Jean Piaget's Early Life:
He was born in Switzerland in 1896.
He began showing an interest in the
natural sciences at a very early age.
By age 11, he had already started his
career as a researcher by writing a
short paper on an albino sparrow.
He continued to study the natural
sciences and received his Ph.D. in
Zoology from University of Neuchâtel

He married Valentine Châtenay

His observations of his own
children served as the basis
for many of his later theories.

In this stage, children have better
understanding of their thinking skills. Children begin to
think logically about concrete events, but have difficulty
understanding abstract or hypothetical concepts, thus
most of them still have a hard time in problem- solving.
involves thinking from a specific experience to
a general principles.
Using a general principle to determine the
outcome of specific event.
One of the most important developments
in this stage is an understanding of
reversibility, or awareness that actions can be
reversed. An example of this is being able to
reverse the order of relationships between
3 + 4 = 7
7 – 4 = 3
Elementary- aged children learns in
sequential manner, meaning they need to
understand numbers before they can
perform a mathematical equation.
Each milestone that develops is
dependent upon the previous milestone they

they enjoy rhymes, riddles and jokes
their attention span is longer
they can follow more involved stories
they are learning letters and words

combinations of words
Information- Processing Skills
Several theorists argue that:
like a computer, the human mind is a system
that can process information through the
application of logical rules and strategies.
they also believe that the minds receives
information, performs operations to change
its form and content, stores and locates it
and generates responses from it.
