This research paper conceptualizes how Mediated Learning Experience can be used to enhance the Kipling Method used by teachers as a strategy to teach the Video Stimulus Response Component in Malay Language Oral. Using the Kipling method, the teachers will use questions (5W1H) to ask students about the content of the video. However, this strategy overlooks the need to develop the cognitive functions needed for students to form their responses. Hence, deploying the current teaching approach, there seems to be a i) lack of awareness of cognitive functions needed to perform the oral task ii) lack of mediation of the cognitive functions needed iii) lack of resources to conduct mediation.

The Mediated Learning Experience (MLE) by Feuerstein (1980) is the theory embedded in the theory of Social Cognitive Modifiability (SCM), which proposes that all cognitive deficiencies can be developed. MLE focuses on the quality of interaction between the learner and the environment via a mediator. The mediator plays an intentional role of explaining, emphasizing, interpreting or extending the environment so that the learner builds up a meaningful internal model of the context or the world experienced (Seng, Pou, Tan, 2003). The mediator who will be the teachers play an important role in mediating the specific interactions underpinned by the parameters of MLE to develop specific cognitive functions at the input, elaboration and output phase. This research paper therefore aims to use MLE to facilitate the development of cognitive functions at the different phases using questions and resources.
