Key facts<br />The Social Development Theory argues social interaction comes before development.<br />SDT also says socialization causes thought and consciousness. <br />The More Knowledgeable Other is any person who has a better grasp of a concept than the learner of said concept. <br />MKO is usually a teacher or an adult. However, the person may be any age and could also be a computer.<br />The Zone of Proximal Development is the distance between a student’s ability with guidance or assistance and the student’s ability to complete a task independently. <br />Vygotsky, the SDT theorist said learning occurred in this zone. <br />
The Theorist<br />Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934) is a Russian psychologist who theorized the Social Development Theory.<br />His work was known primarily in the West until it was published in 1962.<br />He stated: “Every function in the child’s cultural development appears twice: first, on the social level, and later, on the individual level; first, between people (interpsychological) and then inside the child (intrapsychological).”<br />
The teacher and the theory<br />With the SDT in mind the teacher would probably instigate group projects upon the students first learning a concept. <br />Second, the teacher would assign another project, this time individual, to enforce the idea and hopefully cause a deeper understanding. <br />With technology this might mean completing a PowerPoint presentation in a group, and then by oneself. <br />
The students and the theory<br />After being introduced to a new topic, the students may be confused. The initial group project would give them the ability to collaborate with one another.<br />Then, equip with a better understanding, the student should be able to complete a task independently. <br />With technology in mind, the student would be able to figure out the basic process with the help of others, possibly via chat, and then complete most tasks independently. <br />
In my classroom<br />In most situations, the mere able to collaborate ideas can reinforce learning to a greater extent than a lecture ever could.<br />Then being forced to work alone “tests” the students ability to carry on their new skills to their own personal knowledge.<br />This would almost eradicate the need for tests.<br />
