REPIN: Comparing theories of learning Piaget and Vygotsky. Comment: The individual versus the social aspect of learning. It funny how so many students are receiving their instruction on-line, which at least pragmatically makes interaction a challenge, I wonder what these theorists would say about this.
Graphic of the stage theories of Kohlberg, Erikson, and Piaget. (Jean Piaget's Theory of Cognitive Development, Lawrence Kohlberg's Stages of Moral Development, and Erik Erikson's Stages of Psychosocial Development.) Study for ASWB/LCSW!
PIAGET-COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY/ORIGIN: Jean Piaget believied children think differently as they undergo four stages of cognitive development. EXPLANATION: "Schemas" are one's units of knowledge; that is a dog. "Assimilation" is when new knowledge is added to a schema; dogs have fur and bark. "Accommodation" is when new information alters or creates new schema; that is similar to a dog but it is a cat. EXAMPLE: Jill manipulated little Joe's dog Schema by making him believe mice were also dogs.
