Storyboard Text

  • Jean Piaget's Theory of Cognitive Development
  • This theory explains how a child constructs a mental model of the world. 
  • Cognitive development is a process that occurs due to biological maturation and interaction with the environment.
  • The components are: schemas, assimilation and accommodation
  • There are three basic components to Piaget's cognitive theory
  • Schemas are the basic building blocks of cognitive models, and enable us to form a mental representation of the world.
  • An example is when the baby suck the breast with a technique that he already developed.
  • Schemas
  • Assimilation
  • When the baby sucks the bottle he discovers that this is a diferent situation to suck the breast.
  • Which is using an existing schema to deal with a new object or situation.
  • Accommodation
  • This happens when the existing schema (knowledge) does not work, and needs to be changed to deal with a new object or situation.
