About Mediated Learning Lab:
The Mediated Learning Laboratory (MLL) in NIE is set up to propel the use of Reuven Feuerstein’s body of theoretical work for research in educational settings and translate research findings into practical guides for teachers and practitioners both locally and globally.  In addition, it aims to connect with researchers to lead research and push knowledge frontier for Feuerstein’s theories of Structural Cognitive Modifiability, Mediated Learning Experience and Dynamics Assessment.

Synopsis of Talk:
In this talk, Prof David Tzuriel will focus on mediated learning processes (MLE) that affect cognitive modifiability. MLE describes a special quality of interaction between a mediator and a learner.  In this interactional process, parents, teachers, or peers interpose themselves between a set of stimuli and the learner, and modify the stimuli for the child. In this presentation he will demonstrate the relation between the quality of parent-child MLE interactions and cognitive modifiability, as well as the effects of intervention targeting peer-mediation on cognitive modifiability.
