Membean helps teachers with innovative tools help their students build their vocabulary.

Description

Update

Membean builds learning products for schools and life learners that arrest forgetting of learned material. Using techniques from memory research, Membean's material encourages building knowledge networks in the brain and allowing for multiple recall pathways. The Adaptive Reinforcement Engine refreshes learned material as it's about to be forgotten.

Membean's first product is a web-based vocabulary learning tool for schools that teaches thousands of words in a multimodal environment. An example word page: http://membean.com/exemplars/plethora

Traditional instruction focuses exclusively on "learning" with little regard for keeping knowledge in memory. Membean turns the paradigm around by focusing on retention. The result is a uniquely engaging and rich learning environment.
