    Children think differently than adults, and therefore develop their thoughts differently. According to the psychology book, cognitive development can be described as the study of how children acquire the ability to learn, think, reason, communicate, and remember. One can observe a great difference between a 3-year-old preschooler’s thinking pattern and a 9-year-old student’s thinking pattern. Each child has a different thinking ability which falls into a stage of Piaget’s theory of stages of…

In this essay, I will compare and contrast two cognitive theories in child development and define how these theories might be applied by professionals working with children and families.

    In the 1920's Jean Piaget realized that children have a different way of thinking than adults do. After realizing this he decided to invest his time into trying to figure out why. He eventually came up with the 4 stages of child development that every single child goes through. The stages go from when an infant is born until it is around 11 years old. Every child is in the sensorimotor stage until they get to be around 2 years old. During this stage infants become area of their senses like touch…

    dress me up for school, I did sob because I could not take my doll with me to school. While in elementary school, I imagined her at home, missing me and often feeling lonely. This represents a lack of ability to differentiate inanimate objects from animate objects. I did become flustered and confused whenever my parents said, "she's just a doll". Of course I knew it was a doll but I put life into it through imagination. Many children like myself see no sense in knowing false perceptions because…

    Three Main Principles of Piaget’s Theory Piaget’s theory of cognitive development was based on three main principles which are assimilation, accommodation and equilibration First it is important to define the term ‘schema’. Schema is a cognitive representation of activities or things (Oakley 2004). For example, when a baby is born it will have an automatic response for sucking in order to ensure that it can feed and therefore grow (Oakley 2004). As the baby grows, this schema will become…

    Jean Piaget, a Swiss psychologist and genetic epistemologist, is one of the most widely known cognitivist; he studied how children think as well as the nature of intelligence. According to (Cherry, Jean Piaget Biography (1896-1980), 2016), “Prior to Piaget’s theory, children were often thought of simply as mini-adults. Instead, Piaget suggested that the way children think is fundamentally different from the way that adults think.” “Piaget was the first psychologist to make a systematics study of…

    Jean Piaget’s theory is very interesting. The cognitive development is all the mental activities. The thinking, knowing, remembering, and communicating. Jeans studies made him believe that a child’s mind grows in stages. The older we get the more our brains develop. Our intellectual progression has to do with all of our experiences we have in our life time. We have schemas as out brain is maturing. Where we have experiences where we use and adjust to these schemas. They change a lot the older we…

    and concentrate without being distracted. Piaget performed a number of experiments centered on centration called the conservation concept experiments. In all of the experiments, the children are shown two objects that are equal. Once the children take in the information in front of them, the object is changed in a way that makes it look different but does not change the dimension of interest. An example of this is the conservation of liquid experiment. This experiment put a cup of water in a…

    I have known Sarah all my life, she is my sister. Based on Sarah’s age, I observed to see if she fell into Piaget’s Preoperational Stage of Cognitive Development. To determine this I answered the following questions: Does Sarah understand that an object or word can represent something else? Can Sarah focus on more than one activity at the same time? Does Sarah problem solve or learn through creative play? Does Sarah have an egocentric viewpoint? Can Sarah tell that quantity stays the same, even…
