STUDENTS’ SELF-EFFICACY AND FEURSTEIN INSTRUMENTAL ENRICHMENT
Keywords:learning, Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment, self – efficacy, locus of control, pre – adolescent
The present experimental study aims to highlight the role of the instrumental enrichment program proposed by Reuven Feurstein in improving pre-adolescent learning facilitating attitudes. We refer to perceived self-efficacy and locus of control. These traits were evaluated in a 40 children group at the beginning of the experimental stage with specific tests. The group was also divided into control group and experimental group. The intervention involved the organization of 12 workshops during which two tools from the Feuerstein method were used - Organization of points and Instructions. The statistical processing of the obtained data highlighted a significant increase in the perceived self-efficacy of the students we worked with, as well as a shift of emphasis from the locus of external control to the locus of internal control. These aspects allow for a better involvement in learning by increasing students' responsibility and self-confidence.
