Educational Potential
Elevate is a brain training app based on questions for which the player has to quickly provide answers.
This app has elements from a game and also from an educational app, but still can be thought as a leisure app because of the nature of the questions.
The educational potential comes from the goal of this app: to improve several key abilities:
Speed processing
Focus
speaking Skills
Memory
Math skills
And the app aims to keep the player entertained by setting out several different tests, which are easy to play (most of the time you just have to make a choice but no writting is required). Unlike other similar apps, Elevate stresses on comprehension of written texts and speaking. The player is trained to use the best word for the meaning he wants to express.

This can be one of the few apps that tries to improve the linguistic ability of players while keeping the fun of play.
This app is riskless for the player
Learning Object / Suggested activities with students
The main learning object is reading comprehension and expression improvement. Therefore it can be used in many subjects and levels as a quick tool to heat up your mind or check your ability.
