"With proven results and presence in over 30 countries, Mind Lab is a world leader in the research and development of educational technologies for the development of contemporary skills and competencies."
The Mind Lab Group was founded in 1994. Our activities are all centered on the Mind Lab Method, a unique and innovative approach for the development and training of thinking abilities and life skills through strategy games. Our programs are being integrated into schools’ curricula – from kindergartens to high schools – with lessons delivered once a week throughout the school year. Training seminars, teacher workshops, exciting parent-child events, and various other special activities, complement the Mind Lab project.
Mind Lab’s unique concept is established upon the notion that strategy games serve as a high-powered educational tool. Strategy games contribute to the improvement of cognitive skills and to creating an awareness of thinking processes. They also help the learner to better cope with emotional and social situations. The game-playing experience, which stands at the heart of our program, is at once enjoyable, captivating, and exciting – thus kindling great motivation and enthusiasm among children and serving as the foundation for a deep learning process.
Mind Lab in Australia is fully cognisant of the developments in our educational structure and practice. The methodology links, supports and enhances the General Capabilities of the National Curriculum, the developing overarching structure of Positive Education and Well-being and is a wonderful way to develop teachers through engaging continuing professional development.
