Cognitive: attention, creative problem solving skills, executive functioning, visual and spatial skills
, literacy, critical thinking, and other learning abilities; and the impact of early technology use on developmental trajectories.
The importance of spatial skills
, such as disembedding, in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) domains is well established (Uttal and Cohen 2012).
Course Objective: The Advanced Technological Applications high school course has students learn about the five components of the Designed World: Engineering Design Graphics and Spatial Skills

Mansoor showcased the app he created to enhance students' visual and spatial skills
in his materials science class.
Intelligence is not limited to certain skills such as mathematics or verbal, and spatial skills
that are tested through tests and examinations, but much more.
Besides the STEM fields, spatial skills
may also play a particularly important role in vocational and other middle-skill jobs.
As the annual whale migration continues, Geoff Woolcott presents some rich classroom activities to develop students' spatial skills
exploring whale migration.
Children will learning how to fold two-dimensional paper squares into three-dimensional objects that are not only fun, but help to develop hand-eye coordination and spatial skills
by engaging the child's whole brain.
Interestingly, prenatal gonadal hormones have also been implicated as important factors in the development of different cognitive abilities such as memory, spatial skills
, numerical, and verbal intelligence.
Cornell researchers are leveraging critical new connections with Head Start centers and day schools in New York City to promote the development of spatial skills
and language acquisition in preschool children--both at school and in the home.
That particular technology has proven successful enough that Ubisoft even got into the mix, partnering with company Amblyotech to help offer treatment via a game called 'Dig Rush.' Video games can also help individuals develop fine motor skills or spatial skills
, among other things, though research in this area is still relatively new.
