Greetings Cellphone Scholars! Welcome back to another episode of Mr. Markley’s gradebook, where I review apps that promise to make you smarter. Today we’re going to look at the “Brain Training” app Lumosity, a puzzle/memory game app whose TV ads claim it can do things from making your brain “feel” better, to helping out your interpersonal relationships because of your memory. It uses the words “the science of neuroplasticity” in the ads to explain how it works, but, according to their own scientific study, all this means is “...the brain’s ability to fundamentally reorganize itself when confronted with new challenges... “ The more you use your brain, the stronger it gets.
Greetings Mobile Device Academics! Welcome back to Mr. Markley’s Gradebook, where I review apps that promise to make you smarter. Today we’re going to take a look at Vocabulary Builder by Magoosh.

“Play this free game to build your vocabulary with 1200 words from Magoosh :) “ (Yes, the smiley face emojii is part of the description on the Play Store.)
Gearboxers, Cellphone Scholars, Cats, and others, welcome to Mr. Markley’s Gradebook, where I review apps that promise to make you smarter.

I can confirm that it did not, at any point, kill my cat.
Marhabban my friends and Cellphone scholars! You’re tuning in to Mr. Markley’s gradebook, where I review educational apps that promise to train your brain with daily participation.
