about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Do I have ADHD?
The question above is constantly posed to Silta Education’s Co-Founder, Johanna Vilmi, who works as a psychologist with university students. Whether ADHD or not, our current environment, social media usage, lack of sleep and physical activity, makes our ability to focus increasingly difficult.
Silta Focus is invented for rebuilding concentration to everyone’s benefit.

How does your innovation work in practice?

Silta Focus is one month online training program, and it works in any LMS System. It is based on flipped learning method, and consists of inspirational bite-sized videos and podcasts which students are able to watch or listen anywhere at anytime. The new learnings are rehearsed with quick quizzes. Students also receive every week smart habits -assignments and exercises that will guide them to implement new habits and routines to their everyday life, and to set smart goals for themselves. In addition, students learn to follow and measure their own progress. As an option, we provide weekly live online coaching sessions during Silta Focus training. The coaching is an effective tool for building up accountability, and implementation, deepening motivation and learning.
Weekly themes in Silta Focus are sleep and exercise (the foundation for concentration), optimal learning environment, motivation and self-awareness, and stress management and emotion regulation.

How has it been spreading?

Silta Focus is a new training product that has already gained a lot of attention around the world. No wonder, because the struggle to concentrate is acute globally. In Finland Silta Focus will be piloted with approximately 180 university students during the year 2022. This pilot will be a subject of scientific research as well, under University of Helsinki. International pilots are currently in negotiations.

If I want to try it, what should I do?
