An overview of Project Intelligence

Beatriz C. De Capdevielle

Abstract


With this article, an overview is given of a Venezuelan project which aims at improving
the ability of students to perform a wide variety of intellectually demanding tasks. This
project acknowledges that there is no substitute for thought. Conventional subject
matter is only taught in so far as it is helpful to realize the ultimate goal: that of
enhancing thinking skills. But perhaps the most important aspect of the project
is attitudes; particularly those that are most conducive to intellectual growth and
achievement.
Met hierdie artikel word 'n oorsig gegee oor 'n projek wat in Venezuela ontstaan het en
wat ten doe! het om studente te help om 'n wye verskeidenheid intellektueel inspannende
opdragte uit te voer. Die projek gee erkenning daaraan dat denkprosesse met
niks vervang kan word nie. Konvensionele lesmateriaal word ook slegs gebruik in
soverre dit kan bydra tot die bereiking van die uiteindelike doelwit, naamlik om die
denkvermoe te stimuleer. Maar die grootste klem val waarskynlik op instelling: die
soort instelling wat die grootste bydrae kan !ewer tot intellektuele groei en selfverwesenliking.
