Tactile Learning

A hands-on, interactive, and engaging learning solution.

Conceived by Professor Reuven Feuerstein and developed by Professor Roman Gouzman, Tactile IE is a learning intervention that uses touch and movement in order to enable kinesthetic and visually impaired learners to explore the world around them in an orderly and clear manner to develop their critical thinking skills.

Tactile IE for Learners with

Learners with ADHD suffer from an overload of information, which affects their ability to properly Input and Elaborate information. By forcing learners to rely only on touch and movement, Tactile IE helps train their brain to explore, structure and process information in a sequential and organized manner. By forming mental tactile images and comparing them to their existing image library, learners develop and use complex cognitive processes such as exploration, comparison, hypothetical thinking, and logical reasoning – the basis for structured and efficient learning processes.

Tactile IE for Visually
Impaired Learners

Visually-impaired learners often lack the knowledge of the world as it is experienced by seeing people. When visually impaired from birth, their ability to perceptually integrate objects and concepts is impaired too. 

There are very few learning tools to teach thinking and learning skills that are geared toward the visually impaired learner. By using raised images and shapes, combined with Feuerstein MLE (Mediated Learning Experience), students are given powerful tools to develop their learning skills, even when lacking vision.
