VISION

Since the dawn of civilization, strategy games have played an important role in human culture. Teachers would draw lines in the sand upon which their pupils would place the game pieces, as part of an engrossing, mind-sharpening activity. Family members of all generations would sit together and enjoy the challenges inherent in strategy games.

Much knowledge has since been forgotten and lifestyles have changed. The fast pace of our lives has given rise to other types of games. Violent, action-packed computer games, intense video clips, and a plethora of television programs have replaced the traditional activity of sitting together around the game board, an activity requiring deep thought, patience, perseverance, and social cooperation.

The Mind Lab Group has reinstated the strategy game to its rightful and natural place and has transformed it once again into a powerful educational tool that appeals to children’s hearts and minds alike. Thanks to a tested and proven methodology, the Mind Lab Group is engaged in one of the greatest educational challenges of our day.

MISSION

A1

Our mission is to prepare the next generation to the complex challenges of the 21st century: by strengthening a broad range of cognitive, emotional, and social skills; by teaching children how to think reflectively; and by encouraging students to “learn how to learn.”

Most important, Mind Lab helps our children to become fulfilled, contributing, and happy human beings. In order to accomplish this, we empower teachers and schools with innovative educational tools that work.

PHILOSOPHY

At the heart of the Mind Lab Method is the notion that the most effective way to learn is through an immediate and authentic experience that leaves one wanting more. Game-playing is the perfect example of such an experience – it is entertaining, engaging and exciting; therefore stimulates eager involvement. Game-playing also provides fertile ground for the training and application of thinking abilities and life skills.

The philosopher Plato best articulated this with his says:

“Not by force shall the children learn, but through play.”

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”
