All children can learn
Cognition Matters integrates research and game development into effective and fun digital training tools for children. While traditional education teaches facts, we give children tools that improve their understanding of numbers and their problem solving capacity.

VEKTOR - THE TRAINING PROGRAM
Vektor is a training tool for early math learning in children. It also includes training on cognitive tasks important for mathematics. Vektor is designed based on research about effective early learning of mathematics and developed by leading researchers in collaboration with experienced game developers. Vektor is a playful and engaging tablet app designed for children 6-8 years old.
Humans have a tendency to associate numbers and space. Learning about numbers and arithmetics using the numberline is therefore a natural and efficient way to learn. Using the numberline gives children a good start on which to build future mathematical learning. More general cognitive skills are also important for mathematics, including reasoning, spatial abilities and working memory. Vektor therefore includes these elements in a combined mathematical-cognitive training.
While traditional education teaches facts, Vektor provides the individual with the cognitive ability necessary for learning and problem solving.
Vektor is available to anyone, anywhere - free of charge.
Projects with schools and organizations using Vektor are currently ongoing in a number of places, such as in Sweden, Mexico, Uruguay and Finland.
We believe that our training programs could unlock the learning potential in all children, and hope that they will come to use to as many children as possible.
