Develop: Task 4

Applying Vygotsky’s theory

In professional roles working with young children, we play a key role in supporting and developing learning and language. Understanding your own memories and feelings about learning experiences will support you to understand the value and importance of your role for children. 

Completing this activity will develop your understanding of the way Vygotsky’s theory fits with your own experiences and views about learning.  This will be essential for you to see how Vygotsky’s theory can be applied to working with children and supporting them in learning language.  

Think back to a time when you remember learning something as a child, examples might be learning to ride a bike, or cook or make a snowball. Using the template below, make notes about your experience. Then repeat this for a more recent learning experience you’ve had and compare the two examples.
