Abstract

The research aims to find the effectiveness of using an educational program based on the theory of cognitive flexibility in the achievement of the students of the Education College. To achive this, the researchers chose a semi-experimental design with a post. Test for two groups, one experimental and the other is the control. The sample consisted of (100) male and female students from the second grade Department of educational and psychological Sciences in the Educational College for the academic year (2019-2020). They were randomly divided into two groups with each group consisted of (50) students, one of them as experimental group, which was taught through the program based on the theory of cognitive flexibility and the second as a control group was taught in the traditional way. The two groups were rewarded in (age, academic level, previous information and the intelligence). And the educational program and the research tool (achievement test) were prepared and its validity and reliability were verified. The research experiment was implemented. Among the most important results that were reached in the post application of the research tool is the presence of statistically significant differences in favor of the experimental group students in their academic achievement, and in light of Research results The researchers made some recommendations, including the affirmation on the importance of using educational programs because they contribute to raising student achievement and encouraging teachers to use modern teaching strategies to help students work on the mind and reconsider teacher preparation programs in their comprehensive meaning and various aspects and develop them to suit the requirements of the twenty-first century. And the researchers made suggestions including conducting a similar study to use the educational program based on the theory of cognitive flexibility on dependent variables such as (motivation, scientific orientations, productive thinking. )
