DRUMBEAT Quest is Holyoake's latest innovation born out of the evidence-based DRUMBEAT Program. The rhythmic adventure game is designed to enhance social and emotional learning in school aged children and is aligned with the Australian Curriculum standards.
The game explores many issues that youth face on a daily basis, including identity, values and beliefs, community and diversity, bullying, peer pressure and more.
Incorporating the latest research in neuroscience on rhythm and emotional regulation, DRUMBEAT Quest is fun and engaging. The game is played with an electronic drum to enhance the rhythm-based outcomes including improved motor coordination and emotional regulation.
Quest is designed for educators and counsellors working with young people aged 8 to 17 years in group or individual settings.
Holyoake has established a research partnership with Murdoch University's Project KIDS - a neurodevelopmental research program. After conducting a pilot study on DRUMBEAT Quest in 2015, the Murdoch researchers are currently preparing for a larger study, evaluating the impact of the DRUMBEAT Quest program on well being, self-regulation and emotional and social awareness in primary school-aged children.
Holyoake is looking to partner with schools and organisations working with youth for research opportunities.
