Theorists in 140

Post explains what it's all about, and why I've been doing this. One of the most common inquiries I deal with is people asking for information on different theorists on child development - figures such as Jean Piaget, Maria Montessori, Lev Vygotsky etc. For a few years now I've found that students seem to struggle with finding enough information on different theorists - and yet there really is plenty of good quality, freely available information out there if you know how to look for it. So the idea behind Theorists in 140 was really quite simple - I would try to demonstrate that a single tweet could contain enough information to give you at least a basic overview (and often much more detail) of a theorist's ideas.

Judging what qualifies as 'reliable' information is of course notoriously difficult when it comes to the Web, so I set some ground rules: Loris Malaguzzi John Bowlby.

Children’s services- Child development theorists

Ainsworth, through her research looking at the attachment process in both African and American cultures, identified the characteristics of a secure and insecure attachment between mother and baby. How do the theories of Bowlby and Ainsworth apply to the care of children? The work done by Bowlby and Ainsworth on attachment has had a significant effect on the caregiving practices used for infants and toddlers in care. Research in the area of contact between mother and baby immediately after birth had a significant influence on changing birth procedures in maternity hospitals.

Theories of Play Many theorists support the idea that play is central in children’s lives and researach indicates that those children who do not get ample opportunities for play do not have the opportunities to make permanent neurological connections neccessary for learning (Packer Isenberg, 2002, p.2).

Constructivism: Piaget Constructivist theorists, such as Piaget, believe play is an important concept necessary for cognitive growth.

Letters to the editor, enquiries, comments, submissions and contributions can be sent to Marilyn Fleer Monash University In recent years sociocultural theory has provided an important conceptual tool for re-thinking many practices in early childhood education (e.g. Anning, Cullen & Fleer, 2004; Edwards, 2001; Edwards, 2003). While much has been gained, many taken-for-granted practices still remain in need of critique. Keywords: child development, sociocultural, early childhood education, cross-cultural, culturally and linguistically diverse. Introduction Contemporary early childhood education in many English-speaking countries foregrounds the importance of educators' ‘Child Development' knowledge. In drawing upon sociocultural theory and socio-historical research we seek to problematise the term ‘Child Development'.
