Let's look at two or three learning strategies to consider and the impact on using these strategies. I also attached three extra resources, some of which this response is drawn.


1. Describe the impact of two different learning strategies for me please.

(1) Cognitive Modifiability and Mediated Learning Strategies

As a broad learning strategy, the FIE (Feuerstein's Instrumental Enrichment) BASIC consists of a set of playful learning activities that that help Pre-K-3 teachers "mediate" the development of children's basic concepts and thinking skills according to the theories of Cognitive Modifiability and Mediated Learning that have made long existing (FIE) program so successful. It includes10 instruments taught over 2-4 years. Short descriptions of these learning strategies and activities include:

1. Tri-Channel Attentional Learning involves children in exploring the characteristics of geometric shapes (squares, circles, triangles, various polygons, segmented irregular forms with elements to be counted, sequenced, etc.) first through the tactile modality, then through drawing, and ultimately visually. The tasks are presented in sequential order from simple to complex. This task is conceived as a way to prevent and remediate a variety of difficulties underlying learning disabilities and attention deficits.

2. Orientation in Space (two levels) helps children develop an operational vocabulary that is related to orientation in space. Tasks present familiar but increasingly complex scenes, and the learner is asked to identify positions in the space and talk about them using specific vocabulary, including: up/down, above/below, inside/outside, in front of/behind, above/below, and ultimately right/left.

3. Organization of Dots engages children in projecting virtual relationships in an amorphous cloud of dots to form specific geometrical forms. The resulting products must conform to given forms and sizes in changing spatial orientation. The exercises become progressively complex as the child gradually overcomes the challenges of conservation, representation, and precision.

4. From Unit to Group facilitates the development of the cardinal concept of numbers. In this set of activities ...
