are pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing state of the art visu­al­iza­tion and inter­ac­tive expe­ri­ences for edu­ca­tion and research com­mu­ni­ties. Their design approach, as exem­pli­fied by Brain­Base­line –the first iPad appli­ca­tion that enables cog­ni­tive self-mon­i­tor­ing– is guid­ed by a com­mit­ment to user-cen­tered design and to a deep under­stand­ing of human fac­tors in key sub­ject domains.
