STEM Education (FIE STEM)
Feuerstein’s classic cognitive enrichment tools, adapted for STEM education.
In an ever-changing and complex world, STEM education provides students with the necessary skills to meet technological challenges and inspire innovation. Yet the important, foundational brain-based skills needed for success are not packaged in the detailed STEM lesson plans.
FIE STEM fills in these gaps. The program prepares teachers to intentionally and explicitly mediate these critical learning skills in a systematic way. Organized into four modules, each focusing on a particular learning disposition, the program consists of progressively challenging tasks designed to help students improve their mental flexibility and critical thinking. The four modules are Spatial-Visual Thinking, Relational Reasoning, Categorical Thinking, and Effective Communication.
