Abstract


Cognitive training and assessment refers to ICTs and their relation with students, students with learning disabilities and adults with dementia. This article revises on contemporary research concerning ICTs effectiveness on the training and assessment of attention, memory and executive control functions. Artificial intelligence seems to hold a significant role in the field of cognitive training and rehabilitation as its adaptability and interactivity, enhance users’ motivation and involvement. Moreover, artificial intelligence in combination with other applications provides the means for holistic and cost-effective cognitive interventions through its integrative information processes. Evidently, educators and therapists should advocate of improvements in the engineering features of the applications as well as they should, themselves, expand the implementation of the aforementioned technological innovations in favour of the users’ cognition.
