A growing need has emerged in the past two decades for applying dynamic assessment (DA) of learning potential for children, especially since early educational decision may affect them in future.
The focus is on DA of learning potential and on cognitive intervention processess following the assessment.
This 4-days workshop will be experientially oriented with emphasis on demonstrations with children, simulation with participants, and supervised assessment experiences with test materials.
1. Present the theoretical foundations of the DA approach especially the theory of Structural Cognitive Modifiability (SCM) and Mediated Learning Experience (MLE).
2. Describe the main goals of DA for young children.
3. Describe the shifts from standardized testing to DA.
4. Portray the major characteristics of DA with young children.
5. Present specific mediation strategies in DA and in intervention.
6. Present deficient cognitive functions that act as barriers to thinking and learning.
7. Bridge the DA findings to educational interventions.
8. Learn to administer seven measures developed by Tzuriel for young children and children in school.
Prof. David Tzuriel, Ph.D., School of Education, Bar-Ilan University Clinical and Educational Psychologist and an expert on Dynamic Assessment (DA) of Learning Potential. Known as a leader and developer of the DA movement and taught in more than 190 international workshops around the world.
He has published many studies and books in the field of DA, mediated learning experience, and cognitive education programs, as well as 7 dynamic assessment tests for young children that are used all over the world.
