You might be wondering, what makes our games so effective? It’s simple, each one has a practical application to daily life. In fact, that’s the core of Elevate—to improve a real-life skill, you need to practice a real-life skill.
Scientific evidence shows when you practice a task that’s highly similar to a real-life task, it generally pays off. This is called near-transfer learning. On the other hand, when you practice an abstract task that doesn’t directly translate to everyday life, it’s not as effective. This is known as far-transfer learning.
At Elevate, we’ve honed in on near transfer. That’s why we focus on skills such as vocabulary, grammar, language clarity and mental math. Those are the exact skills you need to write emails or work reports, calculate tips, budget your expenses and so much more.
So yes, there will be fun and games. But in the end, you’ll see that Elevate actually helps you live a better life. And that’s our number one goal.
Additionally, we’ve conducted studies that have shown a measurable improvement in skills after playing the app. To read more about that study go here.
