Fish in a Euro Box

Fish in a Euro Box


The project

People take educational contents in different ways such as text-based, image-based or auditory. And they process this information in their own personal style and manner.

The project "Fish in a Euro Box“ addressed the issue of image-based learning. During the two-year cooperation the project partners tested and refined the learning method "Fish in a box", which is successfully used in England to support people with learning difficulties. The method makes use of boxes as visual elements in order to structure tasks or problem solution processes. This supports the students in developing own problem solutions based on their individual requirements and approaches.

The project results - a DVD and a training manual - serve as guidelines for professionals of vocational training and guidance on how to implement the FIAEB method. Major focus is put on case studies that are displayed on the DVD and are supplemented by explanations in the training manual. The FIAEB method can be used as complementary approach by trainers and social workers, working for instance with people with learning disabilities, disadvantaged young people or recovering substance misusers. The German version of the material can be ordered by contacting the project responsible mentioned below.
