“The world will always need human brilliance, human ingenuity and human skills.” – Brad Keywell, Co-Founder and CEO, Update Technologies. True! The world’s most priceless commodity is indeed, people. We need to invest in them, inspire them, and empower them to have an ‘I can’ mindset.
Currently, headlines in the media are painting a bleak picture of education globally. According to a recent article by Silvia Montoya, Director of the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), 617 million children and adolescents worldwide – six out of ten – are not reaching the minimum proficiency levels in reading and mathematics. This gives us reason for concern, especially in a time where everything is changing and Industry 4.0 is a reality. However, there is a solution.
We (you and I) are the solution. If we join forces we can combat illiteracy and improve educational outcomes across the globe. It can be done. At Lectorsa we have been doing this. ]With our virtual solution, LAB-on-line, we utilize the vehicle of reading and comprehension development to improve visual processing skills and cognitive abilities. We employ the principles of neuromodulation to help readers ‘build’ a structure for interaction with visual information in order to see faster, think better and remember more. Through an online, automated, real-time, data-driven system we achieve excellent results for the personal development of each of our users. Added to that, of course, an improvement in silent reading, fluency (required for learning), language skills and improved academic outcomes. We have successfully ‘rewired’ more than 85 000 minds to learn, retain and to excel!
Someone once said, ”A child without education is like a bird without wings.” All of us want to see every child soar to great academic heights. We want to make it possible for them to unlock their true potential and to realize their dreams, for they are our future.
At Lectorsa we have seen and experienced the transformation our system brings into the lives of learners across the board. Join us in making the difference the world needs as we improve these crucial skills and results with proven scientific methods. Let’s accelerate and escalate the intellectual capital of our students.
