This is a honest attempt to simplify the concept of the great man- Jean Piaget, in my own understanding. If any deviation from original concept, please suggest me, I will be highly grateful.

Piaget's concept-constructivist structuralism

  1. 1. Dr. RAM S. MATORIA JEAN PIAGET’S constructivist structuralism: A DYNAMIC CONCEPTION PSYCHIATRIC CENTRE, SMS MEDICAL COLLEGE, JAIPUR
  2. 2. PIAGET’S ASSUMPTIONS………..  Knowledge can be described in terms of structures that change with development.  As children develop, new schemes emerge, and are sometimes integrated with each other into cognitive structures.  Piaget defined cognitive development more than the addition of new facts and ideas into existing store of information.  He propounded that Cognitive development results from the interactions that children have with their physical and social environments.
  3. 3. PIAGET’S ASSUMPTIONS………..  Piaget's approach was “constructivist structuralism,” according to which mental structures are built through the interaction of the child and the world.  Mental structures originate through the actions of the child on objects as the child strives to adapt to the environment.  His view of the child as an active constructor of her or his knowledge rather than a passive recipient of information, on one hand, or a genetically predetermined knower, on the other.
  4. 4. PIAGET’S ASSUMPTIONS………..  What Piaget deemed innate was only an intelligent functioning that makes possible the construction of progressively more adequate structures of knowledge.  This improvement of structures is based on abstractions from actions performed over time, and qualitative improvements makes more comprehensive & more adaptive to next stage
  5. 5. Main three influences on children’s cognitive development Piaget explained that three dominant influenced factors on children’s cognitive development as: 1. Maturation: It is the unfolding of biological changes that are genetically programmed into us at birth. 2. Activity: Activity is related with maturation directly. This means that an increase maturations means child will be more cognitively develop and act to the environment and surroundings and learn from those actions. 3. Transmission: The word transmission is used to describe the act of learning from others.
  6. 6. PIAGET’S APPROACH……. NATIVISM EMPIRICISM CONSTRUCTIVIST STRUCTRALISM 1.Assimilation 2.Accommodation 3.Equilibration
  7. 7. PIAGET’S: “CONSTRUCTIVIST STRUCTURALISM” Mental structures are built through the interaction of the child and the world INPUT INFORMATION- FIT TO SCHEMA INFORMATION - RELATED BUT NOT FIT TO SCHEMA DISEQILIBRATION SCREENING EQUILIBRATION ASSIMILATION INTEGRATED AS SUCH INCORPORATED WITH SOME ALTERATIONS ACCOMODATION COGNITIVE SCHEMATA 3 major ingredients for constructing cognitive structure (schemas):  Assimilation  Accommodation  Cognitive Equilibration
  8. 8. INFORMATION MATCH INTO SCHEMA INFORMATION RELATED BUT NOT MATCH TO SCHEMA ASSIMILATION “an inward- directed tendency” INTEGRATING REALITY INTO ONE’S OWN VIEW ACCOMMODATION “an outward- directed tendency” CHANGING ONE’S VIEW TO BETTER MATCH REALITY COGNITIVE EQUILIBRATION PIAGET’S: “CONSTRUCTIVIST STRUCTURALISM” Mental structures are built through the interaction of the child and the world “STRIKE A BALANCE” : TO CONSTRUCT SCHEMATA/STRUCTURE CC ADAPTATION “COGNITIVE SCHEMATA” ORGANIZATION INNATE:INTELLIGENTFUNCTIONING
