The purpose of the present study is developing “Working Memory Training Software”, and investigating the efficacy of this computerized cognitive training on students working memory. This study is in R&D research category, and It is performed in a semi-experimental design. Its data were collected from students of the third grade (30), fourth grade (30), and fifth grade (12) of primary school. The children attended in intervention program for 10 sessions. The subtests of working memory in “Tehran- Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale” and “Wechsler intelligence scale for children” were conducted in all three groups on the pre-test and post-test. After eliminating the pre-test effect, Paired-Samples T-Test on total scores of subtests of working memory in “Tehran-Stanford Binet Intelligence Scale” (t=10.869, df=71, r=0.967& P<0.05) and in “Wechsler intelligence scale for children” (t=16.809, df=71, r=0.983& P<0.05) revealed a significant difference in post-test scores. Based on this study The “Working Memory Training Software” causes significant improvement in students working memory performance.
