    Hi.
    I grasped the cognitive development theory of both Bruner and Piaget, but I cannot related it to learning. Could you please clear this out for me, if possible? Thank you in advance.:confused:

    Piaget's theory is all about learning. Children learn about their environment through assimiliation/accomodation.

    What does Piaget mean by the cognitive development? Is it about one mental process that is of acquisition and intelligence? And is the cognitive development a result of change in the schemata?

    Are these innate? Or do we learn to use them?

    Depends if your asking what Piaget thought, or what is true. I think Piaget would say that the ability to assimilate/accomodate is innate, not sure though. However, for piaget knowledge is generally learned via accomodation/assimilation.

    Scaffolding isn't Piaget. I don't think scaffolding is even Vygotsky (i don't know why a level textbooks attribute scaffolding to vygotsky)...

    What exam board are you sitting the exam with? Only there's no mention of Piaget or Vygotsky in my AQA book... Do I need to know this?
