  • Comparing Piaget's Theory

    with Vygotsky’s theory who believed that more challenging tasks promote cognitive development. However, this limitation could also have arisen from his tasks confusing competence and performance. For example, a child may have had the competence of object permanence but the inability to perform the search. Another limitation was that Piaget overestimated the role of logical thinking and understated the importance of context and interaction (Lourenço, 2016). Certainly, culture and schooling…

  • Three Main Principles Of Piaget's Theory Of Cognitive Development

    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’.

  • Reflective Essay: Objects In The Classroom

    Looking at my poster, there is a variety of objects that appear to have nothing in common. What they do have in common is me.

Does Sarah problem solve or learn through creative play? Does Sarah have an egocentric viewpoint? Can Sarah tell that quantity stays the same, even…

  • Jerome Bruner's Theory Analysis

    developing with the aid of physical objects stops at the age of 4 Learning-T (2014) and he does not appear to continue any emphasis on resources after this age. In my opinion, the use of stimulants is often very useful, even far past the age of 4. I, myself, still find the likes of counters and blocks helpful when doing mathematics, as it often depends on the type of learner one is. Alternatively to Piaget’s idea, Bruner has been know to promote the use of objects throughout education, and…
