Playing Nintendos Brain Trainer can improve childrens maths skills – Telegraph

Children playing Nintendo can significantly improve their maths skills and extend their attention spans, according to research.

Learning and Teaching Scotland tested 600 primary school pupils in 32 schools across the country.

Children aged nine and 10 completed a maths test before the nine-week project, and then again afterwards.

All the pupils’ scores went up, but those using the trainer improved by 50 per cent more than those who did not.
