Cognitive Development General Prinicipals of development:

3. Development is marked by sprut and plateaus.
4. Heredity and environment interact in their effects on development.
5. Children's own behaviors influence their development. behavior heredity


environment Developmental process:
1. Brain continues to develop througout childhood, adolescence and adulthood.
Synaptogenesis (synapsis fromed in the brain) is genetic ; elementary more than adults-why? how does this apply to teaching?
2. Children have a natural tendency to organize their expereinces.
Piaget says things children learn & do are organized into SCHEMES (groups of similar actions or thoughts that are used repeatedly in response to the environment). what are some things children do that are schemes?
3. Children are naturally inclined to make sense of and adapt to their environment.
Assimiliation- responding & interpreting an object or event consistent with existing scheme.
4. Development builds on prior acquisitions.
children rarely start from scratch
5. Interactions with the physical environment promote development.
6. Language development facilitates cognitive development.
Vygotsky says thought and language are two distinct functions until about age two, where we combine these elements.
7. Interactions with other people promote development. Zone of proximal development:
