Evidenced-Based instruction for high academic achievement
Now in Beta: Mem-ExSpan, memspan is an interactive supplementary blended e-learning system that rapidly improves cognitive skills/working memory through sequencing, coding, and procedural practice.
The Bridge to Achievement® (The BTA) offers unique encoding-decoding skill action training. The "Patterns and Systems" artistic methodology creates "span-expansion" or Deep Learning prowess.
Both intensive individual and group standandardized tests were conducted at 13 national test sites and cross-correlated. Juried publications featured this pioneering research work that also appears on "Google's Best Educational Books/Resources" listing. The instructional "How to Follow Directions" lessons build stronger focus, self-awareness, and memory spans for improved listening and visual memory processing up-take and out-put. This results in higher student academic achievement for college and career readiness. Adults also benefit by increasing their coding and procedural-flexibility-management capabilities for learning new skills needed in this challenging environment.
Mem-ExSpan, memspan, researched/created/developed by Jan Kuyper Erland, offers students, grades 3 - 12, and adult learners, a way to accelerate and jump-start their learning with other skill programs, and catch up with peers. This is through engaging, interactive sensory integration that includes strong visual and auditory (listening) sequence training. Music, art, drama, and scientific concepts are applied through a unique, intense rehearsal regimen to understand math and reading procedures quickly.
Juried, published reports verified that robust academic growth gains maintained over time. These five 1-3 year longitudinal data reports by J. K. Erland won an educational research award by the International Alliance for Learning (2001).
Discover a way to learn easily with retro puppet actors as task masters, and the ability to see connections where few were considered before.
Learn fast while pretending through "Make Believe" - adults, teens, and pre-teens can now enjoy historical comic toys of yesteryear, made directly from within "Hollywood's Golden Age". Meet the cubistic characters as they apply J. K. Erland's representation of her "contrapuntal-parallel speed thinking" musical phrasing-5 dimensional rehearsal method driving the results. (copyrighted 1981, 1986, 1988, 1989, 2017, & 2019). In this initial lesson, learners scan and say the numbers forward and in reverse to position them mentally. Unusual number span rehearsal lesson-items go at different speeds/paces to match the learner's ability rates - this is a static, simple, demo sample.
