What is Mediated Learning?

One of the goals of this journal/blog is to talk about our journey of using the methods and techniques of Mediated Learning created by Reuven Feuerstein.

Over the next few weeks I will be describing what Mediated Learning is and how we incorporate it into our homeschool. I hope you are encouraged and that we can laugh at my mistakes (rather than cry over them). I am just learning. I am no expert.
Just a devoted Mom who wants to make the most of our family's learning journey. I pray that all of it brings glory and honour to Jesus Christ.

What is Mediated Learning?

Mediated Learning is a special interaction that takes place between parent/child causing a change in the ability to learn and effective thinking skills are developed in the child.
The focus is on addressing a child's weaknesses and strength, working especially to mediate through weaknesses to a place of success.

Mediational can be used by anyone but are most effective when a parent is the prime mediator.

Simply put, Mediated Learning is teaching your child to think . To think and to examine their thinking skills so that they can change, adapt and learn in any situation.
