Transcript of Vygotsky: His Theories, Your Classroom

His Theories,
Your Classroom Introduction to: Mrs. Merges Who is Lev Vygotsky and what is all this cognitive mombo jumbo about? Ok So I Understand Vygotsky's Theories, but How can I Apply Them in My Class? "Learning is finding out what you already know, Doing is demonstrating that you know it, Teaching is reminding others that they know it as well as you do. We are all learners, doers, and teachers." Richard Davis Bach Let's watch this teacher as she scaffolds some students while learning spelling. Notice she shows them the technique, then they do it together. Finally the scaffolding is removed and the students do it alone. http://www.selah.co.uk/aboutus.html Check out this board game for use in your classroom. It uses Vygotskian technqies by having students teach each other and interact socially. And finally if you have any extra time, please watch this video. As a teacher with an ELA and Literacy specialization I found this interesting. It shows a classroom in the UK where they use Vygotsky's theories for teaching literacy. Identify Your Students
