Vygotsky, ZPD, Scaffolding, Connectivism and Personal Learning Networks

Zone of proximal development In the middle circle, representing the zone of proximal development, students cannot complete tasks unaided, but can complete them with guidance. The zone of proximal development, often abbreviated as ZPD, is the difference between what a learner can do without help and what he or she can do with help.[1] It is a concept introduced, yet not fully developed, by Soviet psychologist Lev Vygotsky (1896–1934) during the last ten years of his life.[2] Vygotsky stated that a child follows an adult's example and gradually develops the ability to do certain tasks without help.[3] Vygotsky and some educators believe that education's role is to give children experiences that are within their zones of proximal development, thereby encouraging and advancing their individual learning.[4] Origins[edit] The concept of the zone of proximal development was originally developed by Vygotsky to argue against the use of academic, knowledge-based tests as a means to gauge students' intelligence.

Caractériser les apprentissages sur le web2.0 « Techniques innovantes pour l'enseignement supérieur Steve Wheeler nous régale d’un nouveau diaporama « Researching Social Media in Education: What can we learn? », dans lequel on retrouve l’importance de l’engagement dans les apprentissages sur le web pour permettre des apprentissages en profondeur.

On peut alors regretter du nombre limité d’exemples, il y aurait sans doute un intérêt à développer un portail, une médiathèque de recueil d’expériences qui permette de paver une telle table. Un autre aspect qui me paraîtrait important de creuser, c’est de voir les dimensions qui peuvent être couvertes par tel ou tel outil. Qu’en pensez vous? Sur ce genre de tableau, on aurait bien envie de chercher à élargir l’usage de certains outils. Like this: J'aime chargement…

Social Development Theory (Vygotsky Summary: Social Development Theory argues that social interaction precedes development; consciousness and cognition are the end product of socialization and social behavior. Originator: Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934). Key terms: Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD), More Knowledgeable Other (MKO) Vygotsky’s Social Development Theory Vygotsky’s Social Development Theory is the work of Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934), who lived during Russian Revolution. Vygotsky’s theory is one of the foundations of constructivism. Major themes: Social interaction plays a fundamental role in the process of cognitive development. Vygotsky focused on the connections between people and the sociocultural context in which they act and interact in shared experiences (Crawford, 1996). Applications of the Vygotsky’s Social Development Theory Many schools have traditionally held a transmissionist or instructionist model in which a teacher or lecturer ‘transmits’ information to students.

Moteurs: Et le gagnant est... Google et Yahoo ex æquo! Tel est le résultat de l’évaluation que j’ai réalisée en décembre 2005 avec mes étudiants aixois et dont j’ai déjà dévoilé quelques aspects sur ce blog (voir 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Le dernier volet de l’étude (sans doute le plus intéressant) concerne le classement des différents moteurs en fonction de la pertinence – du moins de la pertinence telle qu’elle peut être perçue par un panel d’utilisateurs. Je rappelle tout d’abord brièvement le protocole utilisé. L’étude complète est disponible ici au format pdf si vous voulez connaître plus de détails. Les moteurs choisis sont trois moteurs américains, Google, Yahoo et MSN, ainsi que trois moteurs français, Exalead, Voilà (développé par France Telecom et offert sur le portail Wanadoo) et Dir.com du groupe Iliad, qui constitue plus une plate-forme expérimentale qu’un moteur à visée commerciale (Dir. Quatorze thèmes ont été retenus de façon à refléter une grande variété d’utilisations (Actualités, Animaux, Cinéma, etc.).

Classroom Applications of Vygotsky's Theory Ch. 2, p. 47 Classroom Applications of Vygotsky’s Theory Vygotsky’s concept of the zone of proximal development is based on the idea that development is defined both by what a child can do independently and by what the child can do when assisted by an adult or more competent peer (Daniels, 1995; Wertsch, 1991). According to Vygotsky, for the curriculum to be developmentally appropriate, the teacher must plan activities that encompass not only what children are capable of doing on their own but what they can learn with the help of others (Karpov & Haywood, 1998). Vygotsky’s theory does not mean that anything can be taught to any child. Instruction can be planned to provide practice in the zone of proximal development for individual children or for groups of children.

E-Learning Queen key to learning Viva Vygotsky! Freedom of Thought Galina Doyla & Sue Palmer He lived for only 38 years, but in his last decade (1924-1934), the Russian thinker Lev Vygotsky transformed the study of developmental psychology. His cultural-historical theory caused an explosion of interest in Russia, and inspired much original research by other psychologists. Tragically, these innovative and inspirational ideas were immediately suppressed. After Stalin's death Vygotsky was rediscovered by another generation of psychologists and teachers. For teachers, Vygotsky provides a theoretical underpinning for effective practice. Vygotsky believed that true education is not the mere learning of specific knowledge and skills, it is the development of children's learning abilities - that is, their capacity to think clearly and creatively, plan and implement their plans, and communicate their understanding in a variety of ways. Cultural tools are not inherited genetically. Vygotsky calls this an external monologue.

A peine la fronde des internautes et des grandes sociétés de l’Internet ayant poussé le Congrés américain à ajourner la procédure législative visant à adopter les lois anti-piratage SOPA et PIPA terminée qu’une nouvelle menace pése sur un internet libre. L’ACTA, un traité mondial, pourrait permettre à de grandes entreprises de censurer Internet. La pétition a déjà rassemblé plus de 1,6 millions de signatures. Ce traité conçu comme un accord commercial a été négocié secrètement sans aucun débat parlementaire et sans aucune consultation des organisations internationales pour imposer une logique répressive dictée par les industries du divertissement. Vacuité d’une offre légale et des parlementaires promulguant des lois répressives. Faut-il agir et comment ? Agir donc.
