It's time to return to school, but that doesn't mean the fun has come to an end. Children who are actively developing are at a critical period in their development when it comes to building life-long habits. As a result, education is no longer constrained by the confines of the traditional classroom. The majority of children in school have acquired smooth, robust motor abilities. However, their coordination, especially eye-hand coordination, endurance, balance, and athletic abilities differ. These skills may have an impact on a child's ability to write properly, dress appropriately, and do household duties like making beds and cleaning dishes. Children's cognitive capabilities can be aided by using FITLIGHT® for activities other than athletics.
Importance of Cognitive Domains
The cognitive domain seeks to improve an individual's mental abilities and knowledge acquisition. It's also important to make sure that learning is delivered in a way that incorporates the many aspects that have been recognized as learning domains. Keeping these domains healthy and busy is essential for brain health.
Receptive and productive abilities, as well as the capacity to interpret language, access semantic memory, name objects, and respond to verbal commands with behavioral acts, are all examples of language skills. Language development is a crucial aspect of a child's growth. The first stage in literacy is to learn to comprehend, utilize, and enjoy language. This is the foundation for learning to read and write.
Attention is a complex cognitive function in neuropsychology and cognitive psychology. This system is in charge of the "multiple demand system," "fluid intelligence," goal-directed behavior, stimulus-driven reorienting, and cognitive-sensory interaction. The capacity to pick the right stimuli to focus on, the ability to transfer attention from one set of stimuli to another when appropriate, and the ability to sustain attention are all examples of attentional abilities that may be learned for certain sports. In most sports, these abilities are required for success.
The ability to recognize visual and spatial links among things is referred to as visuospatial aptitude. The capacity to visualize objects, to form global shapes by identifying little components, and to grasp the contrasts and similarities between items are all examples of visuospatial ability. Allows us to comprehend things and their spatial connections visually.
The most complicated and multifaceted cognitive domain is memory functioning. There are several subdomains, and formal evaluations for most of them have been created. Think of this as the brain's CEO. Planning, organizing, working memory, time management, paying attention to the job at hand, goal setting, flexible thinking, impulse control, and task initiation are all tasks that need flexible thinking.
FITLIGHT® is pre-loaded with various cognitive games that test the key domains in a fun and engaging way. You may even create your own sequences, which opens up a world of brain-training possibilities!
Check out this cognitive drill "Green Means Go"
The goal of this game is for children to deactivate just the green light while inhibiting their response to the red light. Attention, working memory, and learning and growth are all areas that need to be addressed.
The capacity to critically analyze information must be part of the learning process, in addition to reading and memorizing facts and information. Let's make sure our kids have the tools they need to be active and healthy with FITLIGHT!
