Feuerstein Program

Erasmus Primary School utilises the Feuerstein programs developed by Professor Reuven Feuerstein.  Professor Feuerstein maintained that intelligence is not fixed, that it is a state rather than a trait.  The Feuerstein Method teaches the vitally important, and often overlooked, skill of learning how to learn.  This unique educational technique combines specailly designed instruments and mediation in order to identify and enhance an individual's learning potential.

Based on the theory that intelligence is dynamic and modifiable it seeks to enhance fundamental thinking skills, providing students with concepts, strategies and techniques to function as independent learners.

Erasmus acknowledges Independent Schools Victoria for providing training and support for implementation across the whole school.
