No matter where you start from …

With great excitement, Lectorsa and M3line launched the EyeBrainGym during the past few weeks in Limpopo, Freestate, Western Cape, Eastern Cape and KZN.

Thomas Marshall, director of M3line, shared “Eye-Brain-Gym, our solution is a customised Eye-Brain training course with an individualised specific Game Plan to suit your schedule and or needs. It offers a selection of dynamic games and reading actions culminating in cognitive skills sessions to enhance the executive function in the brain and the interaction in the brain to move information faster to the pre-frontal cortex. Our exercises will improve your comprehension and bring you to a new level of competence when dealing with visual information.”

M3line, in collaboration with Lectorsa, have developed EyeBrainGym based on ten years’ data with more than 100,000 case studies in LAB-on-line. Lectorsa have seen great results in developing visual processing, reading and comprehension for their users. There was great excitement at the launch of EyeBrainGym. The hope is that this product can build on many other significant efforts to MAXimise the #ReadingRevolution South Africa so desperately need.

According to the research, everyone can and should read more, see faster, think clearer and reason better.

“Our focus is to advance visual intelligence while addressing processing, reading and comprehension development from Grade R to Grade 12 learners in schools. We collaborate with universities to develop subject-specific materials for tertiary students and have high expectations a better future for all. We’ve seen an overall improvement of 6 years average for our users”, shared Minda Marshall Director of Lectorsa.

 The vision is to ensure connected students, to transform educational experiences and create engaged citizens. The directors explained that EyeBrainGym was developed in a way that games are used in specific sequence and intervals with researched weights and timeslots to achieve certain outcomes regarding visual processing and cognitive skills development. The aim is to develop a coherent mind, to achieve improved interaction with visual information through improved visual and cognitive skills.

The evening concluded with nominations for a school or organisation to be sponsored by guests to give students access to the new system. Congratulations, to Mbokota High School in Limpopo who won 30 EyeBrainGym subscriptions to the value of R114,000.00. The project will kick off at the rural school in Limpopo after the April holidays.
