Instrumental Enrichment Basic (FIE Basic)
Training in Thinking Skills - Learning How To Learn.
Certificate course for teachers, psychologists, support staff and parents working with children and students in Nursery, Primary, Special and Further Education. Some of the instruments are suitable for students in Secondary Schools.
The Basic course is designed to accelerate cognitive development and develop social competence. The course is appropriate for children 3 to 8 years of age, and for the older student who has a low performance level and needs a more systematic and developmentally based approach.
It is designed to be used with whole class groups, small groups, and as a one-to-one therapeutic intervention. Pupils learn to “think about their thinking,” metacognition, by reflecting on the strategies learned and applying them to curriculum content and problem solving tasks.
The course consists of 7 Instruments or units of work:
From Unit to Group: learning to understand the concept of number and the cardinality of number.
Organisation of Dots: learning how to inhibit impulsiveness, search systematically, transport visual images, develop strategies and develop precision and accuracy.
Tri-Channel Attentional Learning: learning to overcome attention disorders and developing representational thinking.
Orientation in Space: learning how to identify positions in space, using precise vocabulary: up/down, right/left, inside/outside, above/below, etc. Using more than 2 sources of information simultaneously.
Identifying Emotions: learning the language of emotions, understanding emotions in self and others and understanding emotions generated in social situations.
From Empathy to Action: learning to reflect upon emotions and reactions to given situations and developing empathic understanding - the mechanism of empathy.
