For kids from 3 to 17 years old
Pinoki Brain Training Program is a product of collaboration between Master Yuji Kitazawa and Dr. Tan Kok Liang, who both graduated from one of the most famous universities in Japan - Keio University. Owing to Master Yuji Kitazawa's musical eidetic memory, he is able to not only hear but also 'see' a piece of music with his mind's eyes. He can play a piece, sometimes, even a long composition, after hearing if for a brief time. His eidetic memory ability was soon extended to the realm of study when he was a junior high school student. He has published a number of academic papers bearing on Artificial Intelligence. On the other hand, Dr. Tan Kok Liang was a straight-A achiever in all national examinations in his home country and a former Japanese Government Monbukagakusho Scholar, General Electric Scholar, Recipient of Outstanding International Conference Paper Award (2008 & 2009) and Recipient of Jyoseikin (research grants 2008 & 2009) by Keio University. He has published many journals and papers in the field of medical imaging and neural network. He knows better than most people on how to use eidetic memory to score better results in examinations. Pinoki Brain Training Program consists of a variety of flashcards, memory games and critical thinking exercises to nurture eidetic memory for achieving higher goals in life. Supported by Pinoki Research & Development, the program never gets old because new learning materials including Pinoki’s very own interactive iPad technology are reviewed and selectively added into the program regularly.
"We believe every brain is special. There is not a single brain that thinks the same. Helping kids to discover their hidden potential gives us the biggest satisfaction." ~Pinoki R&D ヒノーキ式脳トレーニンクの研究開発
“Before children are put into the same rigid boxes with the labels of ‘school’ and ‘left-brain mode of learning’, we induce whole-brained self-motivated learning abilities in them.” ~Pinoki R&D ヒノーキ式脳トレーニンクの研究開発
Eidetic memory is a powerful mind tool that can be used to score A's in examinations if it is correctly and optimally used with the left-brained abilities. We teach students on how to achieve that through our uniquely absorbent brain training program.
Our principal, Dr. Tan Kok Liang, was a UPSR, PMR, SPM and STPM straight-A student himself. Specializing in brain training (neural network) and pattern recognition, he knows better than most people on how to study using both sides of the brain to score straight A’s in examinations.
The theory of the structure and functions of the mind suggests that the two different sides of the brains control two different “modes” of thinking. It also suggests that each of us prefers one mode over the other. In general, schools tend to favor left-brain modes of thinking, while downplaying the right-brain ones. Left-brained scholastic subjects focus on logical thinking, analysis, and accuracy. Right-brained subjects, on the other hand, focus on mental imagery, intuition, aesthetics, feeling and creativity.
In order to be more “whole-brained” oriented, students need to be given equal weight to the arts, creativity, imagination, synthesis and mental imagery. The optimal potential of the brain can only be induced with the balanced use of both sides of the brain.
To foster a more whole-brained scholastic experience, special instruction techniques that connect with both sides of the brain are matters of the utmost importance. It is also crucial that the classroom’s right-brain learning activities are increased by incorporating more patterning, metaphors, analogies, role playing, visuals, and movement into their reading, calculation, and analytical activities.
On top of all, right-brain exercises should be implemented frequently so that students can slowly adapt to using both sides of the brain. The right-brain exercises should focus on improving the students’ image recognition ability, concentration, intuition ability, eidetic memory ability, creativity and ability to do parallel processing of information.
Assessment - For a more accurate whole-brained evaluation of student’s learning, educators must develop new forms of assessment that honor right-brained talents and skills.
“What is eidetic memory? When is the best brain period for nurturing eidetic memory?”
“Why can’t my kids learn eidetic memory in school?”
“How right-brain vs. left-brain thinking impacts learning?”
“How do I know if my children are practicing the right memory skills for study?”
“How to read using the mind’s eyes so that the memory can last longer?”
“How to study less yet maintain good grades in school?”
“My son's academic results do not improve even when he takes 5 tuitions simultaneously, why?”
“Will my daughter be able to maintain her good grades when she grows up?”
“My daughter scored straight A’s in both UPSR and PMR but she got only 5A’s in SPM, why?”
“My son’s academic performance started deteriorating since Form 1. Maybe he can’t cope with that many subjects ...”
"My son always completes his school homework but does that mean he will be able to score A's in examinations?"
“What is the difference between my son’s brain and his straight-A friend’s brain?”
