7 - METHODOLOGY USED (presentations, pair work, group work, peers, mentors, blended
learning, e-learning, etc.)
ActivaLaMente is an online platform for cognitive stimulation designed by neuropsychology professionals and intended for older people to get their mind fit in a simple and entertaining way. The program offers over 1,200 exercises focused on working on six major cognitive areas:
1. Language
2. Memory
3. Executive functions
4. Visual processing
5. Attention and concentration
6. Auditory processing
Specific activities have been designed for every area, although none of them stimulate only one ability: to work mentally implies to network, to bring several abilities into play simultaneously. Exercises from ActivaLaMente, prepared rigorously by professionals, are easy to do and entertaining. It is advisable to do them in a mixed manner to be more effective, so an itinerary has been designed. This itinerary is linked to each user; the beginning and the end are adapted to each person’s performance. To be registered as user means you do not have to start again each time: the program will recognize you and will offer the option of resume exercises where you left at the previous session. Before starting it is important to read instructions and advice.

8 - PROGRAM / SERVICE / ACTIVITY SUMMARY DESCRIPTION
This platform, designed by professionals and experts in neuropsychology, has been created for two specific goals: First, it intends to bring knowledge on ageing process and its consequences for the brain to general public and older people. Second, it is aimed at facilitating a tool for keeping their mind active. So that, ActivaLaMente consist of a total of 1200 exercises arranged on six different areas: language, memory, attention and concentration, visual processing, auditory processing and executive functions. This is a hugely valuable material that can be used not only by professionals, but individually by people wishing to exercise their mind to prevent cognitive deterioration.
