“ Vygotskian theory stipulates that the development of the child's higher mental processes depends on the presence of mediating agents in the child's interaction with the environment. Vygotsky himself primarily emphasised symbolic tools-mediators appropriated by the children in the context of particular sociocultural activities, the most important of which he considered to be formal education. Russian students of Vygotsky researched two additional types of mediation – mediation through another human being and mediation in the form of an organised learning activity . Thus the acquisition model became transformed into a mediation model. Some mediational concepts such as scaffolding (see Wood, 1999) or apprenticeship (Rogoff, 1990) appeared as a direct assimilation of Vygotskian ideas; others such as Feuerstein's (1990) mediated learning experience have been developed independently and only later acquired new meaning in the context of sociocultural theory.” ...from Kozulin, A (2003) Vygotsky's Educational Theory in Cultural Context , Cambridge University Press (My highlights added).
