Feuerstein@Seven Oaks

The Feuerstein Method is equipping Seven Oaks students with the cognitive skills to enrich each as an efficient, effective, independent and life-long learner.

All of our primary school pupils are benefiting from regular class-based instructional sessions in the well-respected and soundly researched Feuerstein Method. Watch the video you will find there ... The Feuerstein Institute - Step Forward ... for an overview of this programme, and how it has unlocked the potential of the widest range of learners across the world.

 

How can we enable children to unlock their cognitive potential, and meet the unprecedented challenges of the 21st Century that lie ahead for them?

Following attendance at the intensive training courses, our educators are using Professor Feuerstein's Mediated Learning Experience tools and techniques to assist all our students become more aware of their thinking processes. In this way, we are purposefully enhancing learner skills in a systematic, on-going way.

Traditionally, students have been overloaded with information, with sometimes outdated and irrelevant curriculum content decided by someone else, rather than students being supported in learning how to learn, how to learn effectively and think critically.

Many years ago, Einstein said, "I believe in standardising automobiles, not human beings". One size does not fit all! Each of us learns in different ways, and at different speeds. We all have our own unique learning strengths, and our own pattern of cognitive weaknesses.

The Feuerstein Method is another important tool by which Seven Oaks school is steadily building life-long cognitive change for our students.
