  • Hello from Argentina... you did a great job, sorry if my english isn't good enough.
    I'm studing to be a schoolteacher so... we have the possibility to go deeper in Jean Piaget's works.
    I hope to see more works like this because it has been made in a simple and excellent way, I really mean it, I believe that works made from a simple explanation make us understand more about something that hides the most interesting things in the most little details...
    Well, sorry if this message was not written in the most correct way.
    Bye, and good luck with all you are doing! Grisel.

Piaget and Cognitive Development

  1. 1. Jean Piaget and his Theories: Cognitive Development and Epistemology
  2. 2. Through play, children assimilate information into their schemas, and accommodate to their surroundings. Play Is Essential To the development Of the the human mind.
  3. 3. Top Left: Albino Sparrow Top Right: Mollusk (snail) Bottom: Museum of Natural Science in Neuchatel
  4. 4. Differentiating the part from the whole.
  5. 5. Piaget and His Piaget and His Family. Wife, Valentine.
  6. 6. Accommodation = Person Shooting Ball. Assimilation = Ball Going Thru Net.
  7. 7. Assimilation Accommodation A balance An imbalance Creates Creates Equilibrium. Disequilibrium.
  8. 8. The Stages Of Cognitive Development: Sensory Motor “Object (Birth-2) Permanence” Preoperational “Egocentrism” (2-7) Concrete “Interiorized Operations (7-11) Action” Formal Operations “Abstract (11-16) Thought”
  9. 9. Sensory-Motor Stage (Birth-2) Six Substages: 1. Random and reflex actions (0-1) 2. Primary circular reactions (1-4) 3. Secondary circular reactions (4-8) 4. Coordination of secondary schemata (8-14) 5. Tertiary circular reactions (12-18) 6. Invention of new means through mental combinations (18-2yrs)
  10. 10. Sensory Motor Substages (1-3) Random and Reflex Actions (1st substage): “Random but Important.” Primary Circular Reactions (2nd substage): “The recognition of shapes, objects and faces.” Secondary Circular Reactions (3rd substage): “Imitation.”
  11. 11. Sensory Motor Substages (4-6) Coordination of secondary New Means through new schemata (4th substage): combinations (6th substage): “Intent. Object Independence. Symbolic “Thought before action.” Thought.” Tertiary circular reactions (5th substage): “Rapid expansion of Schema.”
  12. 12. Preoperational Stage (2-7) Preconceptual Stage (ages two to four) Preceptual or Intuitive Thought Period (ages four to seven) Key Terms and Concepts: “Egocentric behavior” “transductive reasoning” “syncretic thought” “juxtaposition reasoning” “animism” “artificialism”
  13. 13. Preconceptual Stage (2-4) In the Preconceptual stage the child begins to use language and mental images, and attempts to generalize in illogical ways.
  14. 14. Preceptual/Intuitive Thought Period (4-7) In the Period of Intuitive Thought, Problem-solving depends on instinctive Thought and appearances, not on judgment Or reasoning.
  15. 15. Concrete Operations (7-11) “… the child now can now operate in thought on concrete objects or their representations.” --Logic V. Surface Appearances.
  16. 16. Formal Operations (11, or 12 -->) “Operate on Operations” “Thinking about thought rather than about concrete things.” -- Hypotheses
  17. 17. Epistemology is simply The development of Knowledge or logical Structures over time. How do we come to know what we know? Development is continuous and consistent.
