All About the
Learn to think. Learn for life.
The Feuerstein Method is a unique educational technique developed by world-renowned psychologist Reuven Feuerstein. It is a process-based approach, focusing on developing the skill of learning and expanding one’s intellectual capabilities.
The Feuerstein Method is based on Feuerstein’s theory of Structural Cognitive Modifiability (SCM). The theory suggests that to create a systemic change, the individual requires intervention via human mediation. This process is called the Mediated Learning Experience (MLE). Mediated Learning Experience is implemented through Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment (FIE). This system seeks to intervene and develop the learner’s skills.
Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment (FIE)
FIE is an enrichment program, and it is a series of pencil-and-paper tasks that may be mediated in a classroom, group, or individual setting. Each series focuses on a designated cognitive skill, creating systematic, persistent, and structured conditions to engage learners in problem-solving by developing their ability to understand and elaborate information.
Who is the Feuerstein Method For?
The Feuerstein Method can benefit anyone interested in attaining new thinking and learning skills. Due to its adaptability and ease of use, the Feuerstein Method is employed in over 40 countries around the world, and in a wide variety of settings. His theory has led to more than 2,000 scientific research studies and countless case studies with various populations. It has not only withstood the test of time, but has proven to be as useful in the classroom as it is in a clinical setting, and as part of workplace training.
