I have been reading a lot about the Nintendo DS lite and the game Brain Age. The game features activities designed to help stimulate your brain and give it the workout it needs like solving simple math problems, counting people going in and out of a house simultaneously, drawing pictures on the Nintendo DS touch screen, and reading classic literature out loud. At times, the game allows you to compete with 16 other people. Which is close enough to web 2.0 for me.
Since standardized tests are so important in my area, would playing Brain Age help improve scores? Attendance?
How do I convince my wife I need one for research?
