FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS BRAINOBRAIN?
Program for the development of skills and abilities in children at the ages 4-14 with two main objectives:
– Full development of the brain (using abacus)
– Personality development (using NLP techniques)
WHAT DOES FULL DEVELOPMENT OF THE BRAIN MEAN?
Our brain is divided into two hemispheres, left and right. Each hemisphere of the brain is responsible for a specific function:
Left hemisphere is responsible for: rationality, analytical skills, logic, research skills, counting, communication skills, etc.
The right hemisphere is responsible for: visualization, creativity, art, intuition (“sixth sense”), emotions, memory etc.
For most people, there is a predominance of left cerebral hemisphere, which is mainly due to the traditional methods of learning, and which leads to incomplete development of the right hemisphere. In addition, numerous studies for the development of both sides of the brain in children have shown that there is less use of connections (synapses of the brain) between the left and the right hemisphere
The Brainobrain program is designed to activate both sides of the brain at the same time, because that is when the activity and the productivity are increased and that leads to successful results.
WHICH METHODOLOGY IS USED TO ACHIEVE FULL DEVELOPMENT OF THE BRAIN?
The methodology is called VAK
– Visualization (seeing)
– Auditory (hearing)
– Kinesthetic (touch, feeling)
This methodology has been proven to be the fastest and most effective form of doctrine and memorization when the information is received at the same time through two or more senses (sight, hearing, touch). By using the abacus method a connection is created between the left and right side of the brain and its full activity is achieved.
WHAT IS THE ABACUS?
The abacus is an ancient Asian calculating tool which has been used for many centuries before the invention of modern numerical system.
Today it is used for mental gymnastics. The abacus as a tool in the processes within the VAK methods and mathematics contributes to the full development of the brain in children.
During classes, children learn to visualize the abacus balls (visual sense), synchronized with magical words (auditory sense) and continue with specific exercises or movements of the balls of the abacus (kinesthetic sense) to get an answer to the problem.
Through this process an intense brain training is achieved and that leads to genious abilities in children.
WHAT IS NLP AND HOW DOES IT HELP CHILDREN?
Neuro-linguistic programming is the study of the process of thinking, communication and behavior. It is a study of information coding and excellent reproduction of behavior, which allows us to achieve the goals and desired outcomes. NLP is the process of modeling the conscious and unconscious patterns or patterns of behavior, and the way in which high potential is generated, is unique and individual to each person.
Using NLP techniques brings positive thinking, bigger self-esteem, motivation and focus in the achievement of the children’s goals. With the increasing sense of self and the environment, children become decision-makers and they develop leadership skills.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF CREATIVE VISUALIZATION?
When children visualize, they actually understand things much better and more efficient.
Visualization not only improves the general understanding of things, but also children begin to enjoy all activities, regardless if it is about reading, math or writing.
WHO ARE WE?
Trained coaches that provide education in an interactive and fun way that is based on:
– Acceptance of information coming through visual, auditory and kinesthetic senses
– Physical exercises for the brain
– Conceptual learning
– Awareness in the monitoring of capabilities regarding the improvement of reading, listening and mathematics
WHAT RESULTS ARE EXPECTED FROM THE PROGRAM?
– Concentration and focus
– Improved memory
– Imagination and creativity
– Conscious monitoring, speed and precision
– Superior numerical skills
– Leadership, determination, confidence …
WHAT IS THE DYNAMICS OF THE PROGRAM?
– 10-12 degrees – each level duration is from 3 to 4 months
– Duration of one Brainobrain class is 120 minutes once per week
– After every level children pass test and acquire international certification
– Each group consists of 10 to 15 students with an individual approach to each child
– Children from the ages of 4-14 who can answer simple questions, who can move the balls on the abacus, who can count to 10 and copy simple, written symbols
CAN ANY CHILD DO THIS PROGRAM?
The program is meant for children with normal, physical, emotional and mental development. It is meant for children that have a high IQ and that are excellent in math. The program is focused toward a complete training of the brain and the personal development, toward acquiring life skills and abilities that the child will use in any academic area or activity.
HOW OFTEN DO CHILDREN NEED TO PRACTICE WITH THE ABACUS?
A 15-minute practice with the abacus and regular course attendance is recommended.
WHAT IS THE ROLE OF PARENTS IN THE PROGRAM?
The most important thing for parents is to understand the importance of the program, and then to provide support for the children to achieve the result that this program offers. Help is needed most at the first level when children should be encouraged to practice at home regularly with proper movements on the abacus, movements that are synchronized with the pronunciation of some magical words.
