Synapse aims to improve the quality of literacy in Brazilian public schools. It is based on the association of neuroscience knowledge about children's cognitive brain processes, with a focus on Portuguese and mathematics, and the teachers' knowledge in the classroom, so that we could generate a technology appropriate to the context (skills and difficulties) of public schools in our real Brazil, and with potential to scale. The essence of Synapse is the contextualization and planning by pedagogical objective. It is composed of a pedagogical book and a class planning booklet and digital content for students (tablets).
