KEL5100: CHILD DEVELOPMENT THEORY
History of cognitive approach
Cognition is the mental activity and behavior that allows us to understand the world. It includes the functions of learning, perception, memory, and thinking;...
CognitiveDevelopment contains the very best empirical and theoretical work on the development of perception, memory, language, concepts, thinking, problem solving, metacognition, and social cognition. Cognitivedevelopment is the development of a person’s mental capacity to engage in thinking ,reasoning...
My understanding of the cognitivedevelopment theory is that it is based on the development of a person's thought process. This thought process works to influence how we interact and understand the world around us. In my readings I learned that child development was generally...
“Childhood” or theory of “the child” are difficult concepts to explore because there is no single accepted definition of childhood, or what constitutes a child. Although it might seem easy to differentiate a child from an adult – physiologically, cognitively or emotionally, childhood can...
instance, Piaget believed there to be schemes with four distinct stages of cognitivedevelopment. Between birth and the time a child is ready for school, he/she will pass through two of the four stages. These stages are the Sensorimotor Stage and the Preoperational Stage. Alternatively, it could be argued...

1) What are the infant states of arousal? How long do they spend in each state on average?
a.i) Active Sleep- REM (50%)
a.ii) Quiet Sleep- Non-REM (30%)
b) Transitional (7%)
c.i) Quiet alert (7%)
The topic of this research paper is the development of physical, cognitive and social-emotional development as it pertains to growth, development, and learning in a child according to research. The development of the child influences the abilities of the child from birth to...
There are three main theories of development that I shall discuss in this assignment, 'Cognitive', the main theorist being, 'Piaget', (1896 - 1980), The, 'Psychosocial Theory', 'Erikson', (1902 - 1994), and, The 'Psychosexual', of, 'Freud', (1856 - 1939).
Cognitive Psychology draws the comparison between...
The purpose of this report is to examine the cognitive processes of two participants while carrying out a sorting task, then link these observations to Piaget's stages of cognitivedevelopment. Cognitivedevelopment as defined by Gale Cengage (2005) is “The construction of thought...
Booklet in relation to how children develop and learn and how teachers and other adults impact upon this process. Reflect upon the impact the knowledge gained from this reading has had on your own developing understanding of your role as a teacher.”
I have been asked to critically examine and discuss...
Adaptation | What it says: adapting to the world through assimilation and accommodation |
Assimilation | The process by which a person takes material into their mind from the environment, which may mean changing the evidence of their senses to make it fit. |
Theories of Play, Development and Learning
Child development was previously largely ignored, and there was little attention to the progress which occurs during childhood and adolescence in terms of cognitive abilities, physical growth and language usage. However, researchers have found interest to study...
Piaget called the schema the basic building block of intelligent behavior – a way of organizing knowledge. Indeed, it is useful to think of schemas as “units” of knowledge, each relating to one aspect of the world, including objects, actions and abstract (i.e. theoretical) concepts.
When a child's existing...
1. JEAN PIAGET
Jean Piaget (French: [ʒɑ̃ pjaʒɛ]; 9 August 1896 – 17 September 1980) was a Swiss developmental psychologist and philosopher known for his epistemological studies with children. His theory of cognitivedevelopment and epistemological view are together called "genetic epistemology".

The main stages of cognitivedevelopment
Sensory motor stage(0-2)
Piaget's theory of cognitivedevelopment consists of four evident phases. The first is referred to as the sensorimotor stage. This stage typically occurs between birth and two years of age. During the sensorimotor stage children at first rely solely on the reflexes (sucking and rooting for example) that...
