    Discovery learning by Jerome Brunner. He has extracted from Piaget in which the physical sensory motor experience of the child which results in learned action-schemes, to representative schema which facilitate mental operations,

    Bruner also distinguished between three modes of representation or systems of processing in both the physical action and mental imagery and language) realms. In Bruner’s (1964) view, growth necessitates and is facilitated by manageable representation of “recurrent features”

    Two elements is of concern. The first has to do with the techniques or technologies that aid growing human beings to represent in a manageable way the recurrent features of the complex environments in which they live.

    It is fruitful, to distinguish three systems of processing information by which human beings construct models of their world through action, through imagery, and through language.

    A second concern is with integration, the means whereby acts are structured into higher-order ensembles, forming the use of larger and larger units of information for the solution of particular problems.
