    Today's "App in Focus' is Gopher Glee!

    We react to negative cues more than positive cues since negative cues are important to keeping us safe and out of danger. It is difficult to focus on positive emotion and reward cues when your safety is not assured.

    However, too much of a negative bias can produce negative feelings, such as stress, worry, and even depression. Alternatively, the capacity to focus on positive emotions is associated with a more positive outlook.

    With practice, you can shift your natural bias from negative to positive – becoming more self-aware, optimistic and increasing your wellbeing.

    In Gopher Glee, the child can develop an automatic positive bias by training his or her awareness of positive emotions.

    Today's 'App in Focus' is Feeling Bubbly!

    Feeling Bubbly trains core ‘thinking skills’ including, positivity focus and stress management.

    The aim of Feeling Bubbly is to create an automatic spiral of positive feelings so that it becomes instinctive.

    By training to pop only the happy word bubble and avoid the sad word bubbles, a child learns to focus on their positivity.

    Positive feelings have a contagious effect that makes a child feel better and notice positive things around them.

    Negative feelings have a similar effect, making a child and others around them feel more stressed.

    Tuning into positive feelings can enhance one’s overall wellbeing and happiness.

    Today's 'App in Focus' is Joyride!

    Focusing on positive emotions creates an upward spiral that enhances our overall well-being.

    The more a child trains with emotion exercises like Joyride, the more they will be able to automatically tune in to positive emotion cues, forming a ‘habit’ that optimizes their emotional wellbeing. Evidence for this effect has been the basis of the growth in ‘positive psychology’.

    In Joyride the child is rewarded when they focus on positive emotion cues and avoiding the negative ones as indicated by the facial expressions of the passengers as they pass by.

    To keep things interesting, each level gets faster and more challenging.

    Today's 'App in Focus' is Memory Frog!

    Working Memory is the part of memory that requires you to hold information 'online' for seconds to minutes so that you can use it to achieve things in real time.

    For example, we use working memory to remember and then dial a phone number that someone just told us. Typically we can hold 5 to 9 pieces of information online at a time.

    In Memory Frog, the child must follow a visual sequence of illuminated frogs and repeat it back by clicking on the frogs in the same order. As the sequences get longer, your child may develop strategies for holding this information 'online'. Improvements from brain training are able to translate into the many everyday tasks that working memory is used for.

    Today's 'App in Focus' is Bullseye. Designed for school children, Bullseye trains core ‘thinking skills’ including:

    -Decision speed

    -Executive function

    -Information processing speed

    -Attention

    -Response inhibition

    -Working Memory

    In Bullseye a child must aim the bow and arrow at the target while simultaneaoulsy taking into consideration the wind direction and strength. Taking multiple factors into consideration to achieve the perfect ‘Bullseye’ is the same principal that underpins ‘executive function’.

    Executive function relies on flexibility, acquiring rules, estimating time and choosing the right action whilst suppressing others. Brain training exercises such as ‘Bullseye’ have been found to benefit executive function and these benefits translate into real life.
