The Neuroscience and Education Lab is proud to showcase the many media outlets that have picked up the Tools of the Mind study (published in PLOS ONE), spawning articles, interviews, and other coverage.

The Tools of the Mind technique trains teachers to promote structured play among kindergarteners, and the results of the study reveal that improvements in children’s skills in reading, vocabulary, and math last beyond kindergarten. The goal of the technique is encouraging children to practice cognitive skills that are essential for learning.
