Great news! A research report has just been accepted for publication, reporting on the first 3 studies on the effectiveness of Quincey Quokka’s Quest for improving children’s working memory and attention. The studies, published online now in Educational Psychology Review and soon to follow in print, showed benefits in as little as 3 weeks, which were maintained two months after having stopped reading the book with children. These benefits were over and above the benefits seen just by reading the book, suggesting that cognitive ‘brain training’ does not require expensive and time-consuming computerised programs, but instead can be done in everyday and low-cost contexts.
