NEWS: ‘Brain Hero’ making global rounds (6/9/2012)

Brain Hero, a 3-minute game-inspired video about how actions taken by parents, teachers, policymakers, and others can affect life outcomes for both the child and the surrounding community, is making global rounds. On its soft-release this week, the video was noticed by UK Labour MP Graham Allen who is leading an early childhood intervention and it was reblogged.

The video is a result of a collaboration with the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University and the Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute at the University of Southern California which is focused on the creation and dissemination of innovative storytelling products designed to inform the public discourse around policies and practices that support healthy brain development during childhood.
