Piaget vs. Vygotsky Cognitive Constructivism Essay

… Unlike Piaget, Vygotsky addressed the social and cultural influences that children have in their cognitive development (Davies, 2004). Quite different from what Piaget thought, Vygotsky emphasized the importance of the roles that older individuals play on the cognitive development of children. He thought that interaction with adults, such as parents, teachers, and older children, allowed them to learn what their role would be. He believed that children once getting help from these older figures, would eventually learn to think on their own and be able to function intellectually without the assistance of anyone (Palincsar, 1998). With babies, he thought that they were born with innate capabilities to understand and learn form the people around them, but in the end, their cognitive development was due to…. [read more]

Pedagogic Model: Teaching Technology in Special Education Dissertation

… " (Dougiamas, 1998) Such trivial constructivism, though, is the bedrock from which Glaserfelds more radical constructivism springs. He continues to state that because knowledge is constructed by the learner, and because no two learners are the same, knowledge itself is not absolute. There is a degree to which knowledge is an illusion, and every individual constructs their own conception of reality which (while susceptible to the demands of "real" or normal reality) does not necessarily align with the normal paradigm. Constructivism does embrace this relativistic and existential approach to reality, but it also holds as a primary value the idea of constraint which enables the thinkers to participate in social interaction and mainstream reality. (Glasersfeld)



One interesting area of constructionist theory is…. [read more]
