"Thinking Fundamentals" specializes in creating complete computerized educational systems designed to enhance learning within a technologically- based environment.
"Thinking Fundamentals" is unrivaled in our ability to develop state-of-the-art computer-based systems that combine interactive software, playful didactic accessories, and unique electronic interfaces that maximize the potential of education through the latest in innovative technology.
At "Thinking Fundamentals", we are committed to taking technology to the limit in educating children. For this, we have received the "Computer Software Prize" from the Office of the Prime Minister of Israel.
In all its learning systems, "Thinking Fundamentals" places special emphasis on the creation of a comprehensive educational environment designed for groups or for individual participants in which computer activities and technologically-advanced devices are combined with the use of tangible three-dimensional accessories.
Among the main educational objectives covered by "Thinking Fundamental's" systems are:
- Development of cognitive skills
- Expansion of general knowledge
- Improvement of language and communication proficiency
- Enrichment of social skills and encouragement of cooperative learning
- Development of physical coordination
"Thinking Fundamentals" systems are based on theoretical educational research done by leading pedagogues and educators in the world, who support the importance of spatial orientation and understanding in the learning process; the use of the tangible and abstract in different stages of learning, immediate positive and corrective feedback; the need to use the body and motion in the learning process; and the need for developing creative and diverse ways of thinking. "Thinking Fundamental's" computerized learning systems are designed to provide whole range of channels that apply to all the senses, and thereby opening new doors to knowledge.
The systems enable learning through increasingly challenging interactive activities, which are graded according to the specified level of cognitive abilities, so that skills acquired at earlier stages are applied in later activities.
All product development and production is done in-house, from the initial conceptual stage, through script, animation, recording, programming, electronic and carpentry work, publishing, creating instructional accessories and documentation.
This allows us to experiment with various pedagogical ideas, until we reach the most optimal educational solutions. Additionally, it affords us the flexibility to tailor educational solutions to meet the specific needs of our clients.
